Ron Perlman: “I’m fighting to get Hellboy 3 made”

June 19th, 2014 by Marc 1 Comment

We love Guillermo Del Toro and we REALLY love Hellboy, so it goes without saying that Hellboy III is top of our ‘must get made’ list. And it looks like we aren’t the only ones batting for it.

Ron Perlman has been chatting about the chances of himself and Del Toro getting the final Hellboy movie off the ground over at CBM and, while he admits it’s an uphill struggle, he confirms that there is an ending laid out and he’s fighting every day for it: “I’d like to finish it. I’d like for there to be a third film because the first two films were set up for this huge resolve and he (Del Toro) already understands what that resolve will look like. He never gave me the nuts and bolts of it, but he gave me a rather broad strokes sketch of what the third film would look like and it’s so epic and so deserved by the fans that hung in there for the first two that I really feel as though it’s essential that we make it. So I fight for it every day.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
