Speaking to The Independent, Perlman, who starred in the 2004 del Toro directed Hellboy and its 2008 sequel, said he thinks the director should rethink his decision not to make a third film.
“Am I eager to do Hellboy 3? No, I’m 71 fucking years old. We owe this to the fans. And we should give it to them because it would be an epic conclusion.”
“So Guillermo, if you’re reading, I’m not done pounding you to get this fucking thing done,” he said.
In 2017, del Toro confirmed that Hellboy 3 was “100 per cent” not going to happen, saying: “Hellboy may move into a different direction. heartbroken- but, not up to me. I, for one, wish everyone involved the best of luck.”
Hellboy 3 Sorry to report: Spoke w all parties. Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about it
