Ron Perlman Pressures Guillermo Del Toro to Make 'Hellboy 3'

The actor is using Jewish guilt to get the director moving on the final installment of this trilogy.

If Ron Perlman has his way, Hellboy 3 will become a reality. Here's what the actor had to say during the C2E2 convention in Chicago this weekend, where he revealed that he is trying to get director Guillermo del Toro to make one final installment.

"I've been giving Guillermo body shots for two years. We both walked away from Hellboy II agreeing that there would never be another one. But, with the passage of time, it became clear to me that he really always designed it as a trilogy. He has a very well-articulated idea of what the resolve would look like and it's amazingly theatrical and is epic in scope and would make for amazing cinema, with or without the first two movies. But there are so many questions posed in the first two films that absolutely need to be answered. I said, 'You owe it to the world to finish this trilogy.' I've been giving him Jewish guilt."


Both Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro revealed during Comic-Con 2012 that they are trying to make Hellboy 3 a reality, although we haven't heard anything regarding the project since then. The actor also acknowledged that the director does have a lot of projects on his slate, but that he wants to make the sequel very soon.

"He's just so busy, but I'm going to keep working away at the body. I'm pushing seventy so he better f****** do this soon."


2004's Hellboy earned $99 million worldwide, while the 2008 follow-up, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, made $160 million.

Ron Perlman will next be seen in Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, opening in theaters nationwide July 12.

Hellboy 3 is in development and stars Ron Perlman. The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro.

    i just finished re-watching h-boy 1&2. fantastic story. if they really want to get the ball rolling and the public to cry for a h-boy 3, they need to get both movies played more often on cable. it's easy to forget just how good these films are.

    @monkeyiron2-0 lets do it, though who is going to do what. I've taken acting lessons and work from time to time as a camera operator at times.

    @bawnian-dexeus He may suffer from ADHD. I mean, the dude just can't seem to stay on one project before talking up the next five.

    Del Toro has been spotty in his decision making. He left The Hobbit in order to make Pac Rim. While I expect Pac Rim to be a moneymaker, I'm not sold on its quality. I would be very happy if Del Toro went and completed the Hellboy trilogy, but his decision making leaves me wondering if he will choose to go back to that well.

    it's listed on his imdb page however I think the real reason is because he's got so many projects on the go that it's hard to focus on just one. All of us want it even Ron and he knows it. Personally I think that he really needs to focus on one project at a time.

    @monkeyiron2-0 honestly it's not about the money. It's not that Del Toro doesn't have the funds. It's getting him to do one and stop being lazy. That's all

    it's about time this 3rd movie got off the ground
    seriously, it's been 5 years since the 2nd one!
    the Angel of Death from 'The Golden Army' did say Liz would suffer once Hellboy fulfilled his destiny

    @monkeyiron2-0 can I get involved, I do more than being a camera operator. I've gotten several imdb thank yous, a executive producer credit which is coming up and a few more, need to get some more acting credits as well.

    Once this trilogy is done, I could see it expanding with someone else as Hell Boy.

    If anyone can get Del Toro to begin thinking of making and closing the trilogy once and for all, it would be Pearlman :]

    Is about time, make it a Trilogy! the first one was good, the second was original and better, make-up, instead of full CGI. Hellboy III: The Fire Rises, ha.
