Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman have been working for years to bring the final installment of the Hellboy trilogy to theaters. However, all hope was seemingly lost when del Toro noted the following a year ago:
“I don’t think it will happen. Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively. But it is proven almost impossible to finance. Not from my side, but from the studio side. If I was a multimillionaire, I would finance it myself, but I spend all my money on rubber monsters.”
But now there is a glimmer of hope from Perlman himself. He’s been rallying support for the sequel as of late, and it appears that those efforts might have paid off.
He laid down a pretty powerful hint on Instagram the other day, which you can see after the break…
Has a deal been made? Let’s hope so, because I need closure. Plus, the third film sounds like it’s going to be awesome. This is what del Toro had to say about the plot:
“The idea for it was to have Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the beast of the Apocalypse, and having him and Liz face the sort of, that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically vanquish the foe that he has to face in the 3rd film. He has to become the best of the Apocalypse to be able to defend humanity, but at the same time he becomes a much darker being.”
