Anyone who knows me should know that I am a huge fan of the first two Hellboy movies so to say I'd be stoked for a third outing of everybody's favourite stone-handed paranormal investigator would be a major understatement indeed.
Of course, nothing's set in stone (pun only slightly intended) just yet, but that never stopped me getting prematurely excited about a movie in the past and certainly won't do so now!
Read on after the jump for very few more details, and the (profit driven?) proposal for a third Hobbit movie (and by my reckoning, if The Hobbit warrants three movies, then LotR should have been about 30 movies long)
FOR a long time there's been little hope of a third Hellboy movie. That's because director Guillermo del Toro has always said he is too busy and star Ron Perlman was not keen to repeat the lengthy make-up process that turned him into the red demon do-gooder.
But there's now a fresh enthusiasm for the idea. And that's largely because Perlman overcame his reluctance and dressed as Hellboy to fulfil a boy's dream of meeting his favourite comic book character, in a gesture arranged by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
"I can say publicly that now we are together in trying [to do Hellboy 3]," del Toro told Entertainment Weekly. "We're going to make an effort to do it. I hope it happens."
