Hellboy 3 Has Been Scrapped
Sad news for anyone keeping their fingers crossed for a third Hellboy movie, with director Guillermo Del Toro taking to Twitter to confirm that the project is officially dead in the water. No ifs, no buts... it isn’t happening.
"Hellboy 3 - Sorry to report: Spoke w all parties," tweeted the director. "Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about it.” Which sounds pretty final to us. Boooooo!
The announcement comes after years of rumours about a potential sequel, with Del Toro having battled hard to get the project up and running. Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman, has also been pretty vocal on the subject, making it clear he’d be up for a third go-around, should the stars so align. Sadly, it seems it wasn’t to be.
“Superhero seeks employment,” tweeted Perlman, following the news. “Likes pizza, cats, and the Marx bros.”
Give us a minute here... we have something in our eyes.
