Poor Guillermo Del Toro. The man has made both critically acclaimed indies and giant robot-vs-monster movies, and yet he still struggles to get movies green-lit. This week, we learned that Hellboy 3, the long-rumored third part of a planned trilogy, has finally and definitively been declared dead. The director, along with star Ron Perlman and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, met but were apparently unable to figure out a way forward. A.V. Club staffers Alex McLevy and Danette Chavez try to break down what went wrong and where Del Toro should turn next. »

While it always seemed like a long shot, fans of Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy series (including us here at The Movie Bit) have been waiting for a third installment, especially since 2008’s Hellboy: The Golden Army ended on something of a cliffhanger. The years passed by and it came more and more apparent that Hellboy 3 could be just a pipe dream, despite Del Toro and star Ron Perlman’s willingness to get it done. It’s hard to gage what exactly was stopping it, but with Del Toro saying this would be the most expensive one to make, it could have been a money issue with studios put off by the fact that the first two movie only made a combined box office of $259 million. While that is still pretty respectable, it doesn’t exact;y light the world on fire. Finally wanting to get the ball rolling on the project, »

Despite all the recent excitement, Hellboy 3, unfortunately, isn’t happening at all. Director Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman have both confirmed the sad news. It’s a sad day for Hellboy fans. After a long hard fight to get Hellboy 3 off the ground, both Ron Perlman, who played the character in previous films, and […]

Since Hellboy II: The Golden Army came out in theaters in 2008, hope for a third film in the series has always burned bright among the fans of the big screen adaptation of the beloved Mike Mignola character. Today, though, that fire was snuffed out by a sobering announcement from writer/director Guillermo del Toro.
"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."
And so it looks like Ron Perlman won't don the red suit again. The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense is closed for business on the big screen, and although the Hellboy character will live on in the comic books and the previously made films, »

Hellboy has always been one of those franchises that has fared better with fans and critics than it has with mainstream audiences. The stories have been fun, albeit it a bit slow, but those familiar with the character recognize Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation as a faithful imagining of the character.
For better or worse, however, the films haven’t done amazingly at the box office. The first Hellboy, which was released in 2004, made just shy of $100 million on its $66 million budget. With that in mind, it seems unlikely that the studio even made their money back in its theater run, and is therefore a bit baffling that they followed through with the sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, which hit theaters in 2008. The movie had a budget of $85 million, and managed to rake in $160 million. With those numbers, it probably got closer to breaking even, but we can’t »

It may have missed out on an Oscar nomination for this month’s 89th Academy Awards, but Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them still featured some very impressive visual effects, and Rodeo FX has released a breakdown video showcasing their work on the Harry Potter spinoff prequel; take a look here…
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident…were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

The rollercoaster ride that has been Hellboy 3 is officially over. Director Guillermo Del Toro has refused to give up entirely on getting the last movie in the Hellboy trilogy made for nearly a decade now and recently, he gave fans some hope that the long-awaited sequel could finally happen. Today he delivered the unfortunate news that his last-ditch effort to get some traction on Hellboy 3 has failed and that the movie is definitely not happening. Ever.
Last month, Guillermo Del Toro took to Twitter in order to see if he could drum up some support for Hellboy 3 again. He threw up a Twitter poll and promised that if it got 100 thousand votes in 24 hours, he would sit down with star Ron Perlman and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola about Hellboy 3. He made good on his word and had the talks with all of the parties who would »
Bad news for “Hellboy” fans: a third installment of the dark fantasy superhero film is no longer in the cards. Director Guillermo del Toro made an announcement on his Twitter account this morning that a new sequel is definitely not happening (in his own words, “100% the sequel will not happen”).
The news might come as a surprise to “Hellboy” enthusiasts, as just this past January the director teased a possible third film by posting an “informal poll” on Twitter with the response options being only “Yes” and “Hell, yes.” In a second tweet, del Toro had said that if 100,000 votes came in 24 hours, he would sit down with franchise creator Mike Mignola and lead actor Ron Perlman to talk about a possible sequel. By the time the poll closed, it had 132,938 votes.
But back in October, »

Fans of Ron Perlman’s cigar-chomping demon have been petitioning for a third film in the cult fantasy series ever since the credits rolled on 2008’s The Golden Army, and though a recent, informal Twitter poll generated a renewed sense of interest in the long-rumored project – after garnering more than 100,000 votes, del Toro promised a “serious sit down” with Perlman and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola – it looks as though Hellboy 3 has been banished to the depths of development hell once and for all.
Per Twitter, the illustrious Mexican director turned in a status report, confirming that, after speaking with all parties – Perlman, Mignola and likely a handful of industry producers – Hellboy 3 has gone the way of the dodo.

Guillermo del Toro has laid a rumor to rest: “Hellboy 3” will “not happen,” he said on Twitter on Tuesday morning. 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 — Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT) February 21, 2017 In the past few weeks, the filmmaker has teased fans with “Hellboy 3,” putting polls on Twitter about the threequel and writing that he met with Ron Perlman, who is “in for the sit down.” Previously, when asked when fans might expect “Hellboy 3,” del Toro said plainly. »

“Hellboy 3” is one of those long discussed projects that people seemed more interested to talk about happening, than actually wanting to see happen. Aside from devoted Guillermo del Toro fans and Ron Perlman, I’m not sure the world was waiting with bated breath for the third installment in the series, but if you were, there’s some bad news today.
Del Toro hit Twitter this morning to declare that, now and forever, “Hellboy 3” is dead (and suggests that it’s pointless to keep asking him about it):
Hellboy 3 Sorry to report: Spoke w all parties.

One of the more coveted roles in Hollywood right now is that of time traveling mutant Cable, who will make his big screen debut in Deadpool 2. Plenty of aging action stars, such as Ron Perlman and Stephen Lang, have thrown their hat into the ring, hoping to get the filmmakers' attention. But last month Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman (who's not in the movie as far as anyone knows) teased that Pierce Brosnan had secured the job.
Both actors appeared in a social media blast that featured Reynolds, Jackman and Brosnan sitting on a couch doing the 'Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil' pose that monkeys sometimes like to do. Now, we have a little more proof to go on. Deadpool 2director David Leitch has been out promoting his new action sequel John Wick 2. And while he wouldn't confirm Pierce Brosnan's participation, he »
