It's been seven years since Hellboy II: The Golden Army hit theaters in 2008, and hardcore fans have been clamoring for Hellboy 3 ever since. Franchise star Ron Perlman has long fought to bring Hellboy 3 to life, but it isn't known if this project will ever get off the ground. While promoting his new Amazon Studios TV series Hand of God, Ron Perlman revealed that he thought he was done with the character, until he heard writer-director Guillermo del Toro's take on the sequel. Here's what the actor had to say in a new interview with Empire.
"I really feel as though I'm done with the character. I don't have a burning desire to put that shit on again. But Guillermo del Toro told me what the resolve of the trilogy would look like, in broad strokes, and it's such an amazingly theatrical, cinematic idea, that I found it essential that we do it. »
Ron Perlman has revealed new Hellboy III story details, but will we ever get another sequel? Will we ever get to see a third Hellboy movie? That remains the question as those who were involved with the first two films continue to talk about the possibility, even though the last movie came out over seven years…
Over the past few months an interview with Ron Perlman doesn’t go by without some comments about Hellboy III, the potential concluding chapter of Guillermo del Toro’s comic book adaptation, and sure enough he’s been speaking more about the possible project during an interview with Empire to promote his new Amazon series Hand of God.
“I really feel as though I’m done with the character,” states Perlman. “I don’t have a burning desire to put that shit on again. But Guillermo told me what the resolve of the trilogy would look like, in broad strokes, and it’s such an amazingly theatrical, cinematic idea, that I found it essential that we do it. We were designed to be a trilogy, with a beginning, a middle and an end. We’ve only done two-thirds, so I feel that we’re not really done until we finish it. »

Actor Ron Perlman has expressed several times in recent months that he really wants to return for Hellboy 3, at one point begging fans to petition for it to be made. It unfortunately doesn’t seem like any progress has been… Continue Reading →

Talk has been up and down over the past couple of years regarding Hellboy 3 and given Guillermo del Toro's busy schedule, Ron Perlman's age and the studio's reluctance to finance an end to the story...it doesn't really feel like a film that's going to happen. However, here we are still talking about it, and more importantly, so are del Toro and Perlman. Speaking with... Read More »

When Hellboy 2: The Golden Army came to a close in 2008, the film ended with something not typically associated with a happy ending: a smiling demon. The movie concludes with Ron Perlman’s wisecracking demon about to become a father when he finds out his girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair) is pregnant with twins. Although that was the last we saw of Hellboy, it has now been revealed that a potential sequel could focus heavily on those twins. In an interview with Empire to discuss his recent performance in the Amazon series Hand of God, conversation with Ron Perlman inevitably turned to the Hellboy franchise. He opened up about where he and director Guillermo del Toro might take the franchise in a future installment, and how they would factor the aforementioned twins into the story. He said: I'll tell you this. The two twins: one would look like the mum »
With two thirds of the trilogy already complete, Perlman hopes to one day conclude the fantasy series with a fitting finale, though financing has long been the straw that broke the camel’s back when it comes to Hellboy 3. Putting the logistics aside for the time being, Perlman indulged in Del Toro’s grand, “amazingly theatrical” vision for the trilogy capper.
More News From The Web
It’s no secret that Perlman has been championing ideas for the sequel via Twitter, with the actor even going so far as to say that he “owes the world” one final outing as the cigar-chomping half-demon. Here, the actor dove horns first into Del Toro’s vision with Empire.

Is Pernell Harris, the crooked judge who suddenly undergoes a religious conversion in Amazon’s Hand of God, losing his mind or tapping into the divine?
It’s a complicated question — and not one that’s answered by the end of the drama’s first episode (which, along with the rest of Season 1, premiered on the streaming video service Friday).

Out doing promotional talk for his new Amazon Studios series "Hand Of God," beloved character actor and former "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman was asked about the possibility of returning to one of his most iconic roles - Hellboy.
Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro has previously indicated he wishes to finish his 'trilogy' of "Hellboy" films and, though he doesn't expect it will go forward, is keen on the idea. Perlman meanwhile has expressed excitement and uncertainty on social media regarding the possibility, and this week spoke with Empire about what might lure him back:
"I really feel as though I'm done with the character. I don't have a burning desire to put that s--t on again. But Guillermo told me what the resolve of the trilogy would look like, in broad strokes, and it's such an amazingly theatrical, cinematic idea, that I found it essential that we do it. »

Between bellowing "don't get up!" as he passed Heat magazine (he was kidding) and talking up his role in new Amazon Studios series Hand Of God, the great Ron Perlman was an absolute hoot when he popped into Empire Towers to record a guest slot on this week’s podcast.But we couldn’t let the man who is Anung Un Rama go without asking him about the state of play on Hellboy III, the hoped-for final instalment of Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of the beloved Mike Mignola comic book series. Hellboy II: The Golden Army came out in 2008, and did fairly well at the box office, but not well enough to greenlight the trilogy-ender right away. And with del Toro filling his dance card with other projects, it seemed like Hellboy had eaten his last pancake.But recently, the project has shown signs of life. Perlman has been »
Drugs, sex and murder don’t make the edgy show Amazon are banking on: instead it’s muddled, maudlin and completely over the top
What’s the name of the show? Hand of God
Is this the Broadway play with the puppets? No, that’s Hand to God.

The star of Hellboy takes a leap of faith with his new drama, in which a deeply troubled small-town judge turns to a particularly unhinged form of spirituality
The guy who played Hellboy, going through hell. That could be the one-line pitch for Hand of God, Amazon’s latest self-funded foray into original drama. After last year’s bleak pilot, the full 10-episode first season is available to righteously binge on from today. It stars deeply furrowed character actor Ron Perlman as a notorious hanging judge in San Vicente, the (fictional) Californian town his ancestors helped establish. But the big man with the gavel has unravelled – his son has been in a coma for seven months and counting, the result of a »

Amazon’s new drama “Hand of God” boasts a stellar cast of veteran and newer actors, yet it fails to compel as it weaves a story of attempted suicide, rape and religious fervor. With a cast including Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy”), Dana Delany (“Body of Proof,” “China Beach”), Garret Dillahunt (“Justified”) Andre Royo (“The Wire”) and Julian Morris (“New Girl”), “Hand of God” is packed with proven talent. Though the pilot episode has calculated moments of high drama, it doesn’t make us care about the recently baptized Judge Pernell Harris (Perlman), his coolly detached wife Crystal (Delany), or his daughter-in-law. »

Despite Hand of God‘s Old Testament-esque title… and the presence of a pastor as one of its main characters… and the fact that its protagonist thinks a higher power is communicating with him via signs and wonders… the new Amazon drama is no holy roller, cast member Garret Dillahunt says.
“It’s oddly not a show about religion as much as it is about man’s interpretation of it, or twisting it to his own ends,” says the Raising Hope alum, who plays Kd, a former white supremacist whose introduction to Christianity hasn’t completely bled him of his violent tendencies. »
"I could actually see somebody like Jeff going, 'You guys need $120m to make Hellboy? I'm down.' This is the reason I keep touting Hellboy 3 because I think there's somebody out there that's going to agree with me, that we need to finish this trilogy," he said.
Perlman offered up a cryptic response when quizzed on what was holding a Hellboy sequel back.
"I won't answer that, because it'll make too many people uncomfortable, and I've already made people uncomfortable enough," he said.

When the Hand Of God pilot went up on Amazon last year, I thought the Ben Watkins written and Marc Foster helmed drama was a work in progress. As my video review above says, the September 4 debut of the whole first season reveals the series to be one of the weakest offerings by the streaming service yet. The 10-episode Hand Of God launches from the premise of a vengeful, vision obsessed and crazed corrupt Judge Pernell Harris played by Ron Perlman, seeking out the man who… »
The con is on at Amazon.
The streaming service has given a series order to Sneaky Pete, a drama from EPs Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and David Shore (House) that stars Giovanni Ribisi as a man who hides from his debtors once he leaves prison — by assuming the identity of a cellmate. Our sister site Deadline broke the news.
Sneaky Pete was originally developed by CBS, but when the Eye network passed on it, Amazon stepped in and aired the pilot last month, »
