At times, the filmmaker feels like the Hollywood equivalent of The Fast Show's Unlucky Alf - frequently attaching himself to fanboy-friendly properties before seeing them vanish into the wind. We take a look back at the multiple del Toro projects that never made it to the starting line below.
The flip side of the regular, primary colours Justice League heroes, DC Comics' Dark united such disparate characters as Deadman, Zatanna, John Constantine and Swamp Thing. Del Toro penned a script for the film but reportedly dropped out to focus on Crimson Peak and Pacific Rim 2.
Warner Bros has a "dark and gritty" mandate for its comic-to-movie properties, leading many to believe that »
Since his role in the blockbusting ensemble piece The Expendables, Dolph Lundgren has been somewhat of a tour-de-force in the world of direct-to-market action flicks. From straight forward action movies like Hard Rush and A Certain Justice, to more fantastical films such Battle of the Damned and Legendary, Lundgren has been tolling away in the genre starring in films that, whilst not all are entirely successful, are ways apart from his pre-Expendables career.
The reason for his recent success, in this reviewers opinion, seems to be his willingness to share the limelight. Where once he may have demanded the mot screen time, a headline on the poster etc., these days his films are more about the ensembles within them. He’s starred alongside the likes of Vinnie Jones, Randy Couture, Cung Le (an underrated action star »

Guillermo del Toro always has several projects lined up, whether he's producing or directing there is never a shortage of titles he may or may not tackle. One such title many were looking forward to seeing was whatever he had planned for Justice League Dark, centered on characters such as John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Demon, Deadman and Zatanna. However, THR now reports del Toro has exited the project. It's a shame really as it would have added a nice bit of variety to superhero cinema, but as I said del Toro has more than enough on his plate. He's currently finishing up Crimson Peak for an Oct. 16 release and after that he has Pacific Rim 2, which is slotted for an Aug. 4, 2017 release. However, while del Toro has pretty much squashed the chances of a Hellboy 3 in the past, star Ron Perlman hasn't given up hope, recently campaigning on »

Over the past few weeks, Ron Perlman has been actively lobbying fans to get behind him in support of Hellboy III [read what he had to say here, here and here], and now the star has taken to Instagram with a rather intriguing post which appears to suggest that the long-awaited sequel is moving ahead…
Director Guillermo del Toro has previously revealed that he tried – and failed – to secure financing for Hellboy III, stating back in July of last year that he didn’t believe it would happen. However, assuming Perlman isn’t just toying with fans, it certainly sounds like some sort of deal may have been reached.
What do you think? Has Perlman revealed that Hellboy III is happening, or is he just continuing his crusade to push for the movie? Let us know in the comments below…

A few weeks ago actor Ron Perlman spoke about the possibility of a third film in Guillermo del Toro's supernatural action series "Hellboy," a film that would essentially close off the series. It seemed highly unlikely, but Perlman attempted to rally support for the project on social media.
A new Instagram posting today from him suggests it may have worked, the actor posting a photo of Hellboy and saying: "Lurking… Waiting… And then, poof… One more Roman numeral after the name… As if by magic."
Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Back on June 3rd, Ron Perlman wrote a simple Tweet. It read "Anybody out there wanna see #HellboyIII as much as I do? Let's get this muthafucka trending, y'all! Let's end the trilogy; we earned it!".
It would be fair to say that it got a response. In the days that followed, Hellboy III chatter was not in short supply, and hopes were raised that the trilogy would get its long-waited final chapter.
We've been waiting some time, after all. Hellboy II was released back in 2008, and both Perlman and director Guillermo del Toro have at differing times hinted that a Hellboy III was in the offing. We've just never seemingly got close to it.
With a bit of luck, Perlman has lit the touchpaper. "I found »
Earlier this month, Ron Perlman encouraged fans to take to social media in an effort to help get the long-rumoured third instalment of the Hellboy franchise off the ground, and now Perlman has offered up a few more words on Hellboy III during an interview with Variety, stating that “it’s something we owe the fans.”
“I’ll tell you the same thing I’ve been telling everyone else, the Hellboy saga was meant to have a beginning, a middle and an end, and that, if you were loyal enough to us where you came and watched both those two movies that we made, we owe you a resolve. And there will come a time where he will have to live up to his destiny, which is to be the beast of the apocalypse, or if he has to suppress that destiny by sacrificing himself in some way so as »

It's been seven years since Hellboy II: The Golden Army was released, and fans have been left waiting for that elusive third movie. One man who's never given up hope is Hellboy lead Ron Perlman, who recently seized headlines by rallying fan support for Hellboy III on social media. Ultimately, Perlman's stunt was a bigger success than he could have ever imagined. The veteran actor revealed to Variety how things quickly spun out of his control: "The discussion has now overtaken me rather than me overtaking the discussion. And here I am in Monte Carlo, working on my suntan, and people are still asking me about “Hellboy III,” so I guess it’s still news. But I’ll tell you the same thing I’ve been telling everyone else, the Hellboy saga was meant to have a beginning, a middle and an end... we owe you a resolve." "There will »
Variety sat with Ron Perlman at the Monte Carlo TV festival, where he served as president of the 55th edition and prexy of the miniseries jury. The veteran actor candidly talked about his upcoming Amazon show, “Hand of God,” a thriller drama helmed by “World War Z'”s Marc Forster and his endeavor to produce and direct movies through his shingle Wing & a Prayer Pictures and Film House, a studio that will soon launch, backed by the State of New York and Suny Polytechnic College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. Perlman, who is now repped by Empire Agency in Europe, also revealed he will make his directorial debut with “Wooden Lake,” a small indie drama that will lense in Syracuse.

After galvanizing fans to action with a series of tweets a couple of weeks ago, actor Ron Perlman has backtracked a little in his attempts to push forward with Hellboy 3. Though Perlman has made no secret of his desire to again play the endearingly foul-mouthed, cigar-chomping hell-spawn affectionately known as Big Red (and neither have we), the actor is now clarifying that making the movie is his, director Guillermo del Toro’s and the studio’s responsibility – not the fans’.
Speaking with Digital Spy, the star admitted to being “very, very surprised” by the huge fan reaction to his tweets, which included the following call to arms: “Anybody out there wanna see #HellboyIII as much as I do? Let’s get this muthafucka trending, y’all!” When Hellboy‘s loyal legion of followers indeed got that muthafucka trending, Perlman was rather gobsmacked. “I just sent it out like I »

23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
