Hope For HELLBOY 3 Dying After Lack Of Financial Backing
A while ago Guillermo del Toro said that he was hoping to complete his Hellboy trilogy after a make a wish request by Ron Pearlman renewed interest in the project. However, due to no one wanting to back the film financially its not looking like the film will get made.
Ever since Hellboy 2 came out fans have been clamoring for a third film to complete the trilogy, but work on a third one never manifested. Ron Pearlman renewed the faith that it might get done though when he put on the Hellboy make up for a Make-A-Wish project. That gesture inspired director Guillermo del Toro to get on the horn and see if something can be done to get the project going. However, we might have just been dealt a crushing blow when del Torro told the folks at Latino Review the following, "Well, a couple of weeks ago or months ago, I did make a couple of phone calls to test, to gage the possibility of doing that because it’s a big movie. There’s no takers for a movie of that size. The two movies made their money back and a little bit. They were financially good, but one was fifty and the other one was eighty, eighty five. This is a hundred and forty. So no one wants to do that leap, from the financial side. So unless we find a way to do the mother of all kick starters." Both del Torro, as well as Selma Blair voiced their desire to do the film, but it looks like with out any investment company will to take a leap of faith the project will stay grounded.
