Director Guillermo Del Toro Sadly Confirms That HELLBOY 3 Is Officially Dead

Director Guillermo Del Toro Sadly Confirms That HELLBOY 3 Is Officially Dead

Last we heard, director Guillermo del Toro was attempting to drum up some interest in his long-gestating Hellboy sequel, but it appears as though his efforts may have been for naught. Come take a look.

After spending the better part of the last decade in development hell, there was finally some movement on the Hellboy 3 front very recently when director Guillermo del Toro held an impromptu poll on Twitter, with the intention of gauging fan interest in the long-gestating sequel. And, while the poll was a resounding success, with over 130,000 participants, and the results being a near-unanimous "Yes," it appears as though del Toro's talks with the higher-ups didn't exactly pan out like he'd hoped. 

Just moments ago, the Academy Award-nominated director took to Twitter to sadly inform fans that the long-awaited sequel to 2004's Hellboy and 2008's Hellboy: The Golden Army is not going to happen at any time in the future and that it'll be the last thing he ever says about it. 

A reason for the disappointing turn of events wasn't provided, but it's not a stretch to assume the studio may have deemed the project too risky of an endeavor, with the potential box office turnout being a likely concern as the previous two installments both failed to double their budgets. Shortly after del Toro's announcement, the film's star Ron Perlman (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) offered his own take, in a much more light-hearted manner.
