Speaking to Latino-Review, director Guillermo del Toro revealed that all is not well with his proposed Hellboy threequel, saying, “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,” del Toro continued. “The two movies made their money back and a little bit. They were financially good, but one was 50 and the other one was 80, 85. This is a 140. So no one wants to do that leap, from the financial side. So unless we find a way to do the mother of all KickStarters.”
