It’s been four years since 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, but speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the big red star himself, Ron Perlman, revealed that he and director Guillermo del Toro haven’t given up on a threequel – despite previous reports to the contrary.

“I can say publicly that now we are together in trying [to do Hellboy 3],” said Perlman. “The [first] two movies were really set up to have this unbelievable resolve. Everything that was done in both movies was leading up to this destiny, written in stone, of what Hellboy has been summoned to Earth to do.

“To not do it, particularly in light of the scope that Guillermo is thinking of for the resolve, would be in my mind a little bit of a shame.”

“We’re going to make an effort to do it,” added del Toro. “I hope it happens.”
