Guillermo Del Toro Reveals His Epic and ‘Unlikely’ Plan For ‘Hellboy 3′

As much as fans want to see it happen, Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy 3 looks unlikely to ever see the light of day. The mastermind behind Pacific Rim and The Strain shot down the likelihood of a third Hellboy film during a Reddit AMA, saying he’s done everything he can to secure a budget for the epic sequel.

“It’s very unlikely it’ll happen because you need things to converge so strongly,” he said. “[Producer] Larry Gordon, Universal, the rights, Ron [Perlman's] and mine’s availability, [comic creator] Mike [Mignola's] blessing; we have pieces of that, but we don’t have all of that. You need so many things to confluence and then you need about $150 million.”

It’s a shame, too, because del Toro’s ideas for the third film’s story sound rock solid, especially given everything that was established in the first two Hellboy movies.

“The idea for it was to have Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the Beast of the Apocalypse,”del Toro said. “And having him and Liz face the sort of, that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically vanquish the foe that he has to face in the third film. He has to become the beast of the Apocalypse to be able to defend humanity, but at the same time he becomes a much darker being. It’s a very interesting ending to the series, but I don’t think it will happen.”

At least del Toro has one lucky sequel in his future: Pacific Rim 2, slated for a spring 2017 release.
