Though neither film was a box office smash, the two Hellboy films soon picked up a strong following and I loved them myself. A possible third film has been mentioned several times and director Guillermo Del Toro and star Ron Perlman were obviously both well up for it. However, Del Toro tweated yesterday:

Hellboy 3 Sorry to report: Spoke with all parties. Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about it”.

Which does sound very final indeed. However, soon after that Hellboy creator Mike Mignola tweeted:

“No GDT Hellboy 3 does not mean there is no future to the Hellboy franchise”.

So it’s possible that he wanted to take the franchise in a different direction to what Del Toro wanted, and Del Toro walked. Who knows? I’m sure all will become clear in due course. If a sequel does go ahead, Perlman doesn’t want any part of it, tweeting:

“That’s true Mike. Just No”.

So if we do get anything it’ll be without Del Toro and Perlman, which has put me off for a start. I wouldn’t be surprised if a TV series will be considered though….

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
