Hellboy star Ron Perlman says we should expect a wait for the third film in the series... If we ever see it all. (Click the image at left to buy Hellboy II on DVD.)
"No one knows," Perlman tells Bloody-Disgusting. "We know we have (director Guillermo del Toro) over in New Zealand working with Peter Jackson on two Hobbit movies. I, for one, wouldn't want to be involved in any more Hellboy movies unless he was involved in some measure, if he was at least overseeing what the third movie was going to look like. The studio doesn't talk to me or my people for that matter. I can't give you any updates."
Hellboy II was successful but not exactly a blockbuster, and Perlman suggests the film's chances for a sequel will depend on what happens after the studio adds up all the earnings from DVDs, cable rights, etc.
"I think that the dust is finally settling from Hellboy II now that the DVD has been released and its getting ready to do its cable run. I guess they'll just look at everything and decide. It would be a shame if we didn't do a third one because its so set up for it. Everything was building towards this culmination. But, you know, life takes some strange turns, my friend."
