Hellboy creator Mike Mignola has dashed hopes that director Guillermo del Toro could one day make a third Hellboy movie.
While talking to the Daily Blam at this weekend’s Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, Mignola said: “Last I heard, he said he would not make it.”
That news shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to del Toro fans, though, with the producer-director’s schedule more jam-packed than ever before.
“Guillermo, who I love, in every interview there's a new story on what his next movie is and he honestly believes he's going to do all these things,” Mignola said.
“But last I heard he said, ‘I'm never gonna get back to Hellboy .’ I'm not surprised because he won't live long enough to do a tenth of the movies he's told me he's going to make.”
Del Toro’s first Hellboy was released in 2004, while a sequel followed in 2008. The director is currently busy working on his PG-13 monster movie Pacific Rim .
That said, del Toro's helped a lot of other directors make their movies by acting as producer, so it wouldn't surprise us if he did the same for Hellboy 3 .
