Hellboy creator Mike Mignola says Guillermo del Toro will not direct Hellboy 3
Posted by: Zack Bruce
Fans of HELLBOY might be disappointed to hear that a third movie with Guillermo del Toro isn’t likely. During comic creator Mike Mingola’s panel at the 2011 Calgary Comic Expo, the artist/writer seemed quite sure that the director would not do another film for the series.
This is what he had to say on the subject, “Last I heard he said he would not make it. 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. 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.”
Mignola continued, “I can’t imagine him (Del Toro) making a Hellboy 3. He’s very enthusiastic and says he’s going to do all these things….ummm….he’s cute [laughed].”
He’s got a point. Del Toro is always trying to do as much as he can to keep the creative juices flowing. Next up for the helmer will be PACIFIC RIM. Who knows at this moment if a third HELLBOY film will develop without del Toro, but it isn’t likely.
