It looks like good week for fans of Hellboy, with Ron Perlman talking about his return to the red devil-suit in “Hellboy III.” In a recent podcast, Perlman has described Guillermo Del Toro’s idea for the new film, and it sounds like the most radical thing ever. Read on to find out more.
In a recent interview with Empire Online, Perlman described Del Toro’s plans to update the series with a new film using the words “F*cked up,” When asked to elaborate the loquacious Perlman offered a “Holy Sh*t” before saying,
“He’s the beast of the Apocalypse. He has to take down civilisation. He has to. It’s non-negotiable. That’s the foundation for the story, and that’s why I think it would be a shame if we don’t do it.” Perlman said.
The 65-year-old actor also offered more details on the storyline for “Hellboy III.” It apparently continues right where “Hellboy II” left off, in the great-beast-of-apocalypse grinning at the news of his girlfriend, “Liz Sherman” pregnant.
“I’ll tell you this,” Perlman teased. “The two twins: one would look like the mum and one would look like the dad. And one of them was going to be completely fucking corrupt, the other one angelic. Which one was which? Only Guillermo would make the fucked-up-looking one be the angel. So then that adds to the saga.”
Holy sh*t, indeed. Guillermo Del Toro, who has made diverse movies like the fantastic “Pan’s Labyrinth” and the horrifying (but still fantastic) “The Orphanage,” is of course the perfect person to helm this project. Perlman has recently been tweeting more and more about ‘Hellboy’, recently we are really hoping the project gets greenlit by the studio.
