With Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) and stars Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnan, Ron Pearlman and more out doing press, questions about “Hellboy 3” have come up. Rumors are that Legendary is trying to acquire the rights to the film and here’s what Pearlman had to say about the third film in the trilogy to ShockTillYouDrop:

“[Hellboy 3] needs to be twice as big as Hellboy 1 or Hellboy 2. It’s all of these oracles coming home to roost with these apocalyptic things taking place,” Perlman said. “Guillermo’s version of this resolve in the trilogy is epic in scope. Not just anybody can make this movie. It has to be somebody who’s no stranger to this sense of scope.”

Perlman went on to add: “For me to do Hellboy 3, it could kill me – in terms of physically demanding, for a guy my age, but it’s worth it because anyone who sits and listens to Guillermo’s version of how this thing ends is completely seduced. It’s so theatrical and compelling and if you liked the first two movies in any way, shape or form, this is the ultimate one-two punch.”
