Ron Perlman’s single-minded quest to get Hellboy 3 off the ground continues, this time in an interview with Digital Spy in which the actor talked more about what roadblocks the movie is facing and what fans can expect if the series ever gets its final chapter:

I could actually see somebody like [Amazon CEO] Jeff [Bezos] going, ‘You guys need $120m to make Hellboy? I’m down.’ This is the reason I keep touting Hellboy 3 because I think there’s somebody out there that’s going to agree with me, that we need to finish this trilogy. I won’t answer that [who is holding it up], because it’ll make too many people uncomfortable, and I’ve already made people uncomfortable enough.

If you look at the numbers we did, we’re not a blockbuster – we’re not Iron Man, we’re not the Marvel movies, we’re not one of these movies that made half a billion dollars worldwide. That’s a mandate. We don’t have a mandate to do Hellboy 3. All we have is a modest amount of enthusiasm and that’s just not enough in today’s marketplace. That’s not the answer [I was referring to before] but we’ll use that for now – as a placeholder – until the real thing comes along!

What do you think, gang? Do you still have hope that Jeff Bezos or someone else will decide to raise hell?
