Hellboy 3 Might Be Underway Thanks to One Boy’s Wish

For those who hadn’t heard yet, Ron Perlman recently donned his Hellboy makeup... but it wasn’t to walk onto a film set. It was to spend the day with a boy named Zachary, a six-year-old who had told the Make A Wish Foundation that he wanted to meet the big red guy. That story alone was enough to warm our hearts.

It was also enough to warm Guillermo del Toro’s.

While the Hellboy director has avoided talk of a third film for the past four years, it seems that Perlman’s encounter with Zachary has moved him to action; he has just announced that plans to make Hellboy 3 are now underway. None of the permissions are set, but this is incredible news nonetheless. And we don’t mean because we’re all excited to see how it ends (though of course, we are). What’s incredible is knowing that one little boy’s love made all the difference.

Well done for the Make a Wish Foundation for making this boy's dream come true, it really is heart-warming! If it helps our dream of seeing Hellboy 3 a reality, all the better!

I don't know weather this is great we get to see Hellboy 3 or that its sad that the kid who inspired this may not get to see it. Never have I been so conflicted.

I think this is wonderful. Make A Wish Foundation and other similar organisations are fantastic and don't get no where near the recognition they deserve. I loved the Hell Boy movies and to see them reginited because of one boys wish is beautiful and heart-warming. Bring on Hell Boy 3!

This makes me so happy! Whatever they do, I hope they use the Baba Yaga as the villain!

I'm glad that Ron Perlman did that for the boy, I adore the movies (as does my mom).
I guess I'm too old for Make a Wish, but, hey, I've survived 44 brain surgeries, it would kinda be fun to meet Hell Boy!
(this is not a lie, folks, I'm for real)

This comment may be a little late, But this little boy has touched many including myself. Anything he could have asked for, anything at all, and this was his choice. I pray that he is still with us and wish the best for him. As for the movie? The first two were done very well, I'm sure the third will be just as great. A boy and a small request to warm his heart may turn into a mutimillion dollar project.....I love it!
