Director Guillermo del Toro recently said that the Hellboy 3 movie we’ve been waiting for is more or less dead because there’s no studio willing to finance… So dead that he even ventured to give away some new plot details of what would have been the focus of the film:

“The idea for Hellboy 3was to have Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the beast of the Apocalypse, and having him and Liz face the sort of, that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically vanquish the foe that he has to face in the 3rd film. He has to become the beast of the Apocalypse to be able to defend humanity, but at the same time he becomes a much darker being. It’s a very interesting ending to the series, but I don’t think it will happen.”

I kind of suspect though that he spilled the beans no only to tease fans but also to revive interest in the project… What do you think? Is there any hope left for a Hellboy 3 movie?
