Ron Perlman: 'Hellboy 3 will probably never happen'

Ron Perlman has admitted that 'Hellboy 3' will "probably never happen".

Although the 65-year-old actor has advocated for a third movie in the comic-book series, he now appears to have come to terms with the idea that it might never become a reality.

Speaking at the Guadalajara Festival in Mexico, Ron said that 'Hellboy 3' will "probably will never happen, though you never say never never".

Ron's comments are surprising as he has previously insisted he, director Guillermo del Toro and the cast and crew owed a third movie, featuring the devil-horned hero, to fans.

He has said: "Let me make the record clear. I don't want to do 'Hellboy 3'. It's a pain in the ass to put that makeup on and take it off. But I feel we're obligated to finish the story. That's it. End of conversation."

And he has also insisted that he was happy to "force the conversation".

He said: "I got no problems with forcing the conversation, as you can tell. We're in the business of moving mountains. Those of us who are used to working in mainstream film and television. Don't come to me with details and problems. Just tell me how we move the mountain."
