Ron Perlman reveals he was asked to return in Hellboy reboot
Ron Perlman has announced that he has declined a role in the recent Hellboy restart. The original Big Red revealed that he was asked to play the eponymous antihero, but declined to do so because director Guillermo del Toro was not involved.
"The only thing stopping the third Hellboy film is the fact that Guillermo [del Toro] is one of the busiest people in the business," Perlman told ComicBookMovie.com. “The restart was something I could participate in and I decided that the only version of Hellboy I'm interested in is the one I do with Guillermo. When I moved away from it, I really walked away and haven't seen it or heard much of it. The actor added, "I wish them all the best, but it wasn't in my bailiwick."
It is certainly heartwarming to hear Perlman stand by his long-time employee del Toro after the couple created the cult classic with the Hellboy from 2004 and the sequel to Hellboy II: The Golden Army with great success. Unfortunately, that cannot be said for the 2019 restart led by Neil Marshall. The film was poorly received, and Chris Schilling of Total Film called it "disjointed and messy in every way." While some David Harbor from Stranger Thing give the benefit of the doubt as the lead actor, Hellboy won't be on our list of the best superhero films anytime soon.
If the Oscar winner del Toro's schedule is ever clarified, Perlman may call him and we will reach the finale of a trilogy that is almost two decades in preparation. Although we won't hold our breath, since the director is currently pre-producing five - yes, you read that right: five - projects, including adaptations from Pinnochio and Roald Dahl's The Witches.
Scary stories with morals - he definitely has a guy.
