Awhile back we reported on a Guillermo Del Toro interview where Del Toro said Hellboy 3 wasn’t filming yet because Ron Perlman didn’t want to sit for six or seven hours in a makeup chair every day when he doesn’t have to deal with that to star in the awesomely-badass “Sons of Anarchy”. Perlman tells a different story in a long interview at io9. After discussing Season of the Witch and Del Toro’s upcoming H.P. Lovecraft adaptation At The Mountains of Madness, Perlman talked about Hellboy 3:
How can we convince you to sit through 7 hours of make up every day to make Hellboy 3?
All you have to do is convince to Guillermo to say yes to making the movie.
That’s funny, because whenever people ask Guillermo when he’s going to make Hellboy 3 he always says that we have to convince you!
Yeah he’s blaming me and I’m blaming him. I know it’s kind of like Laurel and Hardy, Martin and Lewis, or Abbott and Costello. Hellboy 2 was not an easy shoot. Both of us walked away very tired and very beat up. But a lot of time [has passed] and lot of water has gone under the bridge, I’m well healed — and just knowing what his idea was for the third installment of the trilogy and how epic and theatrical and powerful a film it would be, it’s got to be made. I really feel like its got to be made. It would be a great disservice to the first two films if you don’t see how they wind up.
He went on to say the third movie would show Hellboy facing his destiny as a destroyer of mankind, and (this shouldn’t be a spoiler after this much time has passed) we’ll get to see if those twins Liz is carrying grow horns and start fires. (Don’t all babies do that? Little bastards.) You can read that whole interview at io9. After the jump is the audio from another interview with Perlman: his great, candid, swear-word-filled appearance yesterday on the Opie and Anthony Show. Bonus: Louis CK was also in studio. If I could just listen to this clip while being massaged by a unicorn, all my dreams would come true.
