Remember when Ron Perlman donned the Hellboy makeup and costume to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation?  Of course you do, we still have tears in our eyes.  Turns out, that little moment moved director Guillermo del Toro to reconsider his No More Hellboy Movies stance.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly del Toro said, “I’ve encountered a lot of kids who are fans of the movies,v but to hear the story of this kid who was watching the movies while going through treatment, it really just moved me a lot.”

Before you starting wetting yourself over the news, keep in mind that del Toro has not approached Mike Mignola or the studio, so things might still disappear into the vapor, but this is a perfect example of what happens when you do good things for a good cause.

    Guillermo and Ron were interviewed on G4 today while at SDCC, but they only talked about Pacific Rim (and unfortunately, they didn’t even reveal much about it, although Charlie Hunnam said they showed some finished footage of it at their panel earlier in the day, so that should be on YouTube any minute now). It got me wondering if there’d be another Hellboy movie, particularly since The Golden Army seemed to be better received than the original, both commercially & critically. That having been said, Del Toro mentions a new movie project he’d like to do just about every other day, and as tireless as that guy is, even he can’t make them all, so, as you say, I’m not holding my breath about it.
