You most likely saw the above picture last weekend, from when Ron Perlman got into the Hellboy makeup and costume for a young, terminally-ill Hellboy fan for the Make a Wish foundation. It was easily the most heartwarming this I read this month. I'm not the only one who's warmed his heart thanks to this outpouring of demon spawn-inspiried wish making, though. Guillermo del Toro, who directed the previous two Hellboys, has said the story inspired him to take another stab at finally making Hellboy 3

I’ve encountered a lot of kids who are fans of the movies, but to hear the story of this kid who was watching the movies while going through treatment, it really just moved me a lot...I can say publicly that now we are together in trying [to do Hellboy 3].

Here's hoping Pacific Rim is a big enough hit to jumpstart financial interest in another Hellboy!
