Ron Perlman Talks HELLBOY 3 Story - Says It Is Mind Blowing!
Ron Perlman recently went on to say that the story for Hellboy 3 (Hellboy III) is mind blowing. The entire story is in director Guillermo del Toro‘s mind and del Toro has discussed much of it with Perlman for Perlman to warrant it “Mind Blowing!” Ron Perlman is rallying the Hellboy fans and now it is all up to the studios and del Toro to sit down and flesh things out. The biggest issue here is that del Toro has so many things going on right now that he literally has no time. We know the fans want to see the Hellboy trilogy end the proper way and del Toro plus Ron Perlman are psyched to do it BUT there is only so much del Toro can do as ONE man in the horror industry at-a-time. It WILL happen, just WHEN is the issue.
CW's Hawkgirl Season 1 in Development!?
CW is reportedly in early development stages for a Hawkgirl TV series. Hawkgirl was teased in The Flash season 2 finale and later shown in CW’s Legends of Tomorrow TV series trailer. Ciara Renee will star as Hawkgirl once the Hawkgirl TV series becomes official. The character’s “real” name is Kendra Saunders and is being described as a young woman who has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. To me, this all sound fantastic and there is so much you can do with a character like this.

James Wan Producing LIGHTS OUT Feature Film
James Wan will be producing the full feature film adaptation based on David F. Sandberg‘s excellent horror short Lights Out. Lights Out is a very creepy horror short that became a Vimeo Staff Pick rather quickly. The horror short was created for the Who’s There Film Challenge 2013. The film adaptation will be written by Eric A. Heisserer with David F. Sandberg set to direct and Gabriel Bateman set to star. The horror film will be about “a supernatural entity attacking a family, with one of the members required to step up to protect them from a threat that can be seen only when the lights go out.”
