Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy films were an under-appreciated adaptation of the comic books of the same name. While they’ve become cult classics, the film franchise has since shifted to a new studio. Rather than building upon the existing movies having Ron Perlman return as the title character, Lionsgate went with a reboot. This time, David Harbour (Stranger Things) will be playing the title character in a film that adapts the source material with an even darker and more grittier tone.
Filled with all kinds of violence and profanity, this new telling of Hellboy isn’t the one that GDT told. Which may be fine. But we will just have to wait and see. Check out the latest trailer for the upcoming film here below.
The Hellboy reboot has found its Blood Queen. It’s being reported that Milla Jovovich is in final talks to take on the role. The movie was originally said to be titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, but it appears now that they may not be using that subtitle anymore.
Jovovich joins Stranger Things star David Harbour and Deadwood and American Gods star Ian McShane on the cast.
Another actor has signed on to star in the Hellboy reboot, titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, as it’s been announced that Deadwood and American Gods star Ian McShane has joined the cast.
The actor is set to play Professor Broom, the adoptive father of Hellboy. The character was played by the late, great John Hurt in 2004’s Hellboy and 2008’s Hellboy: The Golden Army, both directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Perlman in the title role.
