Nothing brings to mind evil like the idea of Nazis. The righteous anger that flows at the mere mention of the name is true, especially in the world of Hellboy. But alongside that is another name that conjures up similar ire and fear: Rasputin. In Mike Mignola‘s Rasputin: The Voice Of The Dragon #1, we witness an allegiance form of the most diabolical sorts.
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.
UPDATE: We’ve learned that the title for the reboot will simply be Hellboy, the same as the original 2004 film.
It’s being reported that Lionsgate is in the final stages of negotiations to distribute the Hellboy reboot, titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.
The movie already has a star and director set. David Harbour, who is one of the stars of Netflix’s Stranger Things, is set to take over the role of Hellboy; while Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) will direct. The original 2004 movie adaptation and its 2008 sequel, Hellboy: The Golden Army, starred Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Blade II) in the title role with Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak) directing.
