A new “Hellboy” movie is in the works!
Now that we have the good news out of the way, we have some bad news for you – director Guillermo del Toro and star Ron Perlman won’t be coming back for the reboot.
Instead, we have David Harbour, who plays Chief Jim Hopper in “Stranger Things”, in talks to star. “Game of Thrones” and “The Descent” director Neil Marshall is also attached as director, with sources telling Variety that Millennium Films is currently in negotiations to produce the film.
The news was revealed by Mike Mignola, the comic book artiste who created the character “Hellboy”. In his Facebook post this morning (Tuesday, 9th May), he also explained that it will be an R-rated reboot.
The “Hellboy” comics were started by Mignola in 1993 and tells the tale of a well-meaning demon by the name of Anung Un Rama.
It spawned a movie adaptation in 2004 with a sequel in 2008 titled “Hellboy II: The Golden Army”. Perlman starred as the superhero in both installments with del Toro at its helm. However, last year, Perlman shot down rumours of a 3rd movie, saying that “Hellboy 3” “probably will never happen”.
