HELLBOY has become something that fans have really latched onto. From graphic novels, to the big screen, the character is most certainly a staple in entertainment.
Back in February we learned that a third HELLBOY film would Not be happening with Guillermo del Toro as director and Ron Perlman as the titular character.
The HELLBOY reboot is directed by Neil Marshall and starring in the titular role is STRANGER THINGS’ own David Harbour. HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD QUEEN was the working title, but we learned not long ago that the film will simply be called HELLBOY.
The official date of release for HELLBOY has been announced and it is scheduled to arrive into theaters on January 11th, 2019.
Joining David Harbour in the cast are Ian McShane, Sophie Okonedo, Alistair Petrie, Brian Gleeson, Sasha Lane, Penelope Mitchell, Daniel Dae Kim, and Milla Jovovich. The film started shooting this past September in the UK and Bulgaria.
“Hellboy, along with his team of paranormal researchers, trying to save the world from a medieval sorceress who wants to destroy humankind.”
David Harbour previously spoke about reboot saying:
“It’s a whole new thing. I’d always been a fan of the comics and there’s a darker tone to it and I think in the climate we have now there’s kind of a darker… a desire for more of that… the script is good and this guy Neil Marshall is directing who’s really good and the aesthetic is great.”
Harbour then spoke of the Hellboy character:
“It’s a character that I love, and sort of in the way, I think Mike [Mignola] and a bunch of other people saw me in ‘Stranger Things’ and wanted me to play Hellboy and I think he has some parallels to him. I think he’s another complicated anti-hero who is not strictly good or bad, he’s just trying to do the right thing. I think he’s a demon, he’s crazy, and he’s also sweet and vulnerable and neurotic […] so there’s a lot of complexity there.”
“So often, the superhero movies can be really fun and I want this to be really fun, but I also want it to be more of a character piece and more about this dude’s struggle. I think it could be interesting. I don’t know, I just hope we make a good movie. We’ll see. You be the judge!"
The script was written by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. Darkhorse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson will be producing.
HELLBOY will be rated R and will arrive into theaters on January 11th 2019.
