Last month Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman announced that there sadly won’t be a third Hellboy film after all. Now, creator Mike Mignola has taken to Facebook to announce an R-rated Hellboy reboot.
Hellboy creator Mike Mignola has officially announced a Hellboy reboot directed by Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall, with Stranger Things’ David Harbour in the starring role. David Harbour’s name has been showing up a lot lately. He was also rumoured for Cable in Deadpool 2. Perhaps he chose this role instead.
THR has also confirmed that the working title for the film will be Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, with a script written by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman will sadly not be involved.
Hellboy is the child of the demon Azzael and the witch Sarah Hughes, a former B.P.R.D. agent and the unwilling Harbinger of the Apocalypse, Anung Un Rama.
