7 July 2017 2:22 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Guillermo del Toro kept the flame for a third Hellboy alive for many years, even organizing a sit-down between Ron Perlman and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola in a last-ditch effort to see what could be done to revive the franchise. Unfortunately, Guillermo del Toro's dream of Hellboy 3 died that day and it was later announced that the franchise would be rebooted. While speaking with... Read More »

Hellboy Reboot Is Heading to Lionsgate?

5 July 2017 5:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been less than two months since the new Hellboy reboot was announced, with Stranger Things star David Harbour taking over the title role and Neil Marshall directing. Now the project may have a studio home. A new report reveals that Lionsgate is in negotiations to distribute this latest entry in the franchise, and while a studio source has confirmed that negotiations are in fact under way, a deal hasn't been closed at this time. This would be the third studio to take over the franchise in as many movies, but it could very well be the right fit for this material.

Splash Report broke the news on Hellboy finding a new home today, although it isn't clear when this deal may be finalized. Many fans were excited when Hellboy creator Mike Mignola confirmed that this will in fact be an R-rated Hellboy reboot, with director Neil Marshall revealing that »

‘Hellboy’ Reboot Starring David Harbour to Land at Lionsgate

Lionsgate is in advanced negotiations to distribute the reboot of “Hellboy.” The new film, with the working title “Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen,” stars “Stranger Things” headliner David Harbour as the title character, a demonic superhero first played by Ron Perlman in Guillermo del Toro’s 2004 original movie. In April, “Hellboy” comic-book creator Mike Mignola announced plans for an R-rated reboot of the franchise with Neil Marshall (“The Descent”) attached to direct. Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Mignola are writing the script, a departure from Del Toro’s “Hellboy” and its 2008 sequel, “Hellboy II: The Golden Army.” The project is expected to. »

Newswire: Neil Marshall says his Hellboy will be R-rated and full of practical effects

28 June 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Guillermo Del Toro’s two Hellboy movies weren’t exactly Phantom Menace-style showcases for the latest advancements in CG technology, but Hellboy reboot director Neil Marshall is still making it a point to reassure fans that his movie will have plenty of old-school practical effects. Marshall offered that tidbit on a recent episode of the Post Mortem podcast (via Bloody Disgusting), adding, “I love to do stuff in camera whenever I possibly can and use CG as the amazing tool that it is, to enhance or expand upon the world,” but he doesn’t like using CG to “replace reality.” Hopefully that means that new Hellboy star David Harbour will be covered in layers of bright red prosthetics like old Hellboy Ron Perlman, since that’s a much cooler look than simply using the actor as a stand-in for some cartoon monster. Who knows, maybe that was one of »

Hellboy reboot director Neil Marshall reveals an the film will be an R-Rated outing

28 June 2017 5:19 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Director of the forthcoming Hellboy reboot, Neil Marshall in a recent podcast conversation with Post Mortem has revealed the extent of the direction HellBoy: Rise of the Blood Queen will take.

Marshall seems to have let out a sigh of relief as he revealed “the cuffs are off” showing signs that he has been given somewhat of a free reign on the production and after the success of the R-Rated Deadpool, this is something we can look forward to in the reboot.

“We’ve been granted permission to do it R-rated, which for me is just like taking the cuffs off. It’s like, okay, so now we can just make the movie we want to make. Nobody’s going to stop us. So, that’s the main (difference). And I’m sure, obviously, the success of things like Deadpool and Logan have not hurt that cause. »

R-Rated Hellboy Reboot Will Be a Very Bloody Affair

27 June 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hellboy reboot director Neil Marshall (The Descent) has been talking about the upcoming movie's R-rating allowing him to "take off the cuffs" while adapting the popular comic book series. The original comic was written and illustrated by Mike Mignola and later turned into two successful big screen adaptations by Guillermo del Toro, starring Ron Perlman. Originally del Toro announced that he was working on a third movie, but it ultimately did not come into fruition and the R-rated reboot was announced earlier this year.

Neil Marshall was recently on Mick Garris's Post Mortem podcast where he spoke of the freedom that an R-rating allows him on Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. Marshall explains.

"We've been granted permission to do it R-rated, which for me is just like taking the cuffs off. It's like okay, so now we can just make the movie we want to make."

Newswire: The only gig Guillermo Del Toro regrets turning down is a Harry Potter movie

26 June 2017 1:19 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Guillermo Del Toro’s cinematic comings and goings (mostly the latter, these days) are a subject of constant discourse and vigil here at The A.V. Club. For example, when Legendary passes on both the director and his Pacific Rim 2 script, we have to wonder how invested we are in a sequel without the creator of that kaijus-and-robots world (okay, so John Boyega buoyed our interest a bit). And when Del Toro and Ron Perlman give up on Hellboy 3, we die a little inside as we prepare another marker for the graveyard of the director’s projects. That’s why we greeted the news that Del Toro turned down a Harry Potter directing gig with a mixture of grief and relief—you know, because at least that time, it was his choice, and not the result of some shadowy forces working against him.

Guillermo del Toro Reveals the One Movie He Wishes He Hadn’t Turned Down — Watch

25 June 2017 11:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For every movie Guillermo del Toro makes, there are two or three that he doesn’t. That’s just one topic the Mexican auteur touched on during a 90-minute masterclass at the animation-themed Annecy Festival, which found him in self-deprecating mode: “My statistics are very bad,” he said. “I have written 24 screenplays. I’ve made 10 movies.”

That just makes those that do get made all the more special, however: “Every movie I have made was made because I would die to have it made.” He’s done more than just features, of course, including creating the Netflix show “Trollhunters” — an experience del Toro speaks highly of.

“They put out the show we made,” he said of working with the streaming giant. “I’ve made movies that are sold as exactly the opposite of what they were. The show »

Health Care Protest: When Will the Left Stop Posting False Mitch McConnell Polio Meme?

23 June 2017 2:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A meme claiming Mitch McConnell received government-funded health care as a child has been gaining traction on the left despite being false. “As a kid, Mitch McConnell had polio, and the government paid for All of his care and rehabilitation,” the image, posted by the Facebook group Occupy Democrats. “Now, as the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, McConnell is taking government-funded care away from tens of millions of Americans. Let that sink in.” The image has since spread across social media, and was shared on Twitter by “Hand of God” star Ron Perlman, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump. »

The Book of Life 2 announced, teaser poster released

17 June 2017 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that Reel FX Creative Studios is reteaming with director Jorge R. Gutierrez for a sequel to The Book of Life, the 2014 animated feature about a Mexican bullfighter who embarks on an adventure in the afterlife as he looks to fulfil the expectations of his family and friends. Check out the teaser poster artwork here…

“The sequel grew from that and people asking what was gonna happen with the characters, what’s gonna happen to the gods?” said Gutierrez. “The sequel embraces all these things and, in a weird way, is a continuation of the story with everybody you love from the first movie. I am a big fan of romantic movies. I always want to find out what happens afterwards. That’s one question we will ask during the sequel.”

What Guillermo Del Toro Really Thinks of the Hellboy Reboot

14 June 2017 4:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After more than seven years of speculation, director Guillermo del Toro revealed in February that his quest to make Hellboy 3 has ended, declaring the project officially dead. While they were not exactly box office juggernauts, 2004's Hellboy and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army, which both starred Ron Perlman as the title character, gained a fervent fan base, who were clamoring for a third and final installment to round out the trilogy. Last month, it was revealed that a reboot is in the works, with Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) directing and David Harbour (Stranger Things) portraying the title character. Guillermo del Toro recently revealed that he has no ill will towards this reboot.

The original Hellboy movie came out in 2004, which was beloved by fans and critics (81% on Rotten Tomatoes) alike, but it didn't make a huge dent at the box office. The adaptation of Mike Mingolla's »

TV Rewind: The 9 Shows That Defined 1990, From ‘Twin Peaks’ to ‘Wings’

14 June 2017 1:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The year 1990 was the beginning of a new decade that just had survived the neon excesses of the ’80s. This fresh start was seen in the world at large with the reunification of Germany, the unification of Yemen, the release of Nelson Mandela and the resignation of Margaret Thatcher as the U.K.’s prime minister.

It was also the fledgling days of the internet, when the first web server was created, providing a foundation for the World Wide Web as we know it.

Character-Driven Hellboy Revival Has Guillermo Del Toro’s Blessing

14 June 2017 6:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For an awful long time, it looked certain that Guillermo del Toro would be the one to summon forth a new Hellboy film, one that would place Ron Perlman in the title role for a third (and perhaps final?) time.

Sadly, that wasn’t to be. Between them, del Toro and his frequent collaborator Ron Perlman engineered two cult classics in Hellboy and its somewhat divisive sequel, The Golden Army, and despite a long, meandering campaign staged by the IP’s impassioned fanbase, both director and star walked away from the supernatural series after a last-ditch meeting with franchise mastermind Mike Magnolia yielded no feasible options for a future instalment. It looked to be the last nail in the coffin, but just when you thought Hellboy had been banished once and for all, Neil Marshall and Stranger Things actor David Harbour swooped in to save the day.
