Ready for some very unexpected but possibly welcome comic book movie news? Just several months after director Guillermo Del Toro declared that the long hoped for Hellboy 3 was officially dead, we now get word that an R-rated reboot of the franchise is in the works.

The news first broke courtesy of Mike Mignola's Facebook page. The artist and writer declared that an R-rated reboot of Hellboy is currently in the works, with Stranger Things star David Harbour set to play the titular character.

It was later announced that the movie has the working title Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. »

A Hellboy remake is in active development according to the original creator Mike Mignola. Mignola took to Facebook to confirm earlier rumours that a new film would be on the way but this time original director Guillermo del Toro will not be directing – that duty will go to none other than The Decent and regular Game Of Thrones director Neil Marshall who will bring a rebooted version which will be R-rated.
Hellboy first debuted in literary form in San Diego Comic Con Comics #2, which was published in August 1993. The character is part of the B.P.R.D. – The Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense – and has so far featured in two movies; Hellboy in 2004 and its sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army four years later in 2008, both of which saw Ron Perlman (Sons Of Anarchy, Hand To God) in the lead role. »

The never-ending saga that is the quest for a third Hellboy movie has just revealed a huge twist: there's indeed a new film adaptation coming, but it won't be directed by Guillermo del Toro. In fact, it won't take place in the movie universe del Toro crafted at all. This new Hellboy movie will be a reboot directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent) and David Harbour (Stranger Things) is set to star as the titular demon himself. The film will be R-rated.
According to THR, neither del Toro nor Ron Perlman, who played Hellboy in the original two films, are involved. It makes sense since just back in February del Toro announced that Hellboy III was not going to happen, »
In news that is sure to surprise fans of Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman's Hellboy movies (especially following del Toro's announcement back in February that a third Hellboy movie would not be moving forward with him at the helm), it's been revealed that a Hellboy reboot is in the works with Neil Marshall potentially directing and David Harbour in talks to star.
Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday) is in discussions to direct and David Harbour (Stranger Things, Suicide Squad) is in talks to play Hellboy, the character brought to life by Ron Perlman in 2004's Hellboy and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army—both of which were directed by del Toro.

We might actually be getting a third Hellboy movie, but in a twisted devil’s bargain that seems appropriate for this series, the news comes with a big caveat. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Millennium is currently negotiating with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin about rebooting the Hellboy series, but the studio will be doing it without original series director Guillermo Del Toro or star Ron Perlman. Instead, Game Of Thrones and The Descent director Neil Marshall will direct, with Stranger Things’ David Harbour in talks to play the eponymous demon. The project is tentatively called Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen, and the script comes from Andrew Crosby, Christopher Golden, and Hellboy creator Mik Mignola.
Perlman has been trying to get a third Hellboy movie off the ground for several years, trying to single-handedly start up a grassroots campaign for it back in 2015. The 2004 original was ...
