Rebooting a franchise is never easy, particularly if the property you're looking to spit-shine has a pre-existing and fervent fanbase. Such is the case with Neil Marshall's Hellboy starring Stranger Things star David Harbour and Milla Jovovich. For years, followers of Ron Perlman's pancake eatin', cigar chomping demon have been praying to dark dieties that the... Read More »

There were lots of conflicting feelings going around when it was announced earlier in the year that we were getting a new Hellboy movie. On the one hand, it had to be a good thing that Big Red was returning to the silver screen for the first time in a decade. On the other, it was to be a reboot of the franchise, and not the long-fabled closer to the should-have-been trilogy starring Ron Perlman.
With the Sons of Anarchy actor as his lead, director Guillermo del Toro helmed both 2004’s Hellboy and 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army, but his plans to make a third outing were consistently curtailed thanks to problems with funding. In the end, Lionsgate decided to pursue the project without him and now, 2018’s Hellboy will instead be directed by Neil Marshall with Stranger Things‘ David Harbour in the title role.
In some ways, it »

Production on Neil Marshall's Hellboy got underway earlier this month, but the upcoming reboot hasn't been without controversy. When Ed Skrein (Deadpool) was cast as Major Ben Daimio, who is Japanese-American in the comics, an outcry over whitewashing prompted Skrein to voluntarily step down from the role so that it could be cast appropriately. In a statement, Skrein said... Read More »

Ron Perlman starred as Hellboy from 2004 to 2008 in the original movie and Hellboy 2: Golden Army, both of which were directed by Guillermo del Toro. A third movie had been talked about for years, but it appeared as if the studio was uninterested in the third installment, which leads us to the brand new Hellboy reboot directed by Neil Marshall and starring David Harbour (Stranger Things) as the titular character this time around. Perlman recently took part in a Reddit Ama that was more of an Ask Me (Almost) Anything, as the actor refused to answer any questions about the Hellboy reboot.
"I've made my peace with it... I refuse to answer any questions about it."
In all fairness, Ron Perlman has »
The announcement of the Hellboy reboot must have been a bitter pill for Ron Perlman to swallow. He’s never missed an opportunity to say how much he loved playing the character and from all accounts, is a genuine fan of Mike Mignola’s comics.
Ever since the release of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, both he and director Guillermo del Toro have been campaigning for the chance to make the third and final entry in their story, which would have finally gotten to grips with the impending apocalypse and Big Red’s involvement in it. With this reboot, however, those plans have gone from ‘probably not going to happen’ to just ‘not going to happen.’
Rubbing further salt into the wounds is the general consensus that Perlman was perfect in the part, with his gravellier than gravel voice and ability to emote through pounds of crimson latex defining who »

Greenlit means a project is officially a go, so all you have to do is follow these leads to stay up to date. You never know where you’ll find an opportunity to land an audition! Last week, rumors were circulating that Daniel Dae Kim would replace Ed Skrein in the “Hellboy” reboot, “Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen,” and the actor has made it official. Hi everyone- I’m excited to confirm that I’ve officially joined the cast of #Hellboy. We start shooting today and I’ll be playing Ben Daimio, alongside our very talented cast, headed by David Harbour, (@dkharbour) and director, Neil Marshall. #ThankYou for all the supportive tweets and comments, especially in light of the recent events surrounding its original casting.

As news about American Gods actor Ian McShane’s role in the new Hellboy reboot surfaces, more and more questions are being asked about the future of the Hellboy franchise. Many fans spoke out about original Hellboy actor, Ron Perlman, and their anger seeing the rough and tumble man kicked to the curb, but were at least relieved to see a fitting replacement in Stranger Things star David Harbour, an actor similarly known for his gruff demeanor.

The new movie will pit the big, red cat lover against the Blood Queen, the ruling witch queen over all the witches of England. As the original two films with Perlman focused on Rasputin, a main villain of the series, the sorcerer’s time in the comics ended fairly early.
The blood queen, however, played her role near the end of the standalone Hellboy series, »

A first look of the rebooted Hellboy has been released by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola via Twitter. The image below is actor David Harbour as the half-demon hero and it looks really similar to Guillermo del Toro‘s and Ron Pearlman‘s take on the character.
Mignola’s tweet of the image was captioned with “Holy crap.” We take this as creator approval. Neil Marshall will direct the film which will have Hellboy going to England, where he must defeat Nimue, Merlin’s consort and the Blood Queen. The film will star Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil), Ian McShane (American Gods), new comer Sasha Lane, Penelope Mitchell (The Vampire Diaries) and Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-o) along side David Harbour.
We will definitely keep you posted on all news Hellboy related! Check back soon.

Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot avoided a potential disaster, when Ed Skrein graciously bowed out from playing Major Ben Daimio, upon learning the character is an Asian-American in the comics, leading to the casting of Daniel Dae Kim this week. Daniel Dae Kim has now released a statement, thanking Ed Skrein for doing the right thing, after his casting sparked a whitewashing outcry from the fans. Here's what Daniel Dae Kim had to say in thanking the producers of Hellboy and Ed Skrein for how he handled this situation.
"I applaud the producers and, in particular, Ed Skrein for championing the notion that Asian characters should be played by Asian or Asian American actors. He could not have addressed the issue more elegantly and I remain indebted to him for his strength of character."
The actor gave his statement to The Hollywood Reporter, where he also confirmed that, not only is his deal finalized, »
Update: Lionsgate has reached out and informed us that the widely-reported release date for Hellboy is not accurate, and that the studio has not set a date for the movie at this time. Lionsgate promises to update us all as soon as a release date has been officially decided upon.
Original Story: Lionsgate has announced that Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot will be released on January 11th, 2019. There has been quite a bit of buzz about the reboot of the Hellboy franchise lately with our first look at David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Hellboy along with accusations of whitewashing while casting the part of Major Ben Daimo. The new R-rated reboot is said to be a dark affair that will properly tell the story of Hellboy without going overboard with gratuitous sex and violence just for the sake of the rating.
It was announced back in July that Lionsgate was »
Sneak Peek your first look @ actor David Harbour as director Neil Marshall's "Hellboy", in a feature film reboot, starting this month, targeting a 2018 release, based on creator Mike Mignola's supernatural comic book character.
"...a 'half-demon' whose name is 'Anung Un Rama', 'Hellboy' was summoned from Hell to Earth as a baby on December 23, 1944 by Third Reich occultists. He was discovered by the 'Allied Forces', including 'Professor Trevor Bruttenholm', who formed the 'United States Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense' ('B.P.R.D.').
"In time, Hellboy grew to be a large, red-skinned adult with a tail, horns (which he files off, leaving behind circular stumps on his forehead), cloven hooves for feet and an oversized right hand made of stone, aka the 'Right Hand of Doom'.
"He shows none of the malevolence thought to be intrinsic to classical demons, and has an ironic sense of humor. »

Truth be told, that’s a little later than expected, after a piece of suitably hellish artwork released at Cannes hinted that all involved were targeting 2018 for their “dark” and “gruesome” revival. But let’s face it; news that Hellboy plans to spend a little longer in the oven can only be a good thing, particularly after the Powers That Be almost brought the Internet to a standstill late last night by unveiling not one, but two photos of David Harbour kitted out as the world’s greatest paranormal investigator.
Yes, the high-profile reboot formerly known as Rise of the Blood Queen has come on in leaps and bound, casting a who’s who of Hollywood talent (see: Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Milla Jovovich) since it »

Ever since it was announced back in May, things have continued to move pretty quickly on the upcoming Hellboy reboot, officially titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. With Neil Marshall (The Descent) attached to direct and David Harbour (Stranger Things) on board to star, several other cast members have also been added recently including […] »
Filming on The Descent director Neil Marshall’s darker, rated-r take on Hellboy just began this week, ahead of what we had been told was a 2018 release date. But today we’re learning that we’re going to have to wait a bit longer, as the Lionsgate and Millenium Films reboot has been bumped to 2019. But don’t […] »

Looking Like Hell
It was only announced a few months ago, but the Neil Marshall directed Hellboy reboot is moving ahead at a rapid pace. And last night the official Lionsgate Twitter account released our first look at David Harbour as Anung un Rama. Check it out here.
Like Mother Like Daughter
This is news that could spark some conspiracy theories about the character’s parentage, but it has been revealed that Billie Lourd – the daughter of the late Carrie Fisher – auditioned for the role of Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “J.J. Abrams called me to come in for Star Wars because he couldn’t find someone for the lead,” Lourd told Ellen. “He ended up finding Daisy Ridley who’s an incredible actress, so talented. But I went in and he ended up giving me this tiny role with a couple of lines. I was super excited. »
