Selma Blair Is Heartbroken Over The Hellboy Reboot

We are, at the time of writing, about one year out from Lionsgate’s long-anticipated Hellboy reboot, which is set to star David Harbour in the titular role.

The actor, who is perhaps best known for his endearing performance as Chief Jim Hopper in Netflix’s Stranger Things, took over the part from Ron Perlman. Following two stints as Mike Mignola’s cigar-chomping demon, along with years of false starts involving the fabled Hellboy 3, Perlman joined Guillermo del Toro in bidding farewell to the cult fantasy series.

It’s an admittedly anticlimactic end to such a gripping and at times deflating saga, and as you can imagine, the cast of the original films aren’t too happy about it. We’ve already heard from Perlman, who says he’s beginning to make peace with the whole thing, but now his co-star, Selma Blair, has opened up about it, saying she’s heartbroken over the reboot.

Ian McShane Offers New Details on Hellboy's Relationship With Broom in New Film

The new theatrical incarnation of Hellboy, starring David Harbour is going to be a lot different from what fans have become accustomed to with Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman's initial films. The new one is set to have a hard-r rating and will be jam-packed full of witches and demons. But we're now learning that the changes don't stop there.

Actor Ian McShane was cast in the reboot as Hellboy's adopted father, Professor Broom. McShane recently spoke with Fandom and revealed that Broom and Hellboy will have a much different relationship than in the previous films, and a lot of that comes from where the movie chooses to begin their story.

“You don’t start with the birth of Hellboy… but the relationship between [Hellboy and Broom] is quite crusty. Does he trust his father? [Hellboy asks], ‘Why didn’t you kill me? I’m a monster.’ It’s a little bit of a psychological battle against Hellboy.

Ian McShane Vows To Bring His Own Twist To Hellboy’s Professor Broom

Whether it’s the omnipresent Mr. Wednesday on American Gods or Winston, owner of The Contential (John Wick HQ), Ian McShane typically brings with him a sense of gravitas and grandeur that few other actors can replicate.

It’s the reason why his Brother Ray resonated with Game of Thrones viewers, despite being killed off after only one episode – such is the brutal, unforgiving nature of Westeros.

But with Hellboy, he’ll be bringing his own twist to Professor Broom (Aka Trevor Bruttenholm), founder of Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense and the adoptive father of Hellboy himself. Originally portrayed by the late, great John Hurt across Guillermo del Toro’s films, Ian McShane spoke to Fandom about how his own particular rendition of Broom differs from what has come before.

David Harbour on reinventing Hellboy, and the heavy makeup process

With filming on Hellboy having wrapped and director Neil Marshall now in post-production on the reboot, leading man David Harbour has been chatting to Collider about the film, and his excitement over getting the opportunity to reinvent the classic Dark Horse Comics character.

“It was very hard, in that way, but it’s also really thrilling ‘cause I get to carve out an entirely new mythos to this guy and I get to play on this big palette of witches and giants and demons,” said Harbour. “To me, it’s very Shakespearean. I grew up doing regional Shakespeare and when Hamlet sees the ghost of his father, there’s something about that that you don’t really do in film anymore. We rarely see an indie film where you have an emotional pathos where somebody sees a ghost. This is a palette where you can have demons and ghosts and

David Harbour on Hellboy and Getting To Play with Witches, Giants, and Demons

It sounds like David Harbour had a blast making the new Hellboy movie with director Neil Marshall. Of course, he wishes he could've done it when he was 20 years younger. During a recent interview with Collider, that actor talked about the film and how much he enjoyed playing with a variety of mythical creatures.

"It was the hardest shoot I’ve ever done, primarily because there are just so many stunts in it. It’s a very action-packed movie. There’s a lot of story, too, and a lot of big scenes, but there’s a lot of action. There’s a lot of me running around, jumping and turning, and punching stuff. It’s crazy! I’m 42, and the fact that no one asked me to do this in my 20s is so insulting. Why did I have to become a super-monster in my 40s?! My bones are not

David Harbour Says Hellboy May Sing in Upcoming Reboot

Lionsgate's highly-anticipated Hellboy reboot recently wrapped production, but with exactly one year and one day left until the January 2019 release date, it remains unclear when the first footage will be release. While walking the red carpet at the Golden Globes last weekend, star David Harbour dropped quite the tantalizing tidbit, hinting that he may actually get to belt out a tune as the title character. When asked if there was a possibility that Hellboy would actually dance, referring to the actor's now-infamous Hopper dancing scene in Stranger Things Season 2, the actor teased that there will be no dancing, but there may in fact be some singing.

"Actually, not dancing, but I am a triple threat. I don't know if you know this, but I'm also a singer, or at least there was a little bit of crooning that Hellboy may or may not do in the film."

After starting production in mid-September,

David Harbour’s Hellboy ‘May or May Not’ Sing in Reboot

Hellboy probably won’t dance in Neil Marshall’s upcoming film adaptation of the beloved Dark Horse comics, but — if we’re lucky — he may sing.

“I am a triple threat,” Hellboy star David Harbour told MTV News at the Golden Globes. The star couldn’t reveal much about the upcoming film reboot, but he dropped a low-key revelation when he was asked if the half-demon anti-hero would take a page from Sheriff Hopper and dance: “I don’t know if you know this, but I’m also a singer, or at least there was a little bit of crooning that Hellboy may or may not do in the film.”

David Harbour says his Hellboy look is entirely practical effects

One of the more impressive parts of Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy almost-trilogy was that all of the main character’s/creatures were accomplished with practical effects. Which isn’t a surprise, given that Guillermo del Toro seems to prefer practical over CGI whenever possible (see: Pan’s Labyrinth, for a beautiful example).

However, given that Hellboy is being reboot with a new director in the seat, it’s natural to be worried that this new installment will rely more on CGI for its characters than the previous films. Well, fear not, according to Hellboy himself David Harbour. Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Hellboy is au naturale:

“Not a single bit, man. I don’t know why people complain about ‘fake news,’ because fake news works in my favor, in terms of this. That’s all me, 100%.”

David Harbour Wraps Shooting On The ‘Hellboy’ Reboot

Stranger Things actor David Harbour has confirmed to Variety that he has completed shooting the Hellboy reboot over at Lionsgate. The film sees Harbour play the red title character of the piece, alongside Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich, and Daniel Dae Kim.

The actor was in tip-top condition to take on the role of the famous comic book character, previously played by Ron Perlman in Guillermo del Toro’s film version. “It was hard. I’m 40 years old, and I’m running around punching giants,” he said to the trade.

Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen, which is directed by Neil Marshall, will now spend the entirety of 2018 in post-production. It has a release date set for January 2019.

David Harbour confirms that Hellboy has wrapped production

David Harbour has confirmed that Hellboy has officially wrapped production. Sitting down with Variety, the Stranger Things icon confirmed that production has been completed, and also described what suiting up as Hellboy was like:

“It was hard. I’m 40 years old, and I’m running around punching giants.”

It’s hard to expect anything less than the dryest possible response from the man who portrays Sheriff Jim Hopper. Now, aside from casting, and a title — as well as a few hints here, and there — we still don’t have any plot details for the film. However, Harbour’s comments seem to suggest… giants? That’s something. Hopefully, a trailer won’t be too far away!

Hellboy’s David Harbour describes the reboot as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary”

As Lionsgate gears up to begin production on its R-rated Hellboy reboot, new lead David Harbour has been chatting to Variety about the film, describing it as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary” and explaining what drew him to the project.

“Superhero movies are the mythos of modern America,” said the Stranger Things star. “The ancient Greeks had Agamemnon, Achilles, and Cressida, and we have Captain America, Iron Man, and Superman. They are mythos, so I wanted to be involved in that conversation. These movies have been of a certain brand. With Deadpool and Logan, they are trying to do different things. So we are trying to do our own brand of that. I was really excited by that concept — to make a real monster movie that’s dark and scary and about the end of the world.”
