Hellboy Reboot Adds American Honey Star Sasha Lane

15 August 2017 5:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one day after a report surfaced claiming the new Hellboy reboot will feature the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.) and comic book characters such as Abe Sapien, Alice Monaghan and Ben Daimio, the Alice character has been cast. Sasha Lane, the 21-year-old actress who made her breakthrough feature film debut with last year's American Honey, is in final negotiations to play Alice Monaghan, who in the original Mike Mignola comics was a love interest for Hellboy (David Harbour). It isn't clear at this time how many more major characters have yet to be cast, but this diverse ensemble is coming together quite quickly.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on this casting earlier today, while also confirming a report from May that the Hellboy reboot starts filming in September. While it isn't clear who will play Abe Sapien or Ben Daimio quite yet, Sasha Lane »

‘Hellboy’ Reboot Is Now Just Called ‘Hellboy’

10 August 2017 11:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In 2004, we got Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy and in 2008 we got the sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army. With the DVD market drying up, there wasn’t the funding for Hellboy III, but a reboot was put into production under the title Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. All of this was fine. Neil Marshall (The Descent) was directing, David Harbour was on board as Hellboy, Ian McShane was his father figure Professor Broom, and Milla Jovovich was cast at the film’s villainous and eponymous Blood Queen. While she’ll remain villainous, she’s no longer … »

Hellboy adds Resident Evil’s Milla Jovovich as villain the Blood Queen

9 August 2017 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After years of portraying the heroic Alice in the Resident Evil franchise, Milla Jovovich will finally take a turn toward the dark side for Hellboy (formerly titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen). Deadline reports that the actress is in final negotiations to join the franchise reboot as the film’s villain, the Blood Queen.

The film marks Jovovich’s first major franchise role since the long-running Resident Evil franchise churned out its last installment earlier this year. Beyond parts in Rob Reiner’s Shock and Awe and James Franco and Bruce Thierry Cheung’s Future World, many had been speculating where the actress would pop up next. 

In the comics, the Queen of Blood goes by several names, including Nimue and the Lady of the Lake, and is one of Hellboy’s fiercest archenemies. The British witch gained her knowledge of sorcery from Merlin, who she eventually betrayed, and »

Milla Jovovich Will Play Blood Queen In Hellboy Reboot

8 August 2017 11:13 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Deadline are reporting that none other than Milla Jovovich is in talks to play the villain in the forthcoming Hellboy reboot, Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen. If cast, Jovovich will play the title character in the movie, which is being directed by The Descent and frequent Game Of Thrones director Neil Marshall.

David Harbour is playing the red cigar-chomping comic book hero, taking over things from Ron Perlman, who played Hellboy in Guillermo del Toro’s two previous big-screen adventures. Ian McShane is set to play Professor Bloom in the new movie, a role played by the late John Hurt in Hellboy and Hellboy II.

Filming is set to start imminently on the reboot, with the movie looking to arrive in cinemas in 2018. The word on the street is that it is set to be an R-rated affair with limited use of CGI, a fact which is sure to please fans. »

Hellboy Reboot Casts Its Blood Queen

8 August 2017 5:50 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen reboot is picking up speed, filling out its cast, and moving closer to production, for an expected 2018 release. We already know that David Harbour (Stranger Things) will star as Hellboy, Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods) will play his adoptive father, Professor Trevor "Broom" Bruttenholm, and Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent) will direct. Deadline is reporting that Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Resident Evil) is in final talks to play the (supposed) villain, the Blood Queen herself.

Based on recent fan and media reactions, the R-rated reboot has been making all the right moves and generating a lot of excitement. So, this latest news is either spectacular or horrible, depending upon your love/hate for Jovovich's work. It's a fair concern, because she was great in The Fifth Element and A Perfect Getaway (a really taut action-thriller), but she was awful in Ultraviolet and The Fourth Kind. »

8 August 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With her war against the Umbrella Corporation behind her (for now) in the Resident Evil franchise, Milla Jovovich is looking to take on a beloved demon in what could be her next movie.

Deadline reports that Jovovich is in "final talks" to play the Blood Queen, "a medieval sorceress" looking to put an end to humanity as we know it in the Hellboy reboot.

In addition to Harbour, Jovovich would join Ian McShane in the cast, as it was recently revealed that the American Gods and Deadwood actor will play the role of Professor Broom, »

Hellboy creator Mike Mignola hopes reboot can spawn a cinematic universe

8 August 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This shouldn’t really surprise anyone considering everything seems to be about cinematic universes these days, but Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is holding out hope that the upcoming reboot directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent) and starring Stranger Things‘ David Harbour as the titular superhero will launch a shared  universe.

Speaking to The Verge, Mignola explained:.” It’s a very loose adaptation of one of the Hellboy graphic novels. When you have more books out there, you have a lot more to sift through. You can look around at how big the world is, and borrow pieces from here and there. You want to sell a larger world, but you have to pick and choose what goes in there. The challenge for us has been to not lose sight of the specific story, but suggest the elements of a larger story. My hope is that this introduces a lot of »
