Deadpool star Ed Skrein has become the latest addition to the cast of Lionsgate’s Hellboy reboot, with THR reporting that the actor is set to portray Major Ben Daimio, described as “a rugged military member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense who, due to a supernatural encounter, can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain.”
The film is being directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) and stars David Harbour (Stranger Things) in the title role alongside Ian McShane (American Gods) as Professor Broom, Sasha Lane (American Honey) as Alice Monaghan and Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil) as the villain the Queen of Blood.
Meanwhile, speaking to the Happy Sad Confused Podcast (via Collider), David Harbour has spoken about following in the footsteps of Ron Perlman, and how his approach to the character will differ from his predecessor:

The upcoming Hellboy reboot has been moving right along ever since it was announced in May. The creative team has been working hard to get things ready for a shoot that is reportedly going to start as early as next month, with a presumed release for sometime next year. Though, a release date has not yet been set. Stranger Things star David Harbour has been cast to play the titular character in this version and, according to him, we aren't going to be seeing an origin story when the new Hellboy arrives in theaters.
The actor recently appeared on the Happy, Sad, Confused Podcast and discussed the Hellboy reboot quite a bit. In addition to Harbour, the movie is also to star Ian McShane (Deadwood) as Professor Broom, Ed Skrein (Deadpool) as Major Ben Daimio, Sasha Lane (American Honey) as Alice Monaghan and Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich as the villainous Blood Queen. »
A report surfaced last week that revealed a number of Hellboy characters from the comics will be featured in the new Hellboy reboot, such as Abe Sapien, Alice Monaghan, played by the most recent casting addition, Sasha Lane, and Ben Daimio. Today we have word that Ed Skrein, who is coming off his villainous role as Ajax in last year's Deadpool, will play Major Ben Daimio, who is described as a "rugged military member" of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.). It's possible that Abe Sapien's casting will be just around the corner, as we get closer to a September production start.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that this B.P.R.D. character Ben Daimio can transform himself into a jaguar, when he's angered or when he's in pain. While Abe Sapien was featured in the original Hellboy movies, starring Ron Perlman and directed by Guillermo del Toro, »
When the new Hellboy reboot hits screens, we won’t be treading familiar territory. While fans clamored for years to see Guillermo del Toro complete his Hellboy trilogy, comics creator Mike Mignola and the studio who owns the rights had other plans. It was announced earlier this year that Mignola was co-writing a brand new Hellboy reboot to be directed by The Descent helmer Neil Marshall, with Stranger Things breakout David Harbour filling the role of the titular half-demon. The film—which was previously titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and is now simply Hellboy—has been … »

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 »

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 … »

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 »

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: 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. »

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 »
