It's been less than two months since the new Hellboy reboot was announced, with Stranger Things star David Harbour taking over the title role and Neil Marshall directing. Now the project may have a studio home. A new report reveals that Lionsgate is in negotiations to distribute this latest entry in the franchise, and while a studio source has confirmed that negotiations are in fact under way, a deal hasn't been closed at this time. This would be the third studio to take over the franchise in as many movies, but it could very well be the right fit for this material.
Splash Report broke the news on Hellboy finding a new home today, although it isn't clear when this deal may be finalized. Many fans were excited when Hellboy creator Mike Mignola confirmed that this will in fact be an R-rated Hellboy reboot, with director Neil Marshall revealing that »

We round up the latest horror-tinged Blu-ray and DVD releases....
So, after a brief hiatus, it turns out a lot’s happened in the few months between these round ups. A snap general election has been called, terror has struck at the heart of Manchester and a scandal approaching Watergate levels has hit the U.S presidency. More importantly, Troll 2 has finally come to UK Netflix and is the cherry on the cake made entirely of a series of kind of wonderful, kind of… not films on DVD and Bluray.
So, 1990’s Troll 2, you may or may not be aware of, is generally regarded as one of the very greatest 'so bad it’s good' movies. There are many worse (The Rollerblade Seven or Gary Oldman little person rom-com Tiptoes come to mind), though it’s difficult to think of many other truly awful movies »
Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen was announced not even two weeks ago, yet we already have our first promotional art for the upcoming reboot. The film will star Stranger Thing's David Harbour as Mike Mignola's creation, and will be written by Mignola, Andrew Cosby (Eureka), and Christopher Golden (writer of TV movies and two Buffy the Vampire Slayer videogames). The R-rated film will be directed by Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent), who is touching up the script with Aron Coleite (Heroes, Star Trek: Discovery).
IGN has revealed the first promo art for Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, which is simply beautiful artwork by Mignola, accompanied by the new title and the release date of next year. The artwork is currently on displaty at the 2017 Cannes Film Festical.
Sure, it's not even concept art of Harbour as Hellboy, and could literally be a panel from one of Mignola's books, »

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. »
