Another Hellboy Movie...

Another Hellboy Movie Is Happening, But With Some Huge Changes

Image

It's been a long time since Hellboy graced the big screen, and while a lot of fans have clamored for a follow-up to 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army, that's not going to happen. Earlier this year, director Guillermo del Toro declared once and for all that the long-awaited Hellboy III would not move forward. However, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola later added that this did not necessarily mean the character wouldn't star in a movie again, and a few months later, Mignola has revealed that a reboot is in the works.

Mike Mignola went on Facebook to announce that another Hellboy movie unconnected to the previous two entries is on the way which will be rated R and directed by Game of Thrones' Neil Marhshall. As for who will succeed Ron Perlman to play the tough, red-skinned, cigar-smoking hero, that honor now belongs to Stranger Things star David Harbour. Those were the only details Mignola provided, but he ended the post saying that more news will come soon. THR is also reporting that the working title for this reboot is Hellboy: Rise of the Blood, and the script was written by Mignola, Andrew Cosby and Christopher Golden

While this news may come as a disappointment to those who've been waiting for Hellboy III to come to fruition, a Hellboy reboot is nonetheless an intriguing idea. The Dark Horse Comics protagonist now joins Batman, Superman and Spider-Man as superheroes who've been re-interpreted more than once in theaters. The character was introduced in 1993, so there's no shortage of material to draw from to provide moviegoing audiences a fresh tale. Since this is the first we're hearing of Hellboy being cinematically re-imagined it will surely be a couple years before the reboot arrives in theaters.

As for the talent currently attached to the Hellboy reboot, it's an impressive start. Neil Marshall directed the Game of Thrones episodes "Blackwater" and "The Watchers on the Wall," both of which are among the more action-heavy stories from the HBO series. Experience like that will be an enormous advantage when helming the new Hellboy movie, which, like its predecessors, will see the main character battling dark magical and paranormal forces. Marshall's credits also include directing episodes of Constantine, Westworld, Timeless and Black Sails.

Then there's David Harbour, who has the right bulky frame to bring this new version of Hellboy to life. Interestingly enough, Harbour was one of the many actors being considered to play Cable in Deadpool 2, and while that role eventually went to Josh Brolin, it's fitting that he would be cast as another muscle-bound hero. Harbour can currently be seen as Chief Jim Hopper on Netflix's Stranger Things, and he's also appeared in The Newsroom, Banshee, The Green Hornet and Suicide Squad.

This is just the beginning of news that will pour in concerning the new Hellboy movie, so stay tuned to for more updates.

Although, Ron Perlman, his voice and style of speaking is unique. Even in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them I didn't recognise him but I did notice his voice and style straight away and had to check in the credits to confirm that it was actually him. So it might be hard to get past that for me.

I'm all for it.  Ron was a great choice and he will always be the first but it's time to pass the torch.

I'm not a fan of Ron Perlman, and glad he's not being part of the cast. But yeah, I'm in for another Hellboy movie, sure, why not...
