hellboy reboot

It’s been nine years since fans last saw Mike Mignola’s comic book character Hellboy on the big screen, and though there was a metric ton of discussion about another Guillermo del Toro-directed sequel, we know that his version of Hellboy 3 is never going to happen. But all is not lost: we learned earlier this month that Mignola is taking the character in a new direction with an R-rated movie reboot that features Stranger Things actor David Harbour taking over the title role from Ron Perlman. Now Perlman has weighed in on the new casting, given Harbour his blessing, and described the scope and intentions of the abandoned capper of his would-be trilogy.

Hellboy Reboot

This week brought the surprising news that instead of seeing Hellboy 3 come to fruition, comic creator Mike Mignola was teaming with Millennium Pictures to reboot Hellboy as a new feature film franchise. Stranger Things star David Harbour is going red in the titular role and Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall getting behind the camera. Naturally, some fans are loyal to the franchise created by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Perlman, but this Hellboy reboot promises to be its own thing.

Our own Jacob Hall already wrote why a Hellboy reboot might be something fans enjoy, if only because it sounds like it will be more in line with creator Mike Mignola’s vision from the comics. Now we have word from the film’s screenwriter Andrew Cosby about what we can expect from the new Hellboy. Read More »

Update: According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit, the Hellboy reboot could be coming sooner than expected. We’ve added the information below.

Guillermo del Toro‘s Hellboy films are two of the best comic book movies ever made…even if they rarely feel anything like the source material. While they were made with the full blessing of creator Mike Mignola, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army are del Toro movies through and through, often discarding the tone of the original Dark Horse comics so the filmmaker (one of the great creative minds alive today) could follow his muse.

And while Hellboy 3 is officially dead and buried and never getting made, the character may very well return to the big screen – a Mignola-sanctioned reboot is currently in the works with very interesting director and a very interesting actor both attached. The news that Hellboy is getting rebooted isn’t surprising. This is Hollywood’s modus operandi. The real news here is that the talent currently attached to the Hellboy reboot seem like picks that will result in a movie more in line with the original comics.

Hellboy Whiskey

Earlier this year, we found out that Hellboy 3 had finally been abandoned. Despite the interest from fans that was expressed online, a meeting between film franchise director Guillermo del Toro, star Ron Perlman and comic creator Mike Mignola resulted in the decision that a final sequel wouldn’t move forward.

For those of you out there who are still bummed about Hellboy 3 never coming to fruition, we have just the thing to help you get over it. Dark Horse Comics and Prestige Imports LLC has teamed with XXX Distillery LLC in Tennessee to create an official Hellboy whiskey that will help drown your sorrows. Read More »
