Hellboy Reboot

The news of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen remains bittersweet. The reboot landed a helluva team with Neil Marshall (The Descent) and David Harbour (Stranger Things), but it was also a reminder of the death of Guillermo del Toro‘s Hellboy 3. When it became clear the filmmaker wasn’t going to make his epic finale a reality, the demon’s creator, Mike Mignola, decided to move on with the reboot – which was originally envisioned as remaining in the world del Toro established on the big screen.

Below, Mignola discusses the Hellboy reboot.

r-rated hellboy

Neil Marshall is not one to ever let an R-rating go to waste. From Dog Soldiers to The Descent to Doomsday, the filmmaker knows how to get bloody. He usually works with good old-fashioned practical effects for his blood and carnage – which is his plan for the Hellboy reboot. Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, which starts shooting later this year, he says, is going to rely on practical effects as much as possible.

Below, Marshall discusses the R-rated Hellboy movie.

hellboy actors dinner

The news of director Neil Marshall (The Descent) and actor David Harbour (Stranger Things) teaming up for a Hellboy reboot was bittersweet. While Hellboy III appeared less and less likely as the years went by, and Guillermo del Toro confirmed it was dead before the reboot announcement, fans were still sad the final part of del Toro’s trilogy won’t ever see the light of day. Instead, the character is getting a fresh start with Marshall at the helm.

However, there seems to be no hard feelings between the old Hellboy and the new. Recently, in fact, Harbour and Perlman got together for dinner with comedian and actor Patton Oswalt to talk about the character (and probably a lot more than just that). Below, check out the Hellboy actors dining together in harmony.

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.
