The Bureau For Paranormal Research and Defense will fight the creatures that go bump in the night once again in Neil Marshall‘s Hellboy reboot, now simply called Hellboy. Some new details have emerged about the comic book adaptation, including who’s a part of B.P.R.D. this time around. Abe Sapien is on the team, of course, but so is someone who can listen to the dead and a scarred military-type with a dark secret.

Yesterday, we learned that Lionsgate’s new Hellboy reboot film has dropped the Rise of the Blood Queen subtitle and will officially be known as just Hellboy. And perhaps that title better reflects director Neil Marshall‘s approach to the film, which comic creator Mike Mignola describes as being more in line with the original source material.

In a new interview, Mignola talks about his own (surprisingly limited) involvement with the upcoming movie, clarifies the film’s central character, and confirms the appearance of one of the comics’ most recognizable teams.

After the news broke that Milla Jovovich was cast in the Hellboy reboot as the Blood Queen, everyone started to notice Neil Marshall‘s take on the demonic superhero was no longer being called Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. It turns out that the Hellboy reboot title is officially…Hellboy. Just Hellboy. As sweet and simple as you can get.

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.

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.

Guillermo del Toro directing Hellboy 2

The last update we got on Hellboy 3: Don’t get your hopes up. Director Guillermo del Toro has had trouble finding financing for the film, which is bigger in scope compared to the previous Hellboy movies. Hellboy II: The Golden Army got made because a studio head was a fan of del Toro’s and the first movie performed so well on DVD, a market that died around the time the sequel hit home video. Since the movie’s release in 2008, every once in a while del Toro, Ron Perlman, and Hellboy’s creator, Mike Mignola, will discuss the chances of a third installment.

There are no significant or minor developments regarding the project, but del Toro still absolutely wants to make the film and, if enough fans want him to, he’ll meet with Mignola and Perlman to talk about it again.
