Let’s start with the bad news: we are absolutely 100% not seeing Ron Perlman reprise his role as Big Red, with Guillermo Del Toro at the helm of Hellboy 3. That’s not happening. However, let’s move on to the good news. Hellboy is getting a rated R reboot, with director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent, Constantine, Doomsday) at the helm. The other amazing bit? Stranger Things star, David Harbour, has been cast as Hellboy.
The working title is currently Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, based on a script written by Mike Mignola, Andrew Cosby, and Christopher Golden. Millennium is in talks with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin for the film, as well Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment. Currently, there’s no news regarding the story of the film itself, or any additional casting, but so far, while not Hellboy 3. This sounds fucking rad.
