Hellboy (Harbour / McShane / Jovovich)

Post by WyldeMan on 5/8/2017, 8:56 pm

Hellboy, the demonic comic book hero turned Guillermo del Toro film franchise, is poised to return to the big screen, this time without the filmmaker at the helm.

Millennium is in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin for a new installment that would reboot and relaunch the property. Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment is also producing.

Neil Marshall, the horror director who broke out with The Descent and won raves for his work on Game of Thrones, is in talks to direct the project, which has a working title of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and has a script by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

Del Toro is not involved, nor is Ron Perlman, the actor who inhabited the red-skinned, cigar-chomping devil in the two previous installments.

Rather, David Harbour, the Stranger Things star, is in talks to play Hellboy.

If a deal is made, Millennium would become the third company to make a Hellboy movie in as many releases.

Hellboy was created in 1993 by Mignola and became an indie comic hit as it told of a demon, raised by a professor, working to fight supernatural evildoers for an organization called Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense.

Del Toro co-wrote and directed the first adaptation, which was made by Revolution Studios and released by Sony in 2004. The movie made $60 million domestically (another $40 million internationally, asterisked by the fact that this was the era before international box-office dominated performance) on a budget of $66 million.

The second movie was made by Universal with the same team — del Toro and Perlman — but its box-office mojo was cut short when The Dark Knight, directed by Christopher Nolan and featuring Heath Ledger as the Joker, opened six days later.

But both movies engendered strong cult followings and there were rumblings of a third installment. Last year, del Toro, Dark Horse Entertainment, Levin and Gordon, the latter of whom controls the rights, explored their options. However, the budget was a stumbling block, with del Toro wanting a bigger canvas for his vision. In the end, the producers decided a reboot and relaunch was the more feasible route.

It's a very rich property for mining and GDT is too busy making every project except Hellboy and Perlman has gotten too old. Besides, everything old is new again.

Cannes: ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Attracts Big Chinese Bids
A bidding battle is under way in Cannes for Chinese rights to the reboot of the “Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen” franchise. The project is being represented by Avi Lerner’s Millennium Films.

With bids in the region of $13 million for mainland China, the film is one of the hottest on the Croisette. International buyers are understood to have been told that the picture will be guaranteed a 2,000-screen release in North America.

The new “Hellboy” project emerged a couple of weeks ago with Mike Mignola, who created the original “Hellboy” comic, breaking the news on Facebook.

“Game of Thrones” and “The Descent” director Neil Marshall is attached to helm the film, and “Stranger Things” actor David Harbour in talks to star.

Among the highest bids for China is one understood to have come from a Guangzhou-based company that is not known to be a mainstream distributor. Finding the price too rich and fearing that the deal may collapse, other companies have dropped out.

Millennium has several action and genre projects that appeal to mainstream Chinese audiences. It licensed two — “Hunter Killer” and “Escobar” — in Berlin. Since the end of March, Millennium has been 51% owned by diverse Chinese conglomerate Recon.

Fans have been asking about a third “Hellboy” for years, following the original 2004 film and the 2008 sequel “Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” both of which starred Ron Perlman as the titular superhero and were directed by Guillermo del Toro. Both Perlman and del Toro  had previously talked down rumors of a third installment, with Perlman saying last year that “Hellboy 3” “probably will never happen.” Sony released the original “Hellboy,” with Universal distributing the sequel.

GDT tried to shop another Hellboy sequel recently.

Perlman was on board.

Hollywood opted for this stupid reboot.

With that said, GDT is to blame for waiting too long.

GDT is 100% to blame in my mind because instead of making Hellboy 3 he chose to get involved with horrible trash like Mama, The Strain, Crimson Peak, Afraid of the Dark and a children's series and the upcoming Pinnochio, just literally anything but Hellboy 3. I once considered him one of my most favorite Directors and I got excited about each new film but he's become unwatchable over the last decade for me as I have yet to enjoy a single one of his projects after Hellboy 2.

Mignola isn't exactly happy that GDT continued to choose other projects over the last 7 years since GDT's work with The Hobbit ended. He wnats a darker direction and for his character to return to the screen and I can't blame him because I really want that too. I'm excited for a darker R rated version of Hellboy and I look forward to seeing what Neil Marshall will do with it.

David Harbour Teases ‘Hellboy’ Reboot As ‘Darker,’ ‘More of a Character Piece’
David Harbour just wrapped filming the second season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” Now he’s preparing to start shooting “Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen,” which he teased as “darker” and “more of a character piece” to TheWrap.

“We’re supposed to go in September, I hope,” he said during a recent interview with TheWrap. “It’s good. It’s a whole new thing. I’d always been a fan of the comics and there’s a darker tone to it and I think in the climate we have now there’s kind of a darker… a desire for more of that… the script is good and this guy Neil Marshall is directing who’s really good and the aesthetic is great.”

In April, “Hellboy” creator Mike Mignola announced the R-rated reboot of the franchise with Marshall (“The Descent”) as the helmer of the project. Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Mignola are writing the script.

The news came two months after Guillermo del Toro, who directed 2004’s “Hellboy” and 2008’s “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” with Ron Perlman playing the titular character, announced “Hellboy 3” would not happen.

In weeks prior, the filmmaker had teased fans with “Hellboy 3,” putting polls on Twitter about the threequel and writing that he met with Perlman, who is “in for the sit down.”

That didn’t pan out, unfortunately, as del Toro is not attached to the upcoming reboot in which Harbour will play the titular hero. Harbour credited his performance as Jim Hopper in “Stranger Things” as the reason he will play Hellboy.

“It’s a character that I love, and sort of in the way, I think Mike [Mignola] and a bunch of other people saw me in ‘Stranger Things’ and wanted me to play Hellboy and I think he has some parallels to him. I think he’s another complicated anti-hero who is not strictly good or bad, he’s just trying to do the right thing. I think he’s a demon, he’s crazy, and he’s also sweet and vulnerable and neurotic […] so there’s a lot of complexity there.”

All in all, Harbour just wants to make a “good movie.”

“So often, the superhero movies can be really fun and I want this to be really fun, but I also want it to be more of a character piece and more about this dude’s struggle. I think it could be interesting,” he added. “I don’t know, I just hope we make a good movie. We’ll see. You be the judge!”

The first “Hellboy” earned a worldwide total of $99 million at the box office and starred Perlman and Selma Blair. Its sequel performed better, earning $160 million worldwide. Although the movies weren’t runaway smash hits, critics loved them, both earning a score in the 80s on Rotten Tomatoes.

Years ago, Harbour came close to starring in another superhero film when he auditioned for a “Wolverine” movie. The actor told TheWrap that he was body-shamed while auditioning for The Blob in one of the “Wolverine” films — he says a director actually told him he was too fat for the role.

‘Hellboy’ Reboot Director Marshall to Prioritize Practical Effects over CG
If you have concerns that Neil Marshall‘s Hellboy reboot will be a CG-fest, let the director himself put those fears to rest. Though the project is still in the early stages of pre-production, Marshall recently spoke about his plans for the big-screen adaptation of Mike Mignola‘s comic book series–to be scripted by Mignola, Andrew Cosby, and Christopher Golden–that will star David Harbour in the title role.

In speaking to Mick Garris (Hocus Pocus) for his “Post Mortem” podcast (via EW), Marshall talked up his penchant for using practical, in-camera effects throughout his filmmaking career and the likelihood that he will continue to do so whenever he can. So you can probably expect Hellboy, his horns, and his red right hand to be done through a combination of make-up and costuming work, with the more outlandish effects left to the computer gurus.

Here are Marshall’s full quotes about the use of practical effects in his upcoming film:

   “It’s definitely going to be as practical as we can possibly make it. I love to do stuff in camera whenever I possibly can, and use CG as the amazing tool that it is, to enhance or expand upon the world, but not to use it to replace reality, when you can do it [for] real.”

He also weighed in on the film’s aim for an R rating and how freeing that has been for adapting Mignola’s work:

   “We’ve been granted permission to do it R-rated, which for me is just like taking the cuffs off. It’s like, okay, so now we can just make the movie we want to make. It’s not like I’m going to force it to be R-rated, but if it happens to come out that way, just because of my own sensibilities, then fine. And nobody’s going to stop us. So, that’s the main [difference]. And I’m sure, obviously, the success of things like Deadpool and Logan have not hurt that cause. But, also, when you go back the original material, it is kind of bloody, so I’m going to embrace that.”

Ian McShane Joins David Harbour in ‘Hellboy’ Reboot

Ian McShane has joined David Harbour in Lionsgate and Millennium’s “Hellboy” reboot.

Harbour will star as the titular demonic hero from Mike Mignola’s comic books in the new film, titled “Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.” McShane will play Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Broom.

“The Descent” director Neil Marshall is on board to helm. The new story sees Harbour’s hero squaring off against a sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind.

The project is eyeing a September start and will shoot in the U.K. and Bulgaria.

McShane currently stars on Starz’s “American Gods,” which has earned him some of his best reviews of his career since toplining the HBO series “Deadwood.” He also recently reprised his role in “John Wick 2” opposite Keanu Reeves.

Broom was played by the late great John Hurt in GDT's Hellboy. McShane is an interesting choice.

Milla Jovovich Is the Blood Queen

Just one week after Ian McShane signed on to play Professor Broom, the long-awaited Hellboy reboot has finally found its Blood Queen. Milla Jovovich is reportedly in final talks to play The Blood Queen in Lionsgate's new Hellboy adventure, alongside David Harbour as the title character. The production has also brought on another writer, with Aron Coliete (Heroes) taking a crack at the script that has been worked on by Andrew Crosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mingola.

Deadline broke the casting news earlier today, although it remains to be seen how many more pivotal characters will need to be cast before all is said and done. Still, this project has come together rather quickly, from Mike Mingola's initial Hellboy reboot announcement in May, which included the news of David Harbour starring as Hellboy and Neil Marshall directing. The script by Andrew Crosby had already been completed when the news was announced, and there was also a report that claimed production may begin as early as this September. With the cast coming together as quickly as it has, that report may in fact be true after all.

Director Neil Marshall has also confirmed that this will be an R-rated Hellboy reboot, after both of the previous Hellboy movies, 2004's Hellboy and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army, were PG-13. While they were both lauded by fans and critics alike, neither movie made a massive dent at the box office, with Hellboy earning $59.6 million domestic and $99.3 million worldwide, from a $66 million budget, while Hellboy II: The Golden Army earned $75.9 million domestic and $160.3 million worldwide from an $85 million budget. While there has been an influx in popularity for R-rated fare over the past few years, with hits such as Deadpool, Logan and Get Out, it remains to be seen if the switch to R-rated fare will be more lucrative than its predecessors' PG-13 movies.

While no details have been given regarding the story, Hellboy reboot writer Andrew Crosby teased in May that the story is a "darker, more gruesome version of Hellboy." The writer added that new director Neil Marshall wanted to walk the "razor's edge" between a horror movie and a comic book movie, which falls closer in line to the edgier comics by Mike Mingola. As for the Blood Queen, it's unclear if this could be a character from the comics known as The Queen of Blood, a.k.a. Nimue. In the comics, this character is resurrected to battle Hellboy and bring him to his nemesis Gruagach, but Hellboy and his zombie knights defeat her, although she ends up dragging him back to hell with her.

David Harbour has previously shared photos before getting his facial cast made for the movie, although it remains to be seen when we'll get our first glimpse of the actor in full costume. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin and Mike Richardson are producing for Millennium Films and Lionsgate, along with Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman, who are producing through Campbell Grobman Films. This Hellboy role of Blood Queen comes just months after Milla Jovovich closed out the Resident Evil franchise with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, where she played the heroic Alice. This role marks a rare villainous role for the actress, so it will be interesting to see how fans respond to the casting.

Hellboy Title Confirmed, Will Completely Reboot Original Movie
Yesterday, we reported that Milla Jovovich was in final talks to play The Blood Queen in Lionsgate's Hellboy reboot, which makes sense since the project was reportedly being called Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. While the casting news was apparently accurate, news of the subtitle was not, since a Lionsgate rep reached out to us this afternoon, confirming the project will only be known as Hellboy. Here's what the rep had to say in a brief statement.

"The official title is just Hellboy. The film is considered a reboot of the 2004 Hellboy, and is going by the same name."

The Lionsgate rep didn't add any additional details about the project, and while the title may not be Rise of the Blood Queen, that certainly doesn't nullify Milla Jovovich's casting as this character. What is less clear at this point is if The Blood Queen is the same character from the Mike Mingola comic books known as the Queen of Blood, a.k.a. Nimue, who was brought to life to bring Hellboy to his nemesis Gruagach. However, Hellboy resurrects an army of the dead and defeats her, but she ends up getting the last laugh, dragging him down to hell with her. Since no concrete plot details have been released yet, it's possible that this could be the Queen of Blood, or a completely different character created for this movie.

There was a report last month that this Hellboy reboot was almost going to continue Guillermo del Toro's Hellboy universe, but that didn't happen. Hellboy comic book creator Mike Mingola revealed in a social media post that he started working with screenwriter Andrew Crosby three years ago on a new story, and Guillermo del Toro wanted nothing to do with the project, and Ron Perlman in turn followed suite. With a new story in place, and a new director in Neil Marshall, they decided to forge ahead with a reboot, instead of a continuation of the first two movies, 2004's Hellboy and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

It has also been confirmed that this Hellboy reboot will in fact be R-rated, with writer Andrew Crosby teasing that this story is a much more dark and gruesome version of Hellboy than fans have seen in the earlier movies. Still, since the first two movies were no box office blockbusters by any means, it's certainly an interesting strategy, but one that could pay off big, especially given the recent success of R-rated movies like Deadpool, Logan and Get Out. Of course, since there is virtually nothing we know about this story at the moment, it's impossible to tell now if this R-rated gamble will pay off when Hellboy hits theaters. With production reportedly starting next month, we could find out much more about this project.

David Harbour will step into the Hellboy shoes previously occupied by Ron Perlman, with both actors recently meeting for a special dinner in New York City, organized by Patton Oswalt, with photos from the dinner going viral. It was also recently confirmed that Ian McShane will take on the role of Professor Broom, played by John Hurt in the first two movies. It isn't known at this time if characters like Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) and Liz Sherman (Selma Blair) from the first two movies will be involved in this reboot, or who will be playing them.

Hellboy Reboot Will Bring in B.P.R.D. and Introduce New Characters
Last week it was announced that the Hellboy reboot will simply be called Hellboy, and not Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen as previously reported. Today, we have even more details about the script, including some new and returning characters that will be featured in this thrilling adventure. Comic book creator Mike Mignola recently teased that this reboot will include the Bureau of Paranorman Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.), and today we have more details about where the B.P.R.D. will be setting up shop, along with news of never-before-seen characters from the comics, along with a few that were featured in the first two Hellboy movies. There will be potential SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.

One of Splash Report's sources reveals that the B.P.R.D. headquarters will be located, "on a snow-capped mountainside," although no specific location details were given. Inside the B.P.R.D. fans will get to see, "cryptid skeletons, freakish things encased in formaldehyde, period weapons," along with "the symbol of a hand holding a sword, with the words: IN ABSENTIA LUCI, TENEBRAE VINCIUNT," the Latin motto of the B.P.R.D. which translates to "In the absence of light, darkness conquers." This report also reveals who the members of this organization will be in the reboot.

Alongside David Harbour's Hellboy, the B.P.R.D. will also include Abe Sapien, played by Doug Jones in the original movies, along with characters who haven't been featured in the movie before, such as Alice Monaghan, who can "hear dead people" and will also be using the "Spirit Wrack," and Major Ben Daimio, described as a "rugged military type with cold, calculating eyes, close-cropped hair and three jagged scars raked across his grizzled face." This character will also have a "cool transformation" in the movie, which was not disclosed. Other characters that will be featured include the Gruagach, a "fairy creature that looks like a pig and is a vengeful adversary of Hellboy," who blames the title character for his "current state and wants revenge." Others include Babe Yaga the Witch along with King Arthur and Merlin.

This report also confirms that this project will in fact be an R-rated reboot, which we've heard several times in the past, with the plot said to be a "darker horror story" instead of lighter, more comedic stories that have been told in the first two movies. Production will take place in London, with the story also featuring a massive creature with giant tentacles which wraps its limbs around the London Bridge. This report also claims that the story will be left "wide up for a sequel," with the end of the movie showing who Hellboy will be going after next.

This report doesn't shed any light on a report from May, which claimed that the Hellboy reboot starts filming in September. Lionsgate has yet to set a release date, and the studio is still in casting mode, with Ian McShane recently coming aboard to play Professor Broom, with Milla Jovovich taking on a rare villainous role as the infamous Blood Queen. It isn't reported when we may have casting news about the other characters mentioned in this report, but if filming on this Hellboy reboot will in fact begin next month, we could hear more about this project sooner than later.

Hellboy Reboot Adds American Honey Star Sasha Lane
Just one day after a report surfaced claiming the new Hellboy reboot will feature the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense (B.P.R.D.) and comic book characters such as Abe Sapien, Alice Monaghan and Ben Daimio, the Alice character has been cast. Sasha Lane, the 21-year-old actress who made her breakthrough feature film debut with last year's American Honey, is in final negotiations to play Alice Monaghan, who in the original Mike Mignola comics was a love interest for Hellboy (David Harbour). It isn't clear at this time how many more major characters have yet to be cast, but this diverse ensemble is coming together quite quickly.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news on this casting earlier today, while also confirming a report from May that the Hellboy reboot starts filming in September. While it isn't clear who will play Abe Sapien or Ben Daimio quite yet, Sasha Lane joins a cast that also includes Milla Jovovich as The Blood Queen and Ian McShane as Professor Broom, a character played by John Hurt in 2004's Hellboy and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army. While Abe Sapien was played by Doug Jones in those movies, the Alice Monaghan and Ben Daimio characters were not featured.

This report also claims that the story follows Hellboy squaring off against a "medieval sorceress," the aforementioned Blood Queen, who has designs on destroying the world as we know it. In the comic books, Alice Monaghan was rescued by Hellboy from the faeries who kidnapped her, and she retains some "supernatural gifts" thanks to all the time she has spent with the faeries. One of these gifts was Alice's ability to "hear dead people" and she can also use the "Spirit Wrack" in this movie. Still, it remains unclear if she will become a love interest to Hellboy, but since we haven't heard about the involvement of the Liz Sherman character, played by Selma Blair in the first two movies it's possible Alice Monaghan will be Hellboy's go-to girlfriend.

It was also recently confirmed that this project will be titled Hellboy, and not Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, as previously reported. While there had been talk of merely continuing the story laid out by writer-director Guillermo del Toro and star Ron Perlman, with a new cast and crew, it was also recently confirmed that this will be a complete reboot that will start the story over from scratch. This will also be the first R-rated Hellboy movie, with the story said to be much darker and more gruesome that the first two movies before it. Still, we won't know for sure how much more dark and gruesome it is until production begins and we can see the first footage.

Stranger Things star David Harbour takes over the title role from Ron Perlman, with Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) directing from a script that has been worked on by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce with Dark Horse Entertainment's Mike Richardson. After making her feature film debut in A24's critically-acclaimed American Honey, Sasha Lane has been lining up projects left and right, although this Hellboy reboot will mark her first major studio project. She most recently shot The Miseducation of Cameron Post alongside Chloe Moretz and Shotgun with Maika Monroe, with others such as Freak Shift, Shoplifters of the World and Hunting Lila in pre-production. With the cast coming together so quickly we may be hearing about more Hellboy casting additions sooner rather than later.

All redheaded leading ladies from comics are being completely written out in live action adaptations for a more "diverse" approach these days and yet the diversity always happens to be AA.

And what's rarer than a Redhead these days?!

Not only was she a redhead but it played into her origins.


Alice is a woman of Irish blood that Hellboy rescued as an infant.

When she was a baby, fairies kidnapped Alice to raise as their own, because they could no longer have children, as seen in "The Corpse." To rescue her, Hellboy had to take a corpse to an appropriate grave and dispatch with the last fomorian. Even after she was rescued, however, she continued to see the fairies, whom she claims to never have tried to take her again like before. Her mother sent her off to school out of worry upon discovering this, and when both her parents passed away, she returned home. Despite being in her early fifties, Alice looks remarkably young - a trait she attributes to spending so much time with the fairies.
