Legendary AF indeed! Entertainment Weekly has unveiled our first look at director Neil Marshall’s reboot of Hellboy’s poster. The new film will be a departure from Academy Award-winning Guillermo Del Toro‘s series.
The new series will be focusing less on laughs and more on the scares. Starring in the title role is Stranger Thing‘s David Harbour. The film will also star Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Brian Gleeson, Daniel Dae Kim, and Sophie Okonedo. The project began as a sequel to Hellboy II: The Golden Army, with Mignola and Andrew Cosby writing the script. Guillermo del Toro declined to return to direct, preferring to direct his own script and Ron Perlman refused to return without Del Toro’s involvement. The project was turned into an R-rated reboot after Neil Marshall was hired as the director.
The film follows Hellboy squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy mankind. Hellboy arrives in theaters April 12, 2019.
