Thanks to some production information that has been released we have some new information on director Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot. Thanks to the information we've learned that the movie will start shooting later this month in both Bulgaria and the United Kingdom. It also came with a brief plot summary that you can read below:
The film is about Hellboy going to England, where he must defeat Nimue, Merlin’s consort and the Blood Queen. But their battle will bring about the end of the world, a fate he desperately tries to turn away.
The film is said to be a much closer adaptation of Mike Mignola's amazing comic and David Harbour (Stranger Things) is set to take on the role of Hellboy. He will be joined by Ian McShane as Professor Broom, Milla Jovovich as the Nimue, Blood Queen, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, and Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida, a witch who has decided that the Blood Queen's wrath has gone on for too long.
This will be a dark R-rated version of Hellboy that is said to play out more like a horror film. I think that's one of the things that excites me most about this new adaptation. I just hope it turns out good! So far, I like what I've been hearing!
Hellboy will hit theaters sometime in late 2018. For more details on the Hellboy reboot and to catch up on all our previous news for it, click here.
