The creative team has been working hard to get things ready for a shoot that is reportedly going to start as early as next month, with a presumed release for sometime next year.
Stranger Things star David Harbour has been cast to play the titular character in this version and, according to him, we aren't going to be seeing an origin story when the new Hellboy arrives in theaters.
The actor recently appeared on the Happy, Sad, Confused Podcast and discussed the Hellboy Reboot quite a bit.
In addition to Harbour, the movie is also to star Ian McShane ( Deadwood ) as Professor Broom, Ed Skrein ( Deadpool ) as Major Ben Daimio, Sasha Lane ( American Honey ) as Alice Monaghan and Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich as the villainous Blood Queen.
The Hellboy Reboot is going to be directed by Neil Marshall ( The Descent ), with creator Mike Mignola heavily involved.
