Hellboy 3 has been a subject of news for some time, from actor Ron Perlman’s demands and spurring support from fans.
But as it turns out Hellboy is rising from the pits of Hollywood. But not as a sequel. It will be a reboot. And on top of it, it seems they have a new star in their sights to play the hornless demon – Stranger Things‘ David Harbour.
The news comes directly from Hellboy comic creator Mike Mignola. The reboot is said to be an R-rated film currently in development.
Director Guillermo Del Toro is also not on board.
Statement on social media from Mike Mignola reads:
Okay, here’s some news. There is going to be another Hellboy movie. It’s going to be an R-rated reboot directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game Of Thrones) and starring David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Hellboy. More news to come soon.
Millennium is reportedly in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin about the Hellboy reboot.
More as things develop.
