Hellboy is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Dark Horse Comics character of the same name. The film is directed by Neil Marshall and stars David Harbour in the title role. The film also features Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, and Daniel Dae Kim. It is a reboot of the Hellboy film series and is the third live-action installment in the film series. The film draws inspiration from Darkness Calls, The Wild Hunt, and The Storm and the Fury.
The project began as a sequel to Hellboy II: The Golden Army, with Mignola and Cosby writing the script. Guillermo del Toro was not offered the full writer-director capacity he had performed in the first two films, and Ron Perlman refused to return without del Toro’s involvement. The project was turned into an R-rated reboot after Marshall was hired as the director and Harbour cast as Hellboy. Principal photography began in September 2017 in the United Kingdom and Bulgaria and ended in December 2017. Hellboy is scheduled to be released on April 12, 2019, by Summit Entertainment in IMAX.
Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.
