SYNOPSIS: Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
UPDATE: The release date for ‘Hellboy’ has been delayed slightly from its original date of January 11th, 2019. The film is now set to debut in theaters on April 12th, 2019. Expect a teaser Trailer soon.

UPDATE: Official images has been released featuring DAVID HARBOUR in full costume as ‘Hellboy’!
In addition DANIEL DAE KIM (TV’s Hawaii Five-O) has officially joined the cast as ‘Major Ben Daimio’, “a rugged military member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense who, due to a supernatural encounter, can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain”. Kim replaces Ed Skrein who voluntarily left the project due to the backlash of whitewashing an Asian American character.
Kim stated: “I applaud the producers and, in particular, Ed Skrein for championing the notion that Asian characters should be played by Asian or Asian American actors. He could not have addressed the issue more elegantly and I remain indebted to him for his strength of character.”
‘Resident Evil’ star MILLA JOVOVICH has signed on to join the cast of the HELLBOY reboot directed by NEIL MARSHALL (The Descent).
Jovovich is set to play the main villain ‘Blood Queen’ alongside IAN MCSHANE (John Wick) as ‘Professor Broom’ and DAVID HARBOUR (Netflix’s Stranger Things), who will be taking over for original star Ron Perlman as the red-skinned hero ‘Hellboy’.
HELLBOY will be rated R with ARON COLEITE (TV’s Heroes) working on the latest draft of the script for Millennium Films and Lionsgate.
