‘Hellboy’ is So Violent it Allegedly Contains Severed Heads

Neil Marshall’s Hellboy is going to be very different from Guillermo del Toro’s, rebooting the franchise with plans on targeting an “R” rating.

An unconfirmed source, Splash Report, is sharing script details including that the new Hellboy “will indeed be Rated R and will be a darker horror story than the lighter tone from the previous del Toro films, as you get to see a lot of cool actions scenes that include severed heads.”

“There are some creatures of darkness,” their source adds, “one creature has giant tentacles which wraps themselves around the London Bridge, hence why the film will be filmed in London.”

In addition, the site says we’ll see the B.P.R.D. HEADQUARTERS, which is on a snow-capped mountainside, as well as arcane artifacts: cryptid skeletons, freakish things encased in formaldehyde, period weapons.

The members of the B.P.R.D. feature include:
-Abe Sapien
-Alice Monaghan: She can hear dead people. She will also use the Spirit Wrack.
-Major Ben Daimio: rugged military type with cold, calculating eyes, close-cropped hair and three jagged scars raked across his grizzled face. Has a cool transformation, which I can not spoil.

Other characters include:
Gruagach, a fairy creature that looks like a pig and is a vengeful adversary of Hellboy. He blames Hellboy for his current state and wants revenge.
Baba Yaga the witch.
King Arthur
Merlin

Fans will also get to see the symbol of a hand holding a sword, with the words: IN ABSENTIA LUCI, TENEBRAE VINCIUNT.

Lastly, Hellboy allegedly leaves it wide up for a sequel as you get to see who Hellboy is going after next.

The Descent, Centurion, and Dog Soldiers Director Neil Marshall is behind the camera on the new incarnation that will feature “Stranger Things” star David Harbour in the title role. Resident Evil‘s Milla Jovovich was just announced to play the film’s villain, the elusive Blood Queen. Ian McShane is set to play Professor Broom.

Aron Coleite is working on the latest draft of a script by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin and Mike Richardson are the producers. Hellboy is being executive produced by Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman, and Carl Hampe.

Shooting should begin as early as next month.

  • J Jett

    sounds good to me! i was never really into Del Toro’s HELLBOY (i didn’t hate the film) so i’m definitely open to seeing what Neil Marshall’s HELLBOY will be like. plus with the awesome cast of Milla Jovovich/Ian McShane/David Harbour it makes this movie a “must see” for me!

  • zombie84_41

    this sounds so dope hope it be as good as it sounds got an amazing director, actor, and its R so no way it can suck

  • Grimphantom

    They are dealing with vampires and monsters so it’s obvious we will see some gore.

  • Mr_Dave

    You had me at the possibility of seeing HellBoy go up agents the Baba Yaga

  • Axi

    WTF, dude? No one should have to see pics from that movie.

  • Jack Derwent

    Why does Hellboy need to be R in the first place?

    • Doctor Dementor

      They are dealing with Zombies ,vampires,monsters,Deadites,Skeletons,Diagon childs,Cryptids,some old Mummies and gods,demons,demons king,Krakens,cannibals,some cults of psycho ugly fanatics……ect the list is long… well yeah obviously the holy ”R” is the well deserved cherry on the blood cake 😀

        I’ve read several of the trades. There was very little that was overtly gory or would warrant a higher rating than either of Guillermo’s films.

      • Necro

        Yes it is!

    • Derek Parker

      y not …?? heavy on blood and guts!!! nyet on the nudity I say!!

  • The real reason for the “R” rating: BABA YAGA BOOBS.

  • RedNeoCon

    Doug Jones will be hard to beat as Abe Sapien

  • Colin Christian

    How the hell are they going to top Del Toro’s Abe Sapien? Steve Wang did one of the best monster paint jobs ever for that makeup,it will really take some beating,I think they nailed Abe first time around. Even so,I like Marshall,I think this will be great,throw in some ‘Descent’ creepiness!
