The trio of Sophie Okonedo (After Earth), Brian Gleeson (mother!) and Alistair Petrie (The Night Manager, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) have all been added to the growing cast for the new Hellboy, the Neil Marshall-directed Lionsgate/Millennium Films pic penned by comics creator Mike Mignola, Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Aron Coleite.
They join the previously announced David Harbour as Hellboy and Milla Jovovich as the Blood Queen, as well as Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim and Penelope Mitchell.
The plot of Hellboy follows the hero and his ragtag team of paranormal researchers who are trying to save the world from a medieval sorceress who wants to destroy humankind. Okonedo will play Lady Hatton, a resident seer at the Osiris Club, an ancient English club dedicated to uncovering supernatural mysteries. Petrie is playing Lord Adam Glaren, a high-ranking member at the club, and Gleeson will play Merlin, a wizard. Kim was cast as Ben Daimio, who in Mignola’s comic books is a Japanese American whose heritage has a heavy influence on his character. Deadline first reported the news.
Look for this one January 11, 2019.
