Earlier today we got our first look at David Harbour as our new Hellboy in director Neil Marshall’s now-filming reboot, courtesy of an image that impressed the hell(boy) out of us. Harbour’s Hellboy looks strikingly similar to Ron Perlman’s; at the same time, he looks darker… scarier… realer.
Marshall’s take on the material is indeed going to be more horror-oriented than Guillermo del Toro’s vision, so it only makes sense that the new Hellboy reflects that tone.
In any event, a second photo of Harbour as Hellboy has surfaced, and we’ve got it for you here tonight. This time the image is in black & white, and Harbour is rocking Hellboy’s trademark trenchcoat. Check it out below!
The cast also includes Milla Jovovich as Nimue, the film’s villain; Ian McShane as Professor Broom; Daniel Dae Kim as Major Ben Daimio; Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida; and Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan.
The new story sees the hero squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind.
Aron Coleite worked 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.
Look for the new film in 2018.
