Director Neil Marshall (The Descent) is going much darker than Guillermo del Toro did with his upcoming Hellboy, a rated “R” reboot starring David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) as the title character. Lionsgate had been all set to release the “reboot” in theaters on January 11, 2019, but we’ve learned today it’s been pushed back a few months.
The new date for Hellboy is April 12, 2019.
Also starring: 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 with Sophie Okonedo (After Earth), Brian Gleeson (mother!) and Alistair Petrie (The Night Manager, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).
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 exec produced by Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman, and Carl Hampe.
