As announced last week, Neil Marshall (The Descent) is rebooting the Hellboy franchise with upcoming film Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, which will star David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) as the title character. Based on what we’ve heard so far, it’s going to be darker and more gruesome than Guillermo del Toro’s films, which has certainly piqued our interest.
Want to see the first piece of early art? Out of Cannes, we just got our hands on the Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen sales art, which is a beautiful piece from Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. What can we ascertain about the upcoming live-action movie based on the art? Well, nothing really since it hasn’t yet begun filming, but the art seems to suggest a return to the character’s early roots.
Check it out below while we wait for more!
The Millennium Films project has already been scripted by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden, and Mike Mignola, and the plan is to bring it to the screen with an R rating. It is being executive produced by Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman, and Carl Hampe.
Look for Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen in 2018.
