Filming on The Descent director Neil Marshall’s darker, rated-R take on Hellboy just began this week, ahead of what we had been told was a 2018 release date. But today we’re learning that we’re going to have to wait a bit longer, as the Lionsgate and Millenium Films reboot has been bumped to 2019.
But don’t worry, it’s early 2019. Look for this one January 11, 2019.
The cast includes David Harbour as Hellboy; 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.
