Hellboy is an upcoming American dark fantasy superhero film directed by Neil Marshall, based on the Dark Horse Comics character Hellboy. The film stars David Harbour in the title role, alongside Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim, and Thomas Haden Church. It is a reboot of the Hellboy film series and is the third live-action Hellboy film. The film draws inspiration from the comic books Darkness Calls, The Wild Hunt, and The Storm and the Fury.
The project began as a sequel to Hellboy II: The Golden Army, with Mignola and Cosby writing the script. Guillermo del Toro was not offered the full writer-director capacity he had performed in the first two films, and Ron Perlman, who portrayed Hellboy, refused to return without del Toro’s involvement. The project was turned into an R-rated reboot after Marshall was hired as the director and Harbour cast as Hellboy. Principal photography began in September 2017 in the United Kingdom and Bulgaria and ended in December 2017. Hellboy is scheduled to be released on April 12, 2019, by Lionsgate in IMAX.
