The R-Rated 'Hellboy' Reboot We All Have Been Waiting for is in Development
It's been almost nine years since we've seen a Hellboy movie on the big screen. It was 2008 and the movie was Hellboy II: The Golden Army. The film had a successful start, opening number one at the box office, taking in more than $35 million in its opening weekend.
And then six days later The Dark Knight opened...and that was all she wrote.
Hellboy has been left out of the golden era of comic book movies we've had over the last eight years. Well that's about to change.
A couple of minutes ago, Mike Mignola, who created the character for Dark Horse Comics back in the '90s, posted this message on his Facebook account:
There's a lot of good news here, mainly that they are going to give this another go, and that it's going to be rated R. According to Hollywood Reporter, Millennium is in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin to reboot the property.
Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen is the working title.
Guillermo del Toro, the director of the first two Hellboy movies, and Ron Pearlman, who actually played the title character, won't be part of this reboot. But when you hear names like Neil Marshall and David Harbour are involved, you can't help but be optimistic.
