David Harbour (Stranger Things) is playing Hellboy, in the new film which is slated to begin production in September. Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) will direct.

The film’s working title is Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and has a script by Andrew Cosby (Eureka), Christopher Golden, and Mike Mignola (the creator of Hellboy). Ian McShane (John Wick, American Gods) is playing Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm (pronounced Broom). John Hurt previously played the role in Guillermo del Toro’s two films. Milla Jovovich will be playing the Blood Queen.

THR has the news that Sasha Lane (American Honey) is in final negotiations to join the film. If it all goes through she would play Alice Monaghan. In the comic books, Hellboy rescues Alice from the fairies that kidnapped her. She retains some supernatural gifts because of her time with the fairies.

Mike Mignola recently confirmed that the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (the B.P.R.D. or BPRD) would be in the film and Splash Report had some news on what members of the team would be in the film. It also mentions Alice Monaghan.

Minor spoilers ahead.

You will see the B.P.R.D. HEADQUARTERS, which is on a snow-capped mountainside, you will see arcane artifacts: cryptid skeletons, freakish things encased in formaldehyde, period weapons. Fans will also get to see the symbol of a hand holding a sword, with the words: IN ABSENTIA LUCI, TENEBRAE VINCIUNT.

Who are the members of the B.P.R.D. this time around?

  • Abe Sapien
  • Alice Monaghan: She can hear dead people.
  • Major Ben Daimio: rugged military type with cold, calculating eyes, close-cropped hair and three jagged scars raked across his grizzled face.

Other characters include:

  • Gruagach, a fairy creature that looks like a pig and is a vengeful adversary of Hellboy. He blames Hellboy for his current state and wants revenge.
  • Baba Yaga the witch.
  • King Arthur
  • Merlin

Having some of those other characters in the film suggests it will be sticking to lots of the story that involved Alice.

I am glad that Abe will be in the film, but will Doug Jones be playing him? It is already going to be odd not having Ron Perlman as Hellboy. I wonder if Ron Perlman could end up playing Astaroth?

However, I am looking forward to the film which is said to be closer to a horror than the previous movies.
