Stuck in the meandering dusty production studios for many years, Hellboy has finally swapped Guillermo del Toro against Neil Marshall. The film unfolds more and more and he looks rather badass.
Even if you had trouble digesting the replacement of the casting original, it must be confessed that there is still a little tickled by the release of Neil Marshall with David Harbour.
In addition to its very poor reception at the box-office, Hellboy II – The legions of gold-cursed not cashing that $ 75 million in America, compared to 160 at the international (for a budget of 85 million), Guillermo del Toro is nicely seen pushed towards the exit because of the budget still more important that he asked for his last film.
It is thus a new departure, less expensive, which will be in 2019. The incorrigible Ron Perlman will be missed, but his choice of successor stirs up our curiosity. David Harbour will plant a demon much closer to the comics original of Mike Mignola.
The last photo of this reboot, unveiled by Empire, shows a Hellboy in the chest and the head torn from previous battles. The super-heroes has always balanced its appearance is rough and inner restlessness with a sense of humour, pungent, full of irony and a big heart. A character who seems so tailor-made for the performer of the Sherif of the Stranger Things to which are lent with the same qualities.

Neil Marshall and Mike Mignola (co-writer) have also announced that this new adaptation, in contrast to that of Guillermo del Toro, will be really violent (-17 years in the United States) and that it will make a bestiary of the monstrous, horror and super-natural, close to the original work. Neil Marshall is expressed in the columns of Empire to highlight the importance of the work of Mike Mignola for his film :
“Each time, it is always : “if in doubt, return to the source”. Some of the things are rather crazy. More violent, more bloody. It was not going to turn out with handcuffs to the wrists “.
The bloody B movie, Dog Soldiers to The Descent or Tales of Halloween, passing by the tv with Game of Thrones, Lost in space, Westworld and Hannibal, Neil Marshall has proven itself when it comes to horror and fantasy.
So we eagerly awaits the theatrical release of Hellboy on may 8, 2019.
