Storyline: Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.
Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
At first, the project was presented as ‘Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen’, a title that made clear the presence of the evil Queen of Blood, a character who will give life to Milla Jovovich. Halfway through production, and to accentuate the character of the project’s reboot, it was simply changed to ‘Hellboy’, just like Del Toro’s film with Perlman as the protagonist of 2004. David Harbor, known for embodying the sheriff in the series’ Stranger Things’, has been in charge of spending hours in makeup to become the good of Hellboy.
