"Hellboy" Reboot just got Ed Skrein from "Deadpool" and "Game of Thrones" as one of its cast. With this, the actor will be joining David Harbour who will play as the demonic hero from the Mike Mignola comic books in a new story and feature.
Aside from Skrein, the latest reports from Hollywood Reporter confirmed that this new "Hellboy" Reboot will be directed by "Game of Thrones" helmer Neil Marshall. They will also be joined by Ian McShane who will take the role of the hero's adoptive father and Milla Jovovich who will play the villainess who is also a medieval sorceress out to destroy the world.
With his inclusion in "Hellboy" Reboot, Skrein will take the role of Major Ben Daimio, a rugged military member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. In the story, he can turn into a jaguar when he is in pain or angered and his power came from a supernatural encounter.
It was likewise reported that "Hellboy" Reboot will start filming this September in locations that will include Bulgaria and the U.K. the producers of the said film include Lloyd Levin and Larry Gordon as well as Mike Richardson of the Dark Horse Entertainment.
It can be recalled that Skrein played the villain named Ajax in "Deadpool" which was a hit last 2016 as it made $783 million across the globe. Apart from that hit film, he also joined 2015's "The Transporter Refueled" as well as "Alita: Battle Angel" which will be released in summer of 2018.
Meanwhile, according to The Collider, Harbour gave some spoilers and details about this new "Hellboy" Reboot and he confirmed that this film will not be telling all about the story of the origin of the character. Instead, the plot will take its link from "Raiders of the Lost Ark".
Despite this turn in the plot, "Hellboy" Reboot offers another extraordinary challenge in that latest yet very striking adaptation. It was also claimed that this new film will be different from the first one as Ron Perlman' take on this has not been seen by many yet. Surely, the new franchise will take the viewers to new ideas regarding the origin of the main character.
