Say What?! Mike Mignola Says There WILL Be Another Hellboy Movie!
In what may be the most shocking thing I’ve read this year, comic artist/writer Mike Mignola has just announced that there will be another Hellboy movie! On top of that, he reveals that it will be rated R and will be directed by The Descent‘s Neil Marshall.
Furthermore, he states that David Harbour (“Stranger Things”) will be playing the titular character! Per THR, “Millennium is in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin for a new installment that would reboot and relaunch the property.”
The film currently has a working title of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and is being written by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden, and Mignola himself.
This is especially surprising because a third film has been a wish for many fans of the series since 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Alas, earlier this year director Guillermo del Toro stated, “Hellboy 3 Sorry to report: Spoke [with] all parties. Must report that 100% the sequel will not happen. And that is to be the final thing about it.”
Now, this announcement from Mignola doesn’t state whether or not the film will be live-action. There have been two animated Hellboy films, so that’s always a possibility. However, no matter what comes from this, it’s incredibly exciting to hear that the idea of bringing Hellboy back to the world of cinema hasn’t left Mignola’s mind!
