Yellowstone actor Jefferson White and Adeline Rudolph have joined The Crooked Man, Millennium Media’s new take on the comic book antihero.
White will star as Tom Ferrell and Rudolph will play Bobbie Jo Song alongside Jack Kesy in the earlier-announced role as Hellboy. Brian Taylor (Crank) will direct from a script penned by Hellboy comic book creator Mike Mignola and Chris Golden.
In The Crooked Man, which is set in 1950s rural Appalachia, Hellboy and a rookie Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD) agent discover a small community haunted by witches, led by the Crooked Man, a local devil with a troubling connection to Hellboy’s past.
White also had roles in Eileen, which recently had its world premiere at Sundance, and IFC Films’ God’s Country. He’s also set to appear in A24’s upcoming Civil War. Rudolph has credits like Netflix’s Resident Evil and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and The CW’s Riverdale. Her upcoming projects include Lionsgate’s Creepers.
Millennium Media bought the rights to Hellboy in 2018. The Eisner Award-winning Hellboy: The Crooked Man comic debuted in July 2008 to accompany the cinema release of Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
Millennium Media will produce The Crooked Man in association with Dark Horse Entertainment – A Nu Boyana Production, with Campbell Grobman Film. Producers for The Crooked Man include Mike Richardson, Jeffrey Greenstein, Jonathan Yunger, Les Weldon, Rob Van Norden and Yariv Lerner.
Mike Mignola, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, Tanner Mobley, Lati Grobman, Christa Campbell, Michael Muellner and Julia Muentefering are among the executive producers. Sam Schulte will co-produce on behalf of Millennium Media.
White is repped by The Gersh Agency and Principal Entertainment L.A. Rudolph is repped by APA and Luber Roklin Entertainment.
