The Hellboy reboot that will star Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the title character may have found a home.
Lionsgate is in final negotiations to pick up the project, which is titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and has Neil Marshall on board to direct, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin are producing, as is Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.
Hellboy is a unique franchise in that so far each installment has been released by a different studio. Adapting the works of comic creator Mike Mignola, the first movie was made by Revolution Studios and released by Sony in 2004. The sequel, Hellboy: The Golden Army, was made by Universal and released in 2008.
Both movies were directed by Guillermo del Toro and starred Ron Perlman as a demon raised by a kind, and human, professor, working to fight supernatural evildoers for an organization called Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense.
Del Toro and Perlman tried to launch a third installment, but budgetary issues proved to be challenging and the producers decided to instead venture forward with a reboot.
Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen is eyeing a fall shoot.
