‘Hellboy’ Reboot in the Works Without Guillermo del Toro

Well, this may or may not be the news you were looking forward to hearing but a Hellboy reboot is happening… just without Guillermo del Toro or Ron Perlman. What do you guys think about that?

According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Millennium is in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin for a new installment that would reboot and relaunch the property. Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment is also producing.

Neil Marshall, the horror director who broke out with The Descentand won raves for his work on Game of Thrones, is in talks to direct the project, which has a working title of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and has a script by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

Del Toro is not involved, nor is Ron Perlman, the actor who inhabited the red-skinned, cigar-chomping devil in the two previous installments.”

It would definitely be weird picturing someone else playing Hellboy other than Ron Perlman, but the man they have lined up for the job could just possibly be the perfect one –  David Harbour. We loved him in Stranger Things and think he has great potential to pull this off.

We know some will be disappointed in this these while others may be ecstatic about David Harbour, so let us know your thoughts in the comments and who you think should be the next Hellboy.
