New ‘Hellboy’ Film Announced by Millennium; Begins Production Next Month

Hellboy is heading back to the big screen… again.

Following the disappointing 2019 reboot starring David Harbour, Millennium Media has announced that it is taking another crack at the fan-favorite comic book character. Per Deadline, Brian Taylor (Crank) will be directing the new film, whose title is confirmed as Hellboy: The Crooked Man. Production will begin next month in Bulgaria. Casting should be announced soon. The film will be R-rated.

Oh, and here’s something that might interest fans. For the first time ever, Mike Mignola, creator of the comics, has penned the script alongside his Dark Horse comics collaborator Chris Golden. The story will “expand Hellboy’s world through one of the most beloved issues of the comic series.” The comic version of Hellboy: The Crooked Man was released in 2008.

The new film will see “Hellboy and a rookie BPRD agent stranded in 1950s rural Appalachia. There, they discover a small community haunted by witches, led by a local devil with a troubling connection to Hellboy’s past: the Crooked Man.”

The Crooked Man is a departure from all previous Hellboy films where Mike Mignola and the creator of the comics will finally shepherd an authentic version of his stories and characters in film form,” said Millennium Media’s President Jeffrey Greenstein. “This is the first in the series of films that will captivate audiences in familiar (and new) ways. Brian Taylor is an expert across the board, and I couldn’t think of a better person to bring this story to life to show our audience this different and original Hellboy slate of films.”

No release date for Hellboy: The Crooked Man has been announced at this time.

What do you think about another Hellboy reboot? Do you think this one can match the quality of the original live-action films?
