Hellboy is an upcoming American supernatural superhero film based on the Dark Horse Comics character of the same name, distributed by Lionsgate. The film is directed by Neil Marshall and stars David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Brian Gleeson, Daniel Dae Kim, and Sophie Okonedo. It is a reboot of the Hellboy film series and is the third live-action installment in the film series.
The project began as a sequel to Hellboy II: The Golden Army, with Mignola and Andrew Cosby writing the script. Guillermo del Toro declined to return to direct, preferring to direct his own script, and Ron Perlman refused to return without Del Toro's involvement. The project was turned into an R-rated reboot after Marshall was hired as the director. Principal photography began in September 2017 in the United Kingdom and Bulgaria and ended in December 2017. Hellboy is scheduled to be released on April 12, 2019.
