Based on the acclaimed graphic novels by Mike Mignola, the story centers around Hellboy as he’s caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human and battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.
David Harbour (Stranger Things) stars as the title character in the upcoming film and is joined by Jovovich, Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods) as Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm (aka Professor Broom), Sasha Lane (American Honey) will play Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell (Hemlock Grove) will play the elder witch Ganeida, and Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0, LOST) as Major Ben Daimio.
Hellboy is directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) from a script by Andrew Cosby (Eureka), Christopher Golden and Mignola himself. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment, and is set to hit theaters on April 12, 2019.
