The reboot of the Hellboy franchise has been moving along fairly quickly. The new film, which will star David Harbour in the title role, is gearing up for a shoot early next year. And apparently they are doing make up tests right now. And so they’ve released the first official picture of Harbour as Hellboy.
My first impression is that the design looks a bit darker than the version sported by Ron Perlman in director Guillermo Del Toro’s two Hellboy films. As for the similarities, well, that’s because both iterations are sticking close to the original design from Mike Mignolia’s classic comic book series. D’uh.
Hellboy, which has lost its subtitle of Rise Of The Blood Queen, also stars Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Penelope Mitchell and Daniel Dae Kim and is slated for release late next year.
