Hellboy reboot releases Mike Mignola promo art, aims at a 2018 release

Mignola/del Toro split is apparent

By now you've probably heard that Hellboy 3 from Guillermo del Toro is dead, but there's an R-rated Hellboy reboot in the works titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. Director Neil Marshall (The Descent) is in talks to direct the reboot, with David Harbour (Stranger Things) in the title role. The screenplay for Rise of the Blood Queen is by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden, and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.

Some official promo art for the Hellboy reboot was spotted at this year's Cannes Film Festival. The poster features a proposed release date of 2018, which means the movie will likely go into production this year. This makes me wonder how long Mignola has been mulling a new direction for his character. As I've mentioned before, even though I enjoyed the del Toro's Hellboy movies and Ron Perlman's take on the character, I'm also interested in seeing a different cinematic take on Hellboy and the BPRD that might be closer to Mignola's vision and tone.

You can check out the promo art for Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen in the gallery. I hope we find a higher res version of it to share--blotchy red isn't a good look for big red.
