Hellboy: all the updates on the R-rated reboot

Share this story

Hellboy is coming back to theaters with a new, R-rated film helmed by Neil Marshall, known for directing The Descent and episodes of Game of Thrones.

Based on the comic book series by Mike Mignola, Hellboy is about a demon adopted by soldiers during World War II, who helps the government combat supernatural threats. The series has already received one adaptation from Guillermo del Toro, who directed Hellboy in 2004, and a sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army in 2008, starring Ron Perlman as the titular demon. While Del Toro worked to film a third installment of his trilogy, those plans never materialized.
