The HELLBOY Reboot has found its Professor Broom and Blood Queen in Ian McShane and Milla Jovovich.
The Hellboy reboot, with the title Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, is progressing impressively as not only will Stranger Things‘ David Harbour play the demon-infant-turned-BPRD-agent, but American Gods‘ Ian McShane will be playing Professor Broom, the adoptive father of Hellboy, whose birth name Anung Un Rama.
This may seem like old news to some, however, new info just came out today regarding another addition to the cast.
Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich has joined the cast as the Queen of Blood, also previously known as Nimue and the Lady of the Lake.
Jovovich has been known to play awesome kickass heroines, including Leeloo in The Fifth Element and Alice in the Resident Evil franchise. We’re pretty sure she’ll be awesome playing a bloody villain against the big red-skinned good-hearted half-demon.
Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones, Westworld) is set to direct the movie, which is scheduled for a 2018 release.
