The Millennium Media film is directed by Brian Taylor from a screenplay by Mignola and Chris Golden. The cast includes Jack Kesy in the title role, along with Adeline Rudolph and Jefferson White.
The new feature finds Hellboy stranded in 1950s rural Appalachia with a rookie BPRD agent, where they discover a small community “haunted by witches–led by a local devil with a troubling connection to Hellboy’s past: the Crooked Man,” according to the synopsis.
Mignola seems to be pleased with this incarnation of the Big Red Guy. “They sent me the dailies, and I have to say I love what I’ve been seeing,” he said. “If fans have been waiting for a Hellboy film that’s actually an adaptation of one of my stories, I think they’re finally going to get one.”
Hellboy first appeared in San Diego Comic-Con Comics No. 2 back in 1993 before earning his own one-shot comics and miniseries. The character has starred in three live-action films–two with Ron Perlman (2004 and 2008) and a 2019 reboot with David Harbour.
