Ketchup Entertainment Acquires Rights To Next ‘Hellboy’

by Thomas Tuna

The Big Red Guy is warming up.

Hellboy: The Crooked Man–the next entry in the film franchise based on Mike Mignola’s fan-favorite comic book anti-hero–has been picked up by Ketchup Entertainment, according to a report on Deadline.

The film–which wrapped shooting in Bulgaria a few months ago–does not yet have a release window.

“We’re very excited by this acquisition,” Ketchup chief executive Gareth West said. “This film holds a special place in the hearts of fans worldwide, and we’re committed to preserving and building its legacy as we bring it to fans and new audiences.”

The Millennium Media feature–directed by Brian Taylor from a screenplay by Mignola and Chris Golden–stars Jack Kesy in the title role, along with Adeline Rudolph, Jefferson White, Joseph Marcell, Leah McNamara, Hannah Margetson and Martin Bassindale.

The film follows Hellboy as he becomes stranded in 1950s Appalachia with a rookie BPRD agent and runs across a small community “haunted by witches who are led by a local devil with a connection to Hellboy’s past–the Crooked Man.”

Hellboy debuted in San Diego Comic-Con Comics No. 2 back in 1993 before landing in several one-shot comics and miniseries. The character has already headlined three live-action films–two starring Ron Perlman (2004 and 2008) and a 2019 reboot with David Harbour.
