Milla Jovovich Lands Role as Hellboy’s ‘Blood Queen’

According to Deadline, Milla Jovovich will appear as the title villain in Neil Marshall’s Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

Jovovich is no stranger to horror (or action films for that matter), recently ending her popular Resident Evil series.

Jovovich will  join Stranger Things‘ David Harbour as Hellboy, and Ian McShane, who was just cast as “Big Red’s” mentor Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, in the upcoming film.

Andrew Cosby is also working on the latest draft of a script by Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Aron Coleite. read more

Ian McShane will Portray Professor Trevor Bruttenholm in Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Ian McShane will portray Professor Trevor Bruttenholm in the upcoming Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen film.

Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm (who was originally portrayed by the late John Hurt in the first two Hellboy films) is often seen as Hellboy’s adoptive father and plays an integral role in “Big Red’s” life as well as in the formation of the B.P.R.D. in the original film and the source material. Bruttenholm has even starred in some of his own comic stories, most notably in B.P.R.D.: 1946, B.P.R.D.: 1947, and B.P.R.D.: 1948 which establishes much of the Hellboy mythos for the entire Hellboy series. read more

‘Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen’ Director Neil Marshall Promises R-Rated Content and Traditional Special Effects

Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) recently spoke to fellow horror director Mick Garris on his podcast (Post Mortem with Mick Garris) about his career in film and television and also revealed some exciting news about his upcoming film, Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

Garris asked Marshall about the R-rating and if he was going to be “…allowed to be more extreme” to which the director replied, “We’ve been granted permission to do it R-rated, which for me is just like taking the cuffs off.”  While Marshall did state that he is going to exercise some restraint, and that he was “…not going to force it to be R-rated”, he did follow-up on his initial comments, saying that “…obviously, the success of things like Deadpool and Logan have not hurt that cause. But, also, when you go back the original material, it is kind of bloody, so I’m going to embrace that.” read more
