It appears that Hellboy has found himself a new home. On film at least. Following previous announcements that a new film – Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen – had found its director and star it appears that a studio is now in the mix to release the film.
Splash Report has broken the news that Lionsgate is in final takes to take on Hellboy. The studio is very publically searching for a new hit franchise following the end of The Hunger Games.
Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen is set to star David Harbour in the lead role. Neil Marshall has signed on to direct the script which was masterminded by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola. We also understand that Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin are producing the film alongside Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.
Hellboy first appeared on film in 2004 when Ron Perlman was in the lead role. Made for a $66m budget it was alb to make a cool $99m worldwide. The sequel – Hellboy 2: The Golden Army – hit cinemas in July of 2008 on a higher budget of $85m and went on to earn $160.3m worldwide.
Due to the lack of blockbuster success and poor reviews development of a third film died out. Director Guillermo Del Toro recently put the final nail in the coffin of Hellboy 3 shortly before the announcement of this new film.
