What in the world? Another remake of “Hellboy” is based on “The Crooked Man.”
A Hellboy reboot is in progress.
The Millenium Media film, titled Hellboy: The Crooked Man, will start filming in March. The TheCrankfilms director Brian Taylor has been chosen to helm the picture. Mike Mignola, the author of the Hellboy comics, has also been tapped to collaborate with Chris Golden on the script.
Based on the same-named comic book miniseries from 2008, Hellboy: The Crooked Man will be released. Hellboy, a summoned demon turned reluctant hero, and a rookie agent stranded in 1950s rural Appalachia will appear in the next movie. They find a small town there that is haunted by witches who are commanded by a local devil who has an unsettling prior connection to our protagonist.
According to Jeffrey Greenstein, president of Millennium Media, “The Crooked Manis a break from all prior Hellboy films where Mike Mignola and the creator of the comics will finally shepherd a real rendition of his narrative and characters in film form.”
This is the first of a series of movies that will enthrall viewers in both expected and unexpected ways. As a multifaceted expert, Brian Taylor is the ideal choice to bring this tale to life and introduce our audience to the unique and original Hellboy film series.
The titular character has not yet been cast with an actor. Ron Perlman previously performed the part in the 2004 original and its 2008 sequel, Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). A 2019 revival that many fans viewed as a disaster included David Harbour in the lead role.
