Los Angeles [USA], May 9 (ANI): The 'Hellboy' is coming back! According to The Hollywood Reporter, the demonic comic book hero turned Guillermo del Toro film franchise, is poised to return to the big screen, but without the filmmaker helming it. The 'Stranger Things' star, David Harbour is in talks to play the role of 'Hellboy.' Neil Marshall, the horror director who broke out with 'The Descent' and was applauded for his work on 'Game of Thrones', is attached to direct the project, which has a working title of 'Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.' The project has a script by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and 'Hellboy' creator Mike Mignola. Millennium is in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin for a new installment that would reboot and relaunch the property. Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment is also producing. If a deal is made, Millennium would become the third company to make a 'Hellboy' movie in as many releases. Del Toro co-wrote and directed the first adaptation, which was made by Revolution Studios and released by Sony in 2004. The movie made 60 million USD domestically (another 40 million USD internationally, asterisked by the fact that this was the era before international box-office dominated performance) on a budget of 66 million USD.(ANI)
