Hellboy’s David Harbour describes the reboot as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary”

As Lionsgate gears up to begin production on its R-rated Hellboy reboot, new lead David Harbour has been chatting to Variety about the film, describing it as a “monster movie that’s dark and scary” and explaining what drew him to the project.

“Superhero movies are the mythos of modern America,” said the Stranger Things star. “The ancient Greeks had Agamemnon, Achilles, and Cressida, and we have Captain America, Iron Man, and Superman. They are mythos, so I wanted to be involved in that conversation. These movies have been of a certain brand. With Deadpool and Logan, they are trying to do different things. So we are trying to do our own brand of that. I was really excited by that concept — to make a real monster movie that’s dark and scary and about the end of the world.”

Blu-ray Review – American Gods: Season One

Ricky Church reviews American Gods season one…

For many years, Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods was thought to be unfilmable. It was felt the novel was too grandiose for the big screen, with too many characters and too much story to fit into one 2-hour or 2-hour plus film. Almost 20 years later, Michael Green and Bryan Fuller thought to develop it as a television series for Starz starring Ricky Whittle (The 100) as protagonist Shadow Moon and Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as the mysterious Mr. Wednesday.

The 8-episode first season adapts roughly a third of the novel. Shadow Moon is released early from prison after learning his wife has died in an unfortunate car accident while having an affair with his best friend. Adrift, he meets the mysterious and enigmatic con-man Mr. Wednesday, who offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. The two begin

Hellboy reboot given early 2019 release date

Simon Brew Dec 1, 2017

The new Hellboy film is confirmed for a January 2019 release.

It’s official: the reboot of Hellboy is coming in just over a year. Lionsgate has confirmed a Us release date of January 11th 2019 for the new movie, that sees David Harbour take over the title role, previously played on the big screen by Ron Perlman. The movie is already well into production, and we suspect if all goes to plan that Lionsgate will want a new franchise here.

The film is being directed by Neil Marshall, and the supporting cast includes Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane and Daniel Dae Kim. Mike Mignola, Andrew Cosby and Chirstopher Golden have penned the screenplay for the movie.

We'll keep you posted as we hear more about it...

Holy Hell: See the First Photo of Stranger Things Star David Harbour as Hellboy

Image Source: Lionsgate and Getty / J. Kempin The first official look at the Hellboy reboot arrived in September, and we have to say that we're still pleasantly surprised. Stranger Things star David Harbour is taking over for Ron Perlman in the film, due out in 2018, and it looks like the character has gotten a few updates to how he looked in the 2004 and 2008 originals. The demonic hero appears to have ditched his trademark trenchcoat and grown out his hair, for starters. And how about that Right Hand of Doom? Instead of the traditional stone fist that Hellboy uses to battle the occult, the new one looks like it's made out of some kind of metal (and has taken quite the beating). In addition to Harbour, the reboot stars Milla Jovovich as Nimue the Blood Queen, Merlin's consort who wants to bring about the end of the world (Nbd). Hellboy journeys

When It Comes to the Hellboy Reboot, the Devil's in the Details

Image Source: Lionsgate Despite the fact that the most recent Hellboy movie only just came out in 2008, a reboot is already in the works. The hot new take on the popular comic-book series that first hit shelves in 1993 promises to be very different from the original cinematic adaptation, originally helmed by Guillermo del Toro. This time around, the creative minds behind the project are starting from scratch. Curious about what's already been locked down? We've gathered all the intel, from the writers to the release date. 1. The Star No, Ron Perlman is not returning to reprise his role as the demonic titular character. Back in May, when the reboot was first announced, Stranger Things star David Harbour was already attached to the project. We're here for it. Just saying. 2.

Hellboy Reboot Gets a 2019 Release Date

Hellboy Reboot Gets a 2019 Release Date
Hellboy will be making his way back to the big screen in just over a year. Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment, who have partnered for the production of the upcoming Hellboy reboot, have locked down a January 11, 2019, release date for the movie. This date was initially reported back in September but, at the time, Lionsgate said that the date was inaccurate and that no date had been decided on. Apparently, they liked the date anyway and have placed Hellboy as the first highly-anticipated movie to be released in 2019.

January, historically, has been something of a dumping ground for studios. However, in recent years, more and more blockbuster-level movies are being released and studios are having a tougher time cramming them into the summer movie season or desirable holiday release dates. So, what used to be a wholly terrible month for movie fans has seen more quality releases in recent years. Hellboy

Bryan Fuller and Michael Green exit American Gods season 2 as showrunners

In a bit of surprising news, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are leaving Starz’s American Gods as the series’ showrunners. They will no longer be part of the show going forward despite its active development for the second season.

American Gods premiered on Starz earlier this Spring and earned a quick renewal after it became a ratings hit. The reason why Fuller and Green have exited the series hasn’t been confirmed yet, though Deadline reports it is because of the series’ budget. According to them, the first season’s budget had grown to Game of Thrones levels and Dante di Lorento, the new chief of American Gods‘ producer FremantleMedia North America, wanted to cut the second season’s budget, leading to Fuller and Green’s departure.

Despite their exit, Fuller and Green have apparently written more than half the episodes for the 10-episode second season, which Starz is aiming for a mid-2018 premiere.

'Hellboy' Reboot Sets 2019 Release Date

'Hellboy' Reboot Sets 2019 Release Date
Hellboy is just a little over a year from returning to theaters.

Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have set a release date of Jan. 11, 2019 for the reboot that stars David Harbour as the wise-cracking, well-meaning half-demon. The Descent and Game of Thrones' helmer Neil Marshall is directing the project, which also stars Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim.

Hellboy creator Mike Mignola is penning the script with Andrew Cosby and Christopher Golden.

‘Ozark,’ ‘Smilf,’ and 5 More Shows That Could Really Benefit from an Awards Boost

‘Ozark,’ ‘Smilf,’ and 5 More Shows That Could Really Benefit from an Awards Boost
Whether or not award shows like the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards have an immediate impact on viewership, a strong night at either (or both) can drastically affect the future of a series. Low-rated shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “Mozart in the Jungle,” or even “30 Rock” and “Arrested Development,” may not have earned follow-up seasons without the repeated embrace of the HFPA, SAG, and other appreciative awards shows that boosted their profile (and their respective networks’).

What matters, in the end, is more seasons; more work; more of what at least someone considers to be TV’s best of the best. The fact that a golden sphere on top of a podium or a bronze statue of a performer can contribute to talented creators continuing their passion projects is pretty special.

‘American Gods’ Bloodbath: Showrunners Bryan Fuller, Michael Green Depart in Shakeup

‘American Gods’ Bloodbath: Showrunners Bryan Fuller, Michael Green Depart in Shakeup
FremantleMedia North America has made a massive shift at the helm of its signature scripted series, “American Gods.” Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, who adapted the series from the Neil Gaiman novel, are departing the show, and it’s unclear how that might impact production on Season 2.

According to multiple insiders, Fremantle had a falling out with Fuller and Green due to a debate over budgets. One noted that Fremantle wasn’t factoring season-to-season cost increases, as well as an bump in the exchange rate with Canada, where the show is filmed. Ultimately, that would have meant a cut in the show’s episodic budget, which is already high because it doesn’t have any standing sets. Budget concerns forced an impasse between both sides, ultimately leading to the decision to part ways.

Both Fuller and Green have busy plates beyond “Gods,” which may have also led to the change.
