Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is one of the filmmakers with a real trademark style and flare. It was that style that he brought to his two Hellboy films, and while he tried his best to get another film off the ground, it just wasn’t meant to be. Ron Perlman is no longer taking on the role, and in his place is Stranger Things star David Harbour.
Up until this point, del Toro has been largely silent on the casting, but in a recent interview with ScreenGeek, he shares a few words when asked his opinion on Harbour’s casting:
“I mean, I like him. I don’t know him and I’m not involved with the movie. But I sure wish them luck, man. He’s a great guy.”
A man of few words, it seems — though we can’t exactly blame him. He put his heart and soul into those other two Hellboy films, and despite his greatest efforts, was not able to get a third one going. He may not have any hard feelings about the whole deal — He is riding high on The Shape of Water reactions, after all — but you never know.
The new reboot is set to star David Harbour, with The Descent Director Neil Marshall at the helm! To top it all off, they’re going for some real R-rated flavor that fans of the comic will likely be happy to see.
Are you still bummed del Toro won’t be involved in this reboot, or are you happy to see it getting made in its current iteration? Let us know down below!
