Neil Marshall‘s Hellboy reboot Rise of the Blood Queen has added a new cast member. Ian McShane will play Professor Bloom, the titular character’s adoptive father, in the upcoming movie, according to a report from THR. The character was portrayed by John Hurt in the previous incarnation of the franchise.
The grim and gritty R-rated reboot that dashed all hopes of a Hellboy 3 is reportedly set to start filming this Fall, which means it is almost too late to forget about this whole thing and get Ron Perlman back.
Well, we tried. David Harbour it is, then.
Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s expected to come out sometime in 2018.
