“Stranger Things” star David Harbour has confirmed to Variety that he’s finished filming the reboot of the “Hellboy” franchise in which he takes on the title role.
Neill Marshall is directing the project, previously titled “Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen,” based on Mike Mignola’s iconic comics. The 42-year-old actor got into fighting shape for the film and spoke of the difficulty preparing for it: “It was hard. I’m 40 years old, and I’m running around punching giants.”
With the movie recently wrapping, Harbour is welcoming the chance to get his dad bod back so he can play Chief Hopper again in “Stranger Things” saying: “I’ve already started the donut training. Six donuts a day. We’ll get there, folks.”
Though the filming is over, it will spend the entire run of 2018 in post-production with the R-rated movie not due for release until January 2019. Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich, and Daniel Dae Kim co-star.
