Ian McShane (“Deadwood,” “American Gods”) has been cast as Hellboy’s adoptive father Professor Trevor Bruttenholm (aka. Professor Broom) in the upcoming “Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen” reboot at Lionsgate and Millennum.
David Harbour takes on the role of the demonic hero from the Mike Mignola comics in a film helmed by Neil Marshall (“The Descent,” “Game of Thrones”).
The story sees the hero squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind. McShane will take on the role played by John Hurt in the previous incarnation of the franchise.
Filming aims to begin in September in the UK and Bulgaria. Mike Richardson, Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin are producing.
