Hellboy, the demonic comic book hero-turned- Guillermo del Toro film franchise, is poised to return to the big-screen, this time without the filmmaker at the helm.
Millennium is in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin for a new installment that would reboot and relaunch the property. Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment is also producing.
Neil Marshall, the horror director who broke out with The Descent and won raves for his work on Game of Thrones, is in talks to direct the project, which has a working title of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen and has a script by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
Del Toro is not involved nor is Ron Perlman, the actor who inhabited the red-skinned cigar-chomping devil in the two previous installments.
Rather, David Harbour, the Stranger Things star, is in talks play Hellboy.

I loved the look and tone of the first pair of movies but Del Toro screwed up the Hellboy/Liz relationship. It wasn't necessary. And the plot of HB2 was more PAN'S LABYRINTH 2 and rather than a HB movie. I am looking forward to a pack-to-basics flick.
