‘American Gods’ Star Ian McShane Joins David Harbour in ‘Hellboy’ Reboot
Ian McShane, currently starring on Starz’s American Gods, is joining David Harbour in Lionsgate and Millennium’s Hellboy reboot.
Harbour is toplining as the demonic hero from the Mike Mignola comic books in a new feature, titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, that Neil Marshall, the horror director who broke out with The Descent and won raves for his work on Game of Thrones, is on board to direct.
The new story sees the hero squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind.
McShane will play Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Broom.
The project is eyeing a September start and will shoot in the UK and Bulgaria.
John Hurt was the perfect choice, McShane will be very different, but I’m happy that they got someone as good as him.
