Yesterday, news broke out that a "Hellboy" reboot is in the works over at Millennium and Dark Horse Entertainment. The studio is already in negotiations with producers Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin for a reboot that places "Stranger Things" star David Harbour in the front and center of all the action, the Hollywood Reporter revealed yesterday.

The film is set to be directed by English film director Neil Marshall, whose credits include "The Descent" (2005) and "Game of Thrones." The film is currently tagged as "Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen," and as per screenwriter Andrew Cosby, viewers should expect a "darker, more gruesome" version of the franchise that hit theaters in 2004.

David Harbour inherits 'Hellboy' role from Ron Perlman

"Hellboy" first made its way to the big screen back in 2004, when Revolution Studios and Dark Horse Entertainment, together with Universal Pictures released the Guillermo del Toro-directed film with Ron Perlman as the titular character. The film did modestly well at the box office, earning $99.3 million with a $66 million budget.

A sequel titled "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" was released in 2008, earning$160.4 million on an $85 million budget. That was why it came as a surprise that a third film did not come to fruition after conflicting statements from Del Toro and Perlman over the course of several years. Ultimately, the discontinuation of the series came down to the lack of funding for the third film and the fact that at the time, Del Toro was working on other projects, including "The Hobbit" and "Pacific Rim."

The director took to Twitter in February to announce that the third movie is not going to happen, implying that he won't be involved in any projects relating to the franchise.

Screenwriter Andrew Cosby hints at entirely new story for upcoming film

According to Screen Rant, the upcoming "Hellboy" reboot will see a different character to be portrayed by "Stranger Things" star David Harbour, who was recently rumored to be in the running to play Cable in "Deadpool 2" before Josh Brolin was cast.

Now that Harbour no longer concerns himself with "Deadpool 2," he's rising to the ranks to play the main character in the "Hellboy" reboot, which screenwriter Andrew Cosby says is "a darker, more gruesome version" of the character.

"Neil [Marshall] said from the very beginning that he wanted to walk a razor’s edge between horror and comic book movie," Cosby explained. "That’s what I was shooting for in the script, and precisely what Mignola does so well with the comics."
