Several films are getting the reboot treatment nowadays, with "Fantastic Four" and "Ghostbusters" leading the pack (albeit with negative reactions). "Resident Evil," which recently concluded its run, is also set to relaunch a reboot, while another comic book character is making his way back to the big screen. Mike Mignola's "Hellboy" reboot will star "Stranger Things" actor David Harbour in the titular role and will be directed by Neil Marshall of "Dog Soldiers," "Doomsday," and "Centurion" fame.

There's no release date set for the upcoming film just yet, but reports indicate that it will definitely be R-rated. Marshall recently opened up about the role CG effects will play in his upcoming outing, as he's known for using camera effects to achieve a particular stunt.

Neil Marshall won't entirely depend on CG for 'Hellboy' reboot

The "Hellboy" reboot, which is subtitled "Rise of the Blood Queen," will be written by Mike Mignola, Andrew Cosby, and Christopher Golden, with Neil Marshall at the helm.

Marshall opened up to Mick Garris during the "Post Mortem" podcast, saying that while he does value the contribution of CG effects to films, he's still going "as practical as we can" when it comes to stunts and the like. He explained that they'll definitely use CG just to "enhance or expand upon the world, but not to...replace reality."

Director will 'embrace' the nature of the original material

More than just relying on the "practical" side of camera tricks, "Hellboy" reboot director Neil Marshall is also looking forward to staying true to the original material and possibly making it an R-rated film. He likened the R-rating to "taking the cuffs off" and just creating the film they would like to make.

He explained that they're not going to make it R-rated on purpose, "but if it happens to come out that way, just because of my own sensibilities, then fine." The director mused, "When you go back the original material, it is kind of bloody, so I’m going to embrace that." Marshall shared that he's very well aware of the success of recent R-rated films "Logan" and "Deadpool."

David Harbour talks man bun and Hellboy's look

In a recent chat with The Hollywood Reporter (via Movie Pilot), "Hellboy" reboot star David Harbour talked about how he's trying to embody the character.

He said he's "going to try and do the man bun this summer" and said in a disclaimer that if anyone does see him sport a man bun in New York, "just know that I’m not from Brooklyn, I’m actually just working in my weird subconscious way on Hellboy." The film doesn't have a release date set at the moment, but make sure to bookmark this page for the latest.
