Hellboy is back to fight another day! Millennium Media is currently working on a new live-action movie, which Deadline confirmed today.


Brian Taylor (Crank, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) has come on board to direct the movie titled Hellboy: The Crooked Man, based on the Hellboy mini-series from 2008. According to Deadline, the movie will “expand Hellboy’s world through one of the most beloved issues of the comic series.”


“The new film will see Hellboy and a rookie BPRD agent stranded in 1950s rural Appalachia. There, they discover a small community haunted by witches, led by a local devil with a troubling connection to Hellboy’s past: the Crooked Man.”


Hellboy creator Mike Mignola wrote the script for Hellboy: The Crooked Man alongside Christopher Golden.


“The Crooked Man is a departure from all previous Hellboy films where Mike Mignola and the creator of the comics will finally shepherd an authentic version of his stories and characters in film form,” said Millennium Media’s President Jeffrey Greenstein. “This is the first in the series of films that will captivate audiences in familiar (and new) ways. Brian Taylor is an expert across the board, and I couldn’t think of a better person to bring this story to life to show our audience this different and original Hellboy slate of films.”


There is no word yet if Ron Perlman or David Harbour, who have both played Hellboy, will reprise the role or if we will see a new actor play “Big Red.”


Millennium Media and Dark Horse Entertainment are producing.
