Milla Jovovich set to be the villain in Hellboy reboot

August 10th, 2017 by Marc Comments

We reported last night that Hellboy has a new ‘father’ in the shape of Ian McShane (here) in the upcoming Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

And now we have the Blood Queen herself, it seems.

Director Neil Marshall will likely have Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich in the role as the actress is in final talks for the gig.

She will join the aforementioned McShane as Professor Bloom along with Stranger Things star David Harbour as Hellboy.

Not a lont is known about the movie, which is expected to film as early as next month, except that it will see the ol’ right hand of doom fighting a medieval sorceress who, as always, wants to kill us all and rule the world.

Jovovich will be that sorceress in case you hadn’t guessed.

Thoughts on this casting? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
