After a casting controversy that ultimately resulted in actor Ed Skrein (Deadpool) exiting the latest Hellboy film, the upcoming reboot has finally found its Major Ben Daimio. Former “Hawaii Five-O” star Daniel Dae Kim is now in talks to play the B.P.R.D.’s resident werejaguar. His deal has not yet been finalized, but is expected to be very soon.
Daniel Dae Kim joins a cast that already includes David Harbour (“Stranger Things“), Ian McShane (“American Gods“), and Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil). This reboot of the popular comic book franchise is being helmed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Doomsday) and is expected to begin filming next month in Europe. The revamp will not be an origin tale, but instead a new story focusing on the titular hero’s battle against Nimue, the Blood Queen. Daimio will, of course, be at his side.
Hellboy is based upon the comics by Mike Mignola. It is directed by Neil Marshall, from a screenplay by Aron Coleite, Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden, and Mike Mignola. The picture is produced by Larry Gordon, Lloyd Levin, Mike Mignola, and Mike Richardson. The film stars David Harbour as “Anung Un Rama/Hellboy’, Ian McShane as ‘Trevor Bruttenholm/Professor Broom’, Sasha Lane as ‘Alice Monaghan’, Daniel Dae Kim ‘Major Ben Daimio’, Milla Jovovich as ‘Nimue the Blood Queen’, and Penelope Mitchell as ‘Ganeida’.
Hellboy is currently expected to arrive in theaters sometime in 2018.
