Millennium Media recently wrapped production on brand new live action movie Hellboy: The Crooked Man, and Deadline brings us the latest update this afternoon.
Ketchup Entertainment, the company that released Robert Rodriguez’s Hypnotic earlier this year, has acquired the rights to the upcoming Hellboy: The Crooked Man.
“We are very excited by this latest acquisition, this film holds a special place in the hearts of fans worldwide and we are committed to preserving and building its legacy as we bring the film to fans and new audiences,” says Ketchup Entertainment CEO Gareth West. “We are confident that our collaboration with Jeffrey Greenstein and the exceptional team at Millennium Media will enable us to achieve just that.”
“At a time when content is never more in demand, it’s exciting to partner with a group who is not only passionate about movies, but who are also stepping up to distribute the types of commercial films that we believe audiences crave. Despite all of the changes in the marketplace, it’s refreshing to start building a pipeline with Ketchup and we are excited to build upon this first film together,” adds Greenstein.
No word yet on Ketchup Entertainment’s release plans. Stay tuned.
Jack Kesy (The Strain, Deadpool 2) will be playing the next big screen incarnation of Hellboy, taking over from previous performers Ron Perlman and David Harbour.
Jefferson White (Yellowstone) will also star as Tom Ferrell and Adeline Rudolph (Resident Evil) will play Bobbie Jo Song in the upcoming reboot.
Brian Taylor (Crank, Gamer, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Mom and Dad) directed the movie for Millennium, based on a Hellboy mini-series from 2008. The story is said to “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.”
Of particular note, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola wrote the script for Hellboy: The Crooked Man alongside Christopher Golden, which gives this project serious credibility.
Millennium Media is producing the new movie alongside Dark Horse Entertainment.
