Ian McShane Joins Hellboy Reboot

Ian McShane has joined the Hellboy reboot, titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. McShane joins Stranger Things star David Harbour and director Neil Marshall (The Descent).

McShane will portray Professor Trevor “Broom” Bruttenholm, a role previously played by the late great John Hurt in the Guillermo del Toro series.

Ian McShane has meanwhile been killing it in television, appearing as Mr. Wednesday in American Gods and a one-off appearance in an episode of Season 6’s Game of Thrones.

Hellboy is based off the incredible comic series by Mike Mignola, which if you haven’t read you should definitely check out. It’s dark, humourous with a simple art style that is appealing to the eye. 

Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen is set to start shooting next month, but no word as yet as who will be playing the “Blood Queen”.
