I wasn’t on set for this one but they have been nice enough to send me dailies and I have to say I have loved what I’ve been seeing. If fans have been waiting for a Hellboy film that is actually an adaptation of one of my stories I think they are finally going to get one.
Congratulations to director Brian Taylor and a really wonderful cast–And to co-writer Chris Golden who did so much to figure out how to give the studio what they wanted and still keep true to the heart and soul of THE CROOKED MAN, my favorite of the Hellboy stories.
I wish Richard Corben was still around to see this–They did a wonderful job bringing his really horrific character to life.
This isn’t the first wrap update on the film either. Adeline Rudolph, who stars in the reboot, revealed in an Instagram story that the film had wrapped production.
Hellboy: The Crooked Man does not have a release date as of yet. It is expected to arrive in late 2023 or early 2024 at the earliest.
