American Honey star Sasha Lane joins David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, and Ian McShane for the upcoming Hellboy reboot.
The Hollywood Reporter notes Sasha Lane “is in final negotiations to join the Hellboy reboot.” Lane will take on the role of Alice Monaghan. In the Hellboy comics by Mike Mignola, Alice is an Irish woman who is rescued by Hellboy from faeries who inhabit the Daoine Sidhe. She is gifted with some supernatural abilities from her time with faeries. It’s unclear how the reboot will adapt the character.
Harbour will take on the titular character who will be guided by Ian McShane’s Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, Hellboy’s adoptive father. The two and presumably Lane’s character will do battle against Milla Jovovich’s Blood Queen. However, it has not been confirmed that Jovovich will take on the role of Blood Queen.
The villain of the movie is described as a “medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind.”
Horror director and Game of Thrones veteran Neil Marshall will be helming the project. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will be producing the project alongside Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson. Filming should begin in September.
This will be Sasha Lane’s first major studio project. However, after American Honey she lined up a number of indie projects including Miseducation of Cameron Post with Chloe Moretz, Shotgun with Maika Monroe, and Shoplifters of the World with Joe Manganiello.
