Ian McShane joins Hell­boy re­boot

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Ian McShane has joined the cast of the 'Hell­boy' re­boot. The 74-year-old ac­tor has been cast to play Pro­fes­sor Broom, the sci­en­tist who adopts the tit­u­lar de­mon child, in the Neil Mar­shall re­boot, the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter has re­vealed. The part of Pro­fes­sor Broom was orig­i­nally brought to life by the late John Hurt in the Ron Perl­man movies 'Hell­boy' and 'Hell­boy 2: The Golden Army'. Perl­man is not set to reprise his role as the de­monic anti-hero in 'Hell­boy: Rise of the Blood Queen', but 'Stranger Things' star David Har­bour is on board for the tit­u­lar role in the re­boot and re­vealed the film will start shoot­ing this Septem­ber. David pre­vi­ously said: "We're sup­posed to go in Septem­ber, I hope. It's good. It's a whole new thing. "I'd al­ways been a fan of the comics and there's a darker tone to it and I think in the cli­mate we have now there's kind of a darker ... a de­sire for more of that ... the script is good and this guy Neil Mar­shall is di­rect­ing who's re­ally good and the aes­thetic is great. "So of­ten, the su­per­hero movies can be re­ally fun and I want this to be re­ally fun, but I also want it to be more of a char­ac­ter piece and more about this dude's strug­gle. "I think it could be in­ter­est­ing. I don't know, I just hope we make a good movie. We'll see. You be the judge!" The up­com­ing project has been in the pipe­line for some time, but the re­boot is set to hap­pen with­out orig­i­nal direc­tor Guillermo del Toro, who couldn't agree with the stu­dio's vi­sion for the movie. In­stead, Mar­shall who worked on the likes of 'The De­scent' and 'Game of Thrones' - is tak­ing charge of the film.
