Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot will feature R-rated practical FX

The last bits of news we heard on the upcoming HELLBOY reboot from director Neil Marshall and starring STRANGER THINGS' David Harbour was that original director Guillermo Del Toro gave the reboot his blessing, and that the new flick is set to start shooting this September.

Today we have news, courtesy of my favorite horror movie podcast POST MORTEM W/ MICK GARRIS, that director Neil Marshall plans to "take the cuffs off" and embrace the film's R-rating. He also plans to keep things as practical as possible.

Neil Marshall on HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD QUEEN:

We’ve been granted permission to do it R-rated, which for me is just like taking the cuffs off. It’s like, okay, so now we can just make the movie we want to make. Nobody’s going to stop us. So, that’s the main [difference]. And I’m sure, obviously, the success of things like Deadpool and Logan have not hurt that cause. But, also, when you go back the original material, it is kind of bloody, so I’m going to embrace that.

Neil Marshall on keeping practical FX:

It’s definitely going to be as practical as we can possibly make it. I love to do stuff in camera whenever I possibly can, and use CG as the amazing tool that it is, to enhance or expand upon the world, but not to use it to replace reality, when you can do it [for] real.

What do you think of Neil Marshall's ideas for the reboot of HELLBOY? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram!

HELLBOY: RISE OF THE BLOOD QUEEN is expected to be released in 2018.
