Ron Perlman says Hellboy is still an open wound

Director Neil Marshall's upcoming HELLBOY reboot starring David Harbour as the titular red guy is all set to punch its ungodly way into a theater near you this coming April. We already know that original Hellboy Ron Perlman is not too excited for the reboot, but how does he feel now that some time has passed? Not much better, unfortunately.

Ron Perlman recently told Collider:

I felt like we owed the fans closure, and there were too many people moving in too many other directions and I just couldn't pull it off. So if you ask me about it, it's kind of still an open wound.

As you might imagine, personally I think it really sucks that Perlman feels so raw about this new take on the character. I hate to see such a winning personality as Perlman left out in the cold. That said, the new movie does look pretty badass thus far (see poster below) and I can only hope Perlman has the chance to enjoy it once it hits.

This new take on HELLBOY is said to be an R-rated film that will be darker and more horrific than the previous films. Written by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden, Aron Coleite, and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, this one finds 

Hellboy, along with his team of paranormal researchers, trying to save the world from a medieval sorceress who wants to destroy humankind. 

Church and Harbour's co-stars include Milla Jovovich as the villainous Nimue, Queen of Blood, Ian McShane as Hellboy's mentor Professor Broom, Sasha Lane as his love interest Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as the elder witch Ganeida, Daniel Dae Kim as Major Ben Daimio (who can turn into a jaguar), Sophie Okonedo as the seer Lady Hatton, Alistair Petrie as Lord Adam Glaren of the supernatural mystery investigating Osiris Club, and Brian Gleeson as the wizard Merlin. The HELLBOY reboot recently got pushed back from a January release date to April 12, 2019.
