Re: R RATED HELLBOY MOVIE!!!!!!!
Yeah I can totally understand the bitter-sweetness in this announcement. I adore Del Toro's two movies but the reality is he's lost a lot of sway in Hollywood because of his excessive budgets. His movies may look absolutely stunning on screen but they don't really make the studios a lot of profit. So I can't really say I am too surprised to see them opt for a reboot with a director who's able to do more with less.
David Harbour is actually an ingenious choice for Hellboy. I would of never of even thought of him for the role in the first place. But there's no denying he's got some massive shoes to fill.
Neil Marshall is a solid choice. As Ton has already pointed out he's responsible for some amazing episodes of certain big TV shows but his filmography ain't too shabby either. The Descent and Dog Soldiers are two tremendously underappreciated horror flicks. He's got the experience for the material IMO. And now the freedom with R rating.
