Big Red returns in the first trailer for HELLBOY: THE CROOKED MAN

Big Red returns in the first trailer for HELLBOY: THE CROOKED MAN

The first trailer for the new Hellboy movie is out Hellboy: The Crooked Manwhich gives us our first look Jack Kesy as Hellboy, and it’s definitely a different take on the character. But the story looks fun.

The film was directed by Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance AND Crank co-director Brian Taylor. The screenplay was written by the creator of the franchise Mike Mignola AND Chris Golden.

The story is based on the comic of the same name and in that story Hellboy teams up with a rookie BPRD agent named Tom Ferrell and they find themselves stranded in the rural Appalachians of the 1950s.

“There, they discover a small, witch-infested community, led by a local devil with a disturbing connection to Hellboy’s past: the Crooked Man.” The story will “expand the world of Hellboy through one of the most beloved issues of the comic series.”

Mignola previously spoke about the film as the most faithful adaptation to date, but we’ll just have to wait and see how fans react when they watch it.

While Kesy’s version of Hellboy isn’t the one we’re used to, The crooked man producer Les Weldon previously there had been talk of the possibility of choosing him for the role saying:

“We went on a long soul-searching expedition to find the right Hellboy, and we knew that this Hellboy was going to be a very moody, very dark, very disturbing movie. There’s no shine, nothing like that.

“And Jack, look, I had worked with Jack before, as had other guys in our company, and we came to the same conclusion: that kind of personality that he has would have worked very well for that movie.”

Mignola has previously spoken about the project and when talking about casting Kesy for the lead role, he said, “I’ve never met him [Kesy]. I’ve only seen pictures of it and I’ve seen it a little in movies.

“He definitely has the right look. Everyone who’s worked with him says he’s great. This thing is moving very quickly, so I think the fact that he’s great and available, he’s a bit of a know-it-all, but I just have to trust that everyone’s right.”

He also talked about the director Brian Taylor’S (Crank, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Gamer) dark and horror vision of the film that says:

“He’s going to make a horror movie, so it’s going to be nice. It’s going to be interesting. I read the new draft of the script yesterday and yeah, it’s definitely R.

“It’s the first Hellboy script I read and thought, ‘Oh, it’s a horror movie,’ which is what I wanted. Taylor doesn’t have a reputation as a horror film director.

“But so far we’ve had two horror filmmakers make Hellboy films and we’ve never made a horror film.

“For years, we’ve said, if you’re going to make a Hellboy movie, make it small. And the perfect story to do that is my favorite, ‘The Crooked Man.’ I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever written.

“It’s beautifully illustrated by Richard Corben, and it’s a solid story that doesn’t involve a million different characters. Everyone was on the same page from the beginning, ‘Yes, we want to do this.’

“In terms of budget, it’s good because it’s a low-budget story. It’s not the origin of Hellboy. It’s not Hellboy saving the world. It’s not huge. It’s a subtle, dark little folk horror story.”

The film also stars Adeline Rudolph (Resident Evil), Jefferson White (Yellow stone) AS Tom Ferrel, Leah McNamara like Effie Kolb, Joseph Marcellus like Reverend Watts, by Hannah Margetson as Cora Fisher, and Martin Bassindale like the Crooked Man, among others.

The film is scheduled for release later this year.
