According to Deadline, Milla Jovovich is in final talks to join Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot as the villainess Blood Queen. If all goes well, she will be joining Stranger Things‘ David Harbour as Hellboy, and Ian McShane, who’s set to play Professor Broom.
The Blood Queen, previously known as Nimue and the Lady of the Lake was the greatest of all British witches. She lived during the reign of King Arthur, and was beloved by Merlin, who told her all of his secrets. She later used this knowledge to imprison him in a grave for eternity.
Aron Coleite is working on the latest draft of a script by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin and Mike Richardson are the producers.
