Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen will be R-rated, Darker, And More Gruesome.

Director Neil Marshall has revealed that Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen will be R-rated.

Marshall stopped by Mick Garris' Post Mortem podcast, to talk about what we can expect from his version of Hellboy.

"We’ve been granted permission to do it R-rated, which for me is just like taking the cuffs off," Marshall told Mick Garris' Post Mortem podcast. "It’s like, okay, so now we can just make the movie we want to make. It’s not like I’m going to force it to be R-rated, but if it happens to come out that way, just because of my own sensibilities, then fine. And 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.”

Marshall also revealed that the movie will rely less on CG and use more practical effects. "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."

Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen screenwriters Andrew Cosb, recently revealed that the reboot will be “a darker, more gruesome version of Hellboy.”

“[This] is a darker, more gruesome version of Hellboy,” Cosby said. “Neil said from the very beginning that he wanted to walk a razor’s edge between horror and comic book movie, which was music to my ears, because that’s what I was shooting for in the script, and precisely what Mignola does so well with the comics.”

The live-action film adaptation of Mike Mignola‘s comic book series will be scripted by the author himself, with Andrew Cosby, and Christopher Golden. The Hellboy reboot is set to start filming in the autumn, and will star Stranger Things' David Harbour.
