Joining the cast of Neill Marshall’s rebooted Hellboy franchise alongside David Harbour will be none other than Ian McShane as Hellboy’s wise father Professor Trevor Broom. Originally portrayed beautifully by the late John Hurt, McShane is no stranger to the acting world either.
Most recently seen in the John Wick franchise as well as being well known for his role in HBO’s Deadwood. Obviously this is a fairly different style of casting for the character of Broom, but with Hellboy creator Mike Mignola working with Marshall on the film, I’m sure he gave the okay to cast the veteran character actor.
McShane is garnering praise for his work on Starz’s American Gods adaptation which has been a success for fans of the book and he is one of the many reasons for that success.
The film will be shooting in Bulgaria and the U.K. this September.
