Ed Skrein, who was recently seen as the villain Ajax in Deadpool, has been cast in a main role in Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot. Skrein will play Major Ben Daimio, a military member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. The character is able to turn into a jaguar when he gets angry or is in pain because of a prior supernatural incident.

Recently, star David Harbour told the Happy, Sad, Confused podcast that the film isn't really an origin story.

"There is something of [his origin], but it's not really an origin story movie. We kind of pick up the movie like we're running and gunning. We do have a little bit of stuff where we show stuff, but it really is a story and you just drop in with this guy...You accept that there's this half-demon guy running around the world and being a paranormal investigator and solving crimes and also dealing with his own issues at the same time."

The Hellboy reboot, formerly titled Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen, is directed by Marshall, and stars David Harbour as Hellboy, Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, and Milla Jovovich as The Blood Queen. The film, which is shooting for an R rating, is set to film this fall for a 2018 release.
