As Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen continues to flesh out its cast, the upcoming reboot for Big Red has moved to bring in Sophie Okonedo, Brian Gleeson and Alistair Petrie.
As per Deadline, Hotel Rwanda’s Okonedo will play Lady Hatton, a seer at the Osiris Club. What’s the Osiris Club, you ask? Why, it’s “an ancient English club dedicated to uncovering supernatural mysteries.” For Rogue One’s Petrie, he’s be playing a member of said club called Lord Adam Glaren, while Snow White and the Huntsman’s Gleeson is a wizard named Merlin.
The threesome join a cast that currently has David Harbour as Hellboy, Ian McShane as Professor Broom, Milla Jovovich as the villainous Blood Queen, and roles for Sasha Lane, Penelope Mitchell and Daniel Dae Kim.
To be directed by The Descent’s Neil Marshall, Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen has yet to be given a set release date, although shooting is expected to start sooner rather than later ahead of the film hitting the big screen at some point in 2018.
