It would be hilarious if they just hire another white guy in his place.

“Ed came to us and felt very strongly about this. We fully support his unselfish decision,” Lionsgate, the studio behind the reboot, said in a statement. “It was not our intent to be insensitive to issues of authenticity and ethnicity, and we will look to recast the part with an actor more consistent with the character in the source material.”

The creator of the “Hellboy” comic book, Mike Mignola, thanked Skrein on Twitter. “Very nicely done,” he added.

The studio will now focus on re-casting the role of the former U.S. Marine. The film begins shooting this October and sources say Skrein’s departure won’t affect the start date.

Re: Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen -- REBOOT (D: Neil Marshall) S: David Harbour

I am still pissed that they didn't cast any white people as slaves in the Roots remake.

I lean so far to the left that I almost tip over but this social just warrior shit really gives us a bad rap and is out of control.

Re: Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen -- REBOOT (D: Neil Marshall) S: David Harbour

Well I'm confused....we have someone backing out because the character was written as someone of different racial background which is fine..... yet we have Marvel and DC re-writing characters social and ethic backgrounds left & right and there is no controversy there?

No controversy? Did you miss all the complaints about The Ancient One in Doctor Strange or even Mandarin in Iron Man 3?

SEPTEMBER 11, 2017 2:29pm PT by Borys Kit
Daniel Dae Kim in Talks To Replace Ed Skrein in 'Hellboy' Reboot (Exclusive)

Daniel Dae Kim, who recently left CBS’ Hawaii Five-O, is in negotiations to join the cast of Lionsgate and Millennium’s Hellboy reboot.

Kim will step into the role recently left vacant by Ed Skrein after an outcry over whitewashing a Asian-American character.

Kim will play Major Ben Daimio, a rugged military member of the bureau for paranormal research and defense who, due to a supernatural encounter, can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain. The character is Japanese-American in the Hellboy comics by creator Mike Mignola.

Skrein had nabbed the role in August but, after a social media protest, made the unprecedented move to step down later that month.

“It is clear that representing this character in a culturally accurate way holds significance for people, and that to neglect this responsibility would continue a worrying tendency to obscure ethnic minority stories and voice in the Arts. I feel it is important to honour and respect that,” he said in a statement.

Lionsgate concurred, saying “It was not our intent to be insensitive to issues of authenticity and ethnicity, and we will look to recast the part with an actor more consistent with the character in the source material."

Kim is Korean-American. And the actor is no stranger to standing up for his beliefs. In June, Kim quit Hawaii Five-O after a salary dispute with CBS; he had been seeking equal pay to the show’s stars, Alex O'Loughlin and Scott Caan. His quitting, along with co-star Grace Park, left the show temporarily without Asian regulars.

David Harbour (Stranger Things) is starring in Hellboy, which reboots the franchise centered on the demonic hero from the Mignola comic books. Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall is helming the project.

Kim has been acting since the early 1990s and appeared on shows such as ER and Angel. He became a known quantity and star thanks to his breakout work on ABC’s Lost, and co-starred on Five-O since it launched in 2010.

He is repped by UTA.

Are we sure that isn't a promotional photo from the second movie? It's indistinguishable from the Perlman version.

He's always had long hair, Perlman's version just kept it up in a man bun.

Hellboy Release Date Set for January 2019

Quote:
The Hellboy release date has been set for January 11, 2019. No other film is on that date right now, but M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and Unbreakable sequel Glass does open a week later on January 18.

Well, there goes the concept of releasing it on a good date. Glass will open huge. and scoop up Hellboy's box-office like Dark Knight did in 2008.

Re: Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen -- REBOOT (D: Neil Marshall) S: David Harbour

Yeah, makes no sense. Just glancing, Feb 22 (a week after Bride of Frankenstein which I have my doubts will even get made), or any date in August, September or October.
