The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Sasha Lane is the latest name to join the cast of Lionsgate and Millennium Film’s reboot of Hellboy.
Mike Mignola created Hellboy back in 1993, telling the story of a demon being raised by a professor, growing up to fight supernatural evil beings for an organisation known as the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. The upcoming reboot, formerly titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen, will focus on Big Red squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy mankind.
The report states that Sasha Lane (who starred in American Honey) will be playing the role of Alice Monaghan. In the comics, Hellboy rescues Alice from the fairies that kidnapped her and she also happens to retain some supernatural gifts because of her time with the fairies.
Hellboy is being directed by Neil Marshall, aiming to begin production in September, filming in the UK and Bulgaria and Sasha Lane will be joining a cast that includes David Harbour, Ian McShane and Milla Jovovich.
