Jack Kesy takes over the role after Ron Perlman and David Harbor

Jack Kesy will portray hellboy in The Crooked Man, a new film based on the demonic comic book character. It’s the latest reboot of the role, previously immortalized on screens by Ron Perlman and David Harbour.

Millennium Media is backing The Crooked Man, directed by Brian Taylor from a script by Hellboy comics writer Mike Mignola and Chris Golden. It will be the first film in Millennium Media’s development slate with German film and television distributor Telepool, a division of Westbrook Inc.

More of diversity

Based on the 2008 comic of the same name, the film focuses on the character’s earlier days and takes place when Hellboy and a rookie agent from BPRD (which stands for Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense) are stranded in rural 1950s Appalachia . There they discover a small community haunted by witches, led by a local devil with a disturbing connection to Hellboy’s past: the Crooked Man.

“Jack Kesy is a dynamic actor who has the ability to transform into his roles. His talent and stature are perfect for this younger Hellboy. I was very impressed with him while working on ‘The Outpost,'” Jonathan Yunger, co-president of Millennium Media, said in a statement.

As Yunger mentioned, Kesy recently worked with Millennium on The Outpost, a war drama starring Orlando Bloom and Scott Eastwood. The 36-year-old actor has also previously starred opposite Michael B. Jordan in Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse and director Alan Ritchson’s action thriller Dark Web: Cicada 3301. His other credits include “Deadpool 2”, “Baywatch” and “Death Wish”. Next, Kesy will star in Paramount’s Sheroes and David Fincher’s next project, The Killer.

Millennium Media bought the rights to Hellboy in 2018. At the time, Lionsgate was already in the midst of reviving the franchise with Harbor as the title character. Plagued by negative reviews, the 2019 reboot flopped in cinemas. Perlman starred in the original 2004 film and the 2008 sequel Hellboy II: The Golden Army, both of which received critical and audience acclaim.

The Crooked Man is produced by Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson and Millennium Media’s Jeffrey Greenstein, Jonathan Yunger, Les Weldon, Rob Van Norden and Yariv Lerner. Executive producers include Millennium Media’s Mike Mignola, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson and Tanner Mobley, Campbell Grobman Films’ Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell, and Telepool’s Michael Müllner and Julia Muentefering. Sam Schulte will co-produce for Millennium Media.

Millennium Media’s upcoming releases are The Bricklayer, starring Aaron Eckhart and Nina Dobrev; The Piper, starring Charlotte Hope and Julian Sands; and the fourth “Expendables” installment.
