Jack Kesy, probably best known for playing Black Tom in ‘Deadpool 2’, has been casted as Hellboy in the latest attempt to turn the character into a blockbuster franchise.
Kesy will take on the role in Millennium Media’s ‘Hellboy: The Crooked Man’ which will be helmed by ‘Crank’ director Bryan Taylor from a script by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Chrstopher Golden.
Jack Kesy is a dynamic actor who has the ability to morph into his roles. His talent and stature are perfect for this younger Hellboy. I was very impressed with him while working together on The Outpost.Jonathan Yunger, co-President of Millennium Media
The film, which is due to shoot in Budapest soon, will see Hellboy stranded in 1950s rural Appalachia with a rookie BPRD agent. There they discover a small community haunted by witches, led by a local devil with a troubling connection to Hellboy’s past: the Crooked Man.
