It's been revealed that Hellboy: The Crooked Man has already wrapped production. Yesterday, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola took to Instagram to confirm that cameras have now stopped rolling in Bulgaria, meaning the movie was only filming for roughly seven or eight weeks. 

Despite not getting the opportunity to visit the reboot's set, the writer and artist says "I have loved what I've been seeing," adding: "If fans have been waiting for a Hellboy film that is actually an adaptation of one of my stories I think they are finally going to get one."

"Congratulations to director Brian Taylor and a really wonderful cast," Mignola continues, "and to co-writer Chris Golden who did so much to figure out how to give the studio what they wanted and still keep true to the heart and soul of The Crooked Man, my favorite of the Hellboy stories...they did a wonderful job bringing his really horrific character to life."

It was previously announced that Jack Kesy (Deadpool 2) will star as Hellboy alongside Jefferson White (Yellowstone) as Tom Ferrell and Adeline Rudolph (Resident Evil) as Bobbie Jo Song.

Director Brian Taylor (Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) is at the helm of a movie that is said to expand Hellboy's world through some of the most beloved issues of the comic series. Mignola penned the screenplay alongside his Dark Horse Comics collaborator Chris Golden, so it's a project that definitely has potential. 

The official synopsis for movie reads, "Stranded in 1950s rural Appalachia, Hellboy and a rookie BPRD agent discover a small community haunted by witches, led by the Crooked Man, a local devil with a troubling connection to Hellboy's past."

On the page, The Crooked Man was an eighteenth-century miser and war profiteer named Jeremiah Witkins who was hanged for his crimes yet returned from Hell as the region's resident Devil. It's currently unclear who is playing that villain in the reboot. 

Millennium Media has yet to announce Hellboy: The Crooked Man's release date.
