Jefferson White and Adeline Rudolph have joined Jack Kesy in the cast of Hellboy: The Crooked Man, set to be directed by Brian Taylor
Yesterday, we learned that Jack Kesy – who played Black Tom Cassidy in Deadpool 2 – has been cast to play Hellboy in the upcoming franchise reboot Hellboy: The Crooked Man, which is set to be directed by Crank director Brian Taylor from a screenplay by Chris Golden and Hellboy comic book creator Mike Mignola. Now Sahu Newsreports that Kesy already has two co-stars: Jefferson White of Yellowstone has signed on to play Tom Ferrell and Adeline Rudolph of the Netflix Resident Evil series has been cast as Bobbie Jo Song.
According Hellboy.Fandom, Tom Ferrell is a character from the comic books who “was born around 1923 in the Appalachian mountains near the Hurricane (an area locals try to avoid) to a mother we know little of and his father, Charles E. Ferrel, who had a habit of drinking in the back woods. His early misadventures with witchcraft led to a self-imposed exodus.” I’m not sure if Bobbie Jo Song was in the comics, but there’s more information about her below.
Hellboy: The Crooked Man will see Hellboy and a rookie BPRD agent stranded in 1950s rural Appalachia. 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. In the comic, 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.
Tales from the Collection adds that the story will introduce parapsychologist Bobbie Jo Song, who is tasked with delivering a spider to the BPRD but must seek Hellboy’s help when things go awry. Together, they travel to Appalachia to take on the Crooked Man, who has been sent back to Earth to collect souls for the devil.
Hellboy: The Crooked Man is set to begin filming in Bulgaria next month.
