American Honey actress Sasha Lane is about to board the Hellboy reboot. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lane is in final talks for the role of Alice Monaghan, who -- in the comics -- is rescued by Hellboy as an infant after being kidnapped by fairies because they could no longer have children.
Lane, who rose to fame with the Sundance hit, is the latest to join the all-star cast. She will appear alongside Resident Evil actress Milla Jovovich, who is set to play the villainous Blood Queen, and Ian McShane, who will appear as Hellboy's adoptive father Professor Broom. This will mark Lane's first major studio project.
Recent rumors suggested Alice would be a part of the story, along with Abe Sapien and Major Ben Daimio from the B.P.R.D. With Alice now confirmed to be a part of the film, casting announcements for both Abe and Ben may not be far behind.
Debuting in theaters in 2018, Hellboy will be directed by Neil Marshall and star David Harbour as Hellboy and Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm, Hellboy’s adoptive father and a prominent member of the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. The film does not yet have a release date.
