Daniel Dae Kim in talks to replace Ed Skrein in Hellboy reboot

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Actor Daniel Dae Kim is in negotiations to join the cast of "Hellboy" reboot after Ed Skrein left the project.

Skrein dropped out of the reboot following public outcry against whitewashing in Hollywood, saying it was important to "honour ethnic minority stories and voices in arts".

If the deal gets finalised, Kim will play Major Ben Daimio, a rugged military member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, the role which Skrein was supposed to play.

Skrein had nabbed the role in August but, after a protest, made the unprecedented move to step down later that month.

David Harbour is playing the titular role in "Hellboy". Neil Marshall is directing the movie, which also Ian McShane and Milla Jovovich.
