Ed Skrien has left the production of the Helboy reboot due to some casting controversy on his role in the film.
Skrein was recently cast for the role of Major Ben Daimio, who in the comics was a mixed race character with Asian heritage. Here is what Ed had to say on Twitter after leaving the position in the image below.
Hellboy producer Larry Gordon made a statement to Deadline stating "Ed came to us and felt very strongly about this. We fully support his unselfish decision. It was not our intent to be insensitive to issues of authenticity and ethnicity, and we will look to recast the part with an actor more consistent with the character in the source material."
