    Default Hellraiser

    Clive Barker announced some HUGE news via his Facebook page. He will be rebooting Hellraiser starring Doug Bradley!

    Here is what the horror legend had to say:

    HOT FROM HELL! My friends, I have some news which may be of interest to you. A few weeks ago I had a very productive meeting with Bob Weinstein of Dimension Pictures,in the course of which I pitched a remake of the first HELLRAISER film. The idea of my coming back to the original film and telling the story with a fresh intensity-honoring the structure and the designs from the first incarnation but hopefully creating an even darker and richer film-was attractive to Dimension. Today I have officially been invited to write the script based upon that pitch.What can I tell you about it? Well, it will not be a film awash with CGI. I remain as passionate about the power of practical make-up effects as I was when I wrote and directed the first HELLRAISER. Of course the best make-up in the world loses force if not inhabited by a first-rate actor. I told the Dimension team that in my opinion there could never be a Pinhead without Doug Bradley,and much to my delight Bob Weinstein agreed. So once the papers are signed, I will open a Lemarchand Configuration,dip my quill in its contents and start writing . I promise that there will be nowhere on the Internet where the news of my progress will be more reliable than here, because the only author of these reports will be Your Infernal Corespondent, me. My very best wishes to you all, my friends.
    Clive.

    I'd be more excited if I enjoyed the Hellraiser series. The first one I found to be exceptionally boring and melodramatic and not very scary. I did enjoy Bloodline when I was younger but I think it had a cooler idea behind it and F. Murray Abraham

    This "Reboot" thing is getting a little out of control, no?

    I hope the deal falls through. The original is classic horror. Leave well enough alone! Barker has more than enough material that warrants attention in hollywood. Yet another case of money grabbing by hollywood and, sad to say, Barker.

    Well, for once we agree!!! How about "The Great and Secret Show" or "Weaveworld"??? To name a couple off the top of my head.

    I think we agree more than we would like to let on. Weaveworld, Imajica would be great choices, though The Damnation Game and Coldheart Canyon would be my first choices. I love Great and Secret Show, but seeing as it is part of an unfinished series I would hold back till Barker decides to finish it.

    in my mind there's only one person who can do a Weaveworld movie Guillermo Del Toro and hopefully The Scarlet Gospels will be published and eventually made in to what could be the final Hellraiser film

    WOW! Fantastic idea. Unfortunately, will it ever happen? Probably not. del Toro got his development of Lovecraft's at the Mountains of Madness halted by the Universal (Comcast) suits. The bean counters just dont want to put big budget into genre film as it historically under produces in the bean counting contest.

    It supremely sucks that we are into the technological age in which we can make many of these dreams of imagination into reality on celluloid, but ahem, nobody wants to pay for it because making those artistic visions real MIGHT not be a good return on investment.

    Both could stand as singular films if, I recall properly, but you do make a good point.

    FvJ was Englund's last go around as Freddy, after Hellbound the studio that bought the rights to the Hellraiser franchise kicked Barker to the kerb and decided to set the sequels in america

    After looking at Clive's site, I'm very interested about that extended cut of Nightbreed, which went grossly underrated.

    Arrow Video has announced that it will release on Blu-ray Hellraiser: The Scarlet Box. The box set will be available for purchase in the United States on December 13.

    Stephen King was once quoted as saying: "I have seen the future of horror… his name is Clive Barker." That future became reality when, in 1987, Barker unleashed his directorial debut Hellraiser – launching a hit franchise and creating an instant horror icon in the formidable figure of Pinhead.

    Barker's original Hellraiser, based on his novella The Hellbound Heart, follows Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) as she comes head-to-head with the Cenobites – demonic beings from another realm who are intent on reclaiming the soul of her deviant Uncle Frank. Picking up immediately after the events of the original Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II finds Kirsty detained at a psychiatric institute and under the care of Phillip Channard, a doctor who abuses his position to realise his own dark aims. In Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth, a reporter investigating a mysterious death at a nightclub finds herself in the way of Pinhead and the Cenobites, who plan to bring their horrifying world into our own.

    Coming at a time when the genre was degenerating into self-parody, Hellraiser offered a fiercely unique vision that approached its horrors with a far greater degree of seriousness than many of its contemporaries.. Along with its sequels, the Barker-produced Hellbound and Hell on Earth, Arrow Video is proud to present some of the most terrifyingly original films in the history of horror in brand new 2K transfers.

    David S. Goyer is set to write and produce Spyglass Media Group's re-imagining of Hellraiser, one of horrormeister Clive Barker's best-known creations.

    Released in 1987, Hellraiser told the story of an unfaithful wife who attempts to assist her dead lover in his escape from hell. The movie introduced viewers to a race of demons called Cenobites, most notably one nicknamed Pinhead, an enduring horror character who was summoned using an antique puzzle box.

    Goyer is known for his screenwriting work on Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, as well as Man of Steel. His previous directing credits include 2004's Blade: Trinity, the 2009 horror film The Unborn and episodes of Starz's Da Vinci's Demons, which he created.

    As Spyglass resurrects Hellraiser, the studio will finance, develop and fast track the film for worldwide theatrical distribution. Spyglass chairman and CEO Gary Barber said Goyer was the right storyteller to turn Barker's original vision for Hellraiser into a new theatrical experience.

    "For generations, his (Barker's) brilliantly twisted and imaginative Hellraiser haunted the minds of moviegoers with its searing imagery of Pinhead.” Barber added. Keith Levine will produce the Hellraiser redo alongside Goyer, under the Phantom Four banner.

    Chris Stone, vp of development and production for Spyglass, will oversee the project. "Having the chance to reimagine Pinhead and the Cenobites for a new audience is a nightmare-come-true. Gary is a true fan as well, and we’re committed to making something dark and visceral," Goyer, who is also showrunning the upcoming Foundation series at Apple, said in his own statement.

    i saw this too why can't they just leave a perfect film alone? this is going to suck major ass i think and i like David S. Goyer's work but i am so against them remaking hellraiser. i'm sorry there is only 1 Pinhead and that's Doug Bradley. kinda like Elm Street only has one Freddy Robert England. and anyone who is cast other than him even though they are clearly to old now for the role are medicore at best. i haven't seen all the hellraiser films just the 1st three actually and i love those with part 2 being my favorite one. but on how shitty those sequels seem to be i'm not in search of them either
