BREAKING: It’s been a long, hard road out of development hell, and Pinhead isn’t out of the woods just yet.

After years in development, and god awful sequels, Dimension Films is finally embarking on a quest to the seven levels of Hell with Hellraiser creator Clive Barker!

Barker, who hasn’t been involved since Hellbound: Hellraiser II, has officially announced that he will be writing the hellraiserremake for The Weinstein Company – and also revealed that Doug Bradley will return as the iconic slasher!

Halloween has come early!

Here’s a letter to fans from Clive posted on his official Facebook:

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.

  1. This is so exciting!! I don’t feel there is a real need, but I genuinely just LOVE anything Clive Barker does with his life! xx
