Clive Barker Announces Involvement In Upcoming ‘Hellraiser’ Remake

Hellraiser

One thing that many of the followers of the Hellraiser series will argue over is the existence of the sequels; all of which weren’t worked on by the series’ creator, Clive Barker. Well, according to a recent Facebook post by Barker where he revealed his role in the writing of an upcoming reboot that he had pitched out to Dimension Films himself, there is now one thing less for those naysayers to hold against the franchise and one more thing for fans of this excellent horror series to look forward to in the near future.

Follow the jump to read the official announcement that Barker had posted to his official Facebook page.

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.”
