When Clive Barker unleashed his directorial debut into the world in 1987 it was unlike most anything else in the horror genre. Based on his own novella, “The Hellbound Heart,” Hellraiser mixed murder, demons, S&M, infidelity, and some incestuous shenanigans for good measure. The film didn’t exactly blow up the box-office, but the character of Pinhead (Doug Bradley) found a success all his own turning him into a franchise star. This was especially impressive as he only had a few minutes of screen time in the first film. There have been eight sequels so far, most of them direct to DVD (and most of them pretty terrible), but talk of a big screen reboot has been in the air for years. Possible writers and directors have come and gone over the years including the various talents behind Inside, Martyrs, The Collector, and My Bloody Valentine 3D, until the idea seemed to die a quiet death. But now there seems to be good news on the horizon. According to Barker’s Facebook page (h/t Fangoria), he recently had a meeting with Bob Weinstein of Dimension Pictures where he pitched a remake of his own, and now he’s been officially hired to write the screenplay.
