Based on a treatment by Clive Barker
Various sources speaking on the anonymous tip tell ShockTillYouDrop.com that helmers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury are directing Dimension Films’ Hellraiser remake. They’ll be writing a script based on Clive Barker’s treatment.
About a year ago Dimension and Barker announced they were teaming up for an update of the latter’s 1987 macabre milestone. Based on the novella “The Hellbound Heart,” the original film pushed new limits and introduced the world to the iconic Pinhead, played by British thespian Doug Bradley.
News on Hellraiser went quiet as Barker hashed out a 40-page Dimension-approved treatment. This week, B-D received the scoop Bustillo and Maury – French visionaries responsible for the extreme thriller Inside – were “in negotations” with the brothers Weinstein.
Word is, things will move fast now that the project has found directorial guidance. Keep it here for further updates!
