The heat is on for busy horror duo
They are angels to some, demons to others…writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton have recently signed a deal with The Weinstein Company to pen the upcoming Hellraiser remake.
Dunstan and Melton cut their teeth on the Hollywood horror scene thanks to the DVD success of Feast, a creature feature distributed by Dimension. Since then they have penned Lionsgate’s $125 million worldwide-grossing Saw IV and this year’s Saw V.
Dunstan is currently in principal photography on Dimension’s Midnight Man based on a script he co-penned with Melton.
The Weinstein brothers recently set a release date of January 9, 2009 for Hellraiser after it was evident directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury were never going to make the initial (unrealistic) September bow.
