Martyrs Director Now on Hellraiser


Dimension takes another crack at the remake

Martyrs‘s Pascal Laugier is closing in on a deal that will put him at the helm of Dimension Films’ Hellraiser.

The project first landed in the laps of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside). They were in line to write and direct a remake, then Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton were brought in to pen a new draft.

“This is a dream project for me,” Laugier tells THR. “I know Clive Barker’s work very well, and I would never betray what he has done. Fans are expecting a definitive Hellraiser and I don’t want to take that away from them.”
