‘Feast’ duo set to write ‘Hellraiser’

Melton, Dunstan to pen Dimension remake

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are scripting the “Hellraiser” remake for Dimension Films.

The writers, earning high six figures for the job, will be working on a hair-raising deadline. French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (“Inside”) are planning a spring start for the redo of the 1987 Clive Barker film, and the scribes will do a page-one rewrite from the set of “Midnight Man.” The duo scripted that Dimension film and Dunstan is directing it.

The original pic, which introduced the now-iconic Cenobite torturer Pinhead, follows a man and wife living in an old house who are caught up in machinations by the man’s brother, a Cenobite torture victim, to rejuvenate his skinless body from the carcasses of fresh victims.

Since their debut on the Project Greenlight pic ‘Feast,” Melton and Dunstan are establishing themselves as fright fixtures. They are coming off “Saw 4” and “Saw 5” and also scripted a remake of “The Tingler” for producer Neal Moritz and Sony.

Clive Barker, who hatched the original “Hellraiser” franchise, is producing the remake.
