Clive Barker: I’m Writing a New ‘Hellraiser’

The original “Hellraiser” is getting a remake, and it will come from the mind of the original writer and director, Clive Barker.

The prolific English writer announced via Facebook that he has pitched an idea to Dimension Pictures for a remake of the first “Hellraiser” film and the studio has asked him to go forward with writing the script.

He explained, “What can I tell you about it? Well, it will not be a film awash with CGI. I remain as passionate about the power of practical make-up effects as I was when I wrote and directed the first HELLRAISER.”

Barker also said he plans to bring back the original actor who played Pinhead, Doug Bradley.

The first “Hellraiser” was released in 1987 and grossed $14.5 million domestically. It spawned three sequel, none of which outperformed the original.
