Barker’s treatment is in
“There are some areas of the first movie where I think we can be a lot more intense and a lot more scary,” he told Variety. “It will not be simply a reworking or reshooting of the first picture.”
Since the November ’06 announcement things have been quiet. Unsubstantiated talk that Barker was not going to write the script after all floated our way. Daley says otherwise, that Clive – amid his busy schedule – still aims to flesh out his treatment into a proper screenplay. It just may not be happening as fast as everyone anticipated – some speculated that Dimension would shoehorn it in for an ’07 release to mark the original film’s 20th anniversary.
Phil and Sarah at Revelations spoke to Barker not long ago who expounded on the above. “The ‘Hellraiser’ treatment has been signed off on by Miramax. They have it in their hands and they like it, and they want a bit more ‘Hellraiser’ mythology, which is music to my ears – itâ€™s the first time Iâ€™ve ever heard that request! You know, where do I sign? But theyâ€™ve already signed so that’s fine…”
