Hellraiser Remake Is Stalling Again

Creative team offers an update

The sweet suffering that only Pinhead and his fellow cenobites can dish out may not be felt on the big screen right away.

Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry), the duo attached to revive Hellraiser on the big screen for Dimension Films, attending the Los Angeles signing event for Still Screaming last night. And when pressed for details about their Hellraiser remake, both were telling fans that it was looking unlikely that it was going to happen with them involved. This update comes after Farmer and Lussier drafted a number of scripts that presented different takes on the latest Pinhead outing.

So, this means Hellraiser is, once again, on hold until Dimension sorts out what it wants to do with the series creatively.

A direct-to-DVD sequel Hellraiser: Revelations is arriving this fall – a production that was reportedly cranked out just so the studio could hold on to the rights. And it appears they were smart in buying themselves time to develop the property longer.
