Hellraiser (2022)

Post by Krappy » Mon Aug 29, 2022 7:11 am

A young woman struggling with addiction comes into possession of an ancient puzzle box, unaware that its purpose is to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.

At the moment it looks like this film is going straight to Hulu. (10/7/21)
Jamie Clayton (Sense8, The L Word: Generation Q) plays Pinhead.
Clive Barker was quoted saying: "Having seen some of the designs from David Bruckner’s new Hellraiser film, they pay homage to what the first film created, but then take it to places it’s never been before. This is a Hellraiser on a scale that I simply didn’t expect. David and his team are steeped in the story’s mythology, but what excites me is their desire to honor the original even as they revolutionize it for a new generation." (10/7/21)
Producer David S. Goyer was quoted saying: "From the moment I first read The Hellbound Heart, Clive Barker became one of my literary heroes. His work is transgressive and completely redefined the horror genre. Under the guiding hand of David Bruckner, we’re going back to the source and taking our inspiration from that original novella." (10/7/21)
Director David Bruckner was quoted saying: "It’s been such an honor to have Clive onboard to help support and shepherd us through the incredible universe he created so long ago. Combined with a fearless and committed cast, including the amazing Jamie Clayton, who fully embodies the role as the Hell Priest, we’re aiming to create a very special new chapter in the Hellraiser legacy." (10/7/21)
One of the film's producers was quoted saying: "Next year marks the 35th anniversary since Hellraiser first haunted our dreams. It’s only fitting to come full circle in collaborating with Clive, the original creator and master of visionary horror. We look forward to working with our partners at Hulu in bringing this unique take on the original to new audiences." (10/7/21)
Director David Bruckner offered a brief update on what fans can expect from the film, saying: "We can’t say anything about it yet. But it is something that we are actively working towards, and it is a joy and a dream for a filmmaker like myself to dive into that world. All I’ll say is that we are aiming to be as true as we can to the original material. [Clive Barker’s original story] 'The Hellbound Heart' is also a primary source of inspiration, as well as the original film. But then it is something of a small reimagining and we are currently working on it." (8/11/21)
Odessa A'Zion (Grand Army) is rumored to star in the film. (6/18/21)
It looks like writer David S. Goyer has been replaced by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (duo behind Siren, Super Dark Times, The Night House). David Bruckner (The Signal, The Ritual, The Night House) is also set to helm the pic, which has been described as "loyal, yet evolved."
This project is now back in development and reportedly on the "fast track" with new producers and David S. Goyer (Dark City, Blade Trilogy, The Dark Knight) now set to script. It also appears that Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine) is no longer directing. One of the new producers was quoted saying: "Clive and I go back more than 30 years together. For generations, his brilliantly twisted and imaginative Hellraiser haunted the minds of moviegoers with its searing imagery of Pinhead. David [S. Goyer] is the perfect storyteller to continue Clive’s vision for a new theatrical version of Hellraiser." Writer/producer David S. Goyer added... "I’ve been a fan of Clive’s work since the original Books of Blood paperbacks and The Hellbound Heart novella. Having the chance to reimagine Pinhead and the Cenobites for a new audience is a nightmare-come-true. Gary is a true fan as well and we’re committed to making something dark and visceral." (5/6/19)
It's said that this project will have a bigger budget and will have a theatrical release.
Co-writer Todd Farmer had this to say about approaching the script: "We didn’t get on board for Hellraiser to remake Clive’s movie. That movie is so unique and tells such a personal story so we don’t really see the need to remake it. Our plans are to take the mythology and set it in a modernized world that makes sense in context with the original. It’s not a remake and it’s not a reboot - it’s something else entirely. But we are definitely planning for our Hellraiser to be very R-rated so fans shouldn’t be worried there."
Director/co-writer Patrick Lussier detailed how he and co-writer Todd Farmer are pulling inspiration from the world that Clive created, saying "in that original film he opened so many interesting doorways and opportunities that that's what we want to explore-- always keeping in mind what he had done and how he did it and just working within that world."
Patrick Lussier was quoted the following on what to expect from the scope of the film: "the idea was that if we're going to do it, let's be epic. There's a part of this world that we're never allowed to see because there's never been the resources to show it, so let's show it."
Filming was originally hoped to begin sometime in the Spring of '08, with an early January '09 release.
The duo behind the My Bloody Valentine remake and Drive Angry, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer, return to develop this project.
At one point it was originally set to have a September 5th '08 theatrical release and was rumored to be in 3D.
When this project was still in early development it was said to mix elements from both Clive Barker's "The Hellbound Heart" novella and the original 1987 movie.
When writer/director Pascal Laugier was still attached to the project, he described the script as more of a "re-boot" than "remake", saying how most of the material is taken from the original Clive Barker novella, "The Hellbound Heart."
Pascal Laugier (Martyrs) was once attached to direct before he left the project.
Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (Inside) were once attached to direct before being replaced by Pascal Laugier (Martyrs).
Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (Feast, Saw IV) wrote an early draft.
French filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (Inside) wrote the first script, which was based on a treatment by Clive Barker, but the studio declined it.
Clive Barker returns as producer.
This project has been described as a "loyal, yet evolved reimagining."
This is a remake of the classic 1987 Clive Barker film.
Hellraiser premieres exclusively on Hulu on October 7, 2022.

Wanna know what Pinhead looks like underneath all those pins? We've got such sights to show you.


If there's one thing the "Hellraiser" franchise has taught us, it's that you should never mess with puzzle boxes. Here's why the one in the new "Hellraiser" on Hulu looks so different.
