Hellraiser on hold

07.02.2009by: Ammon Gilbert
We've been hearing that the remake of Clive Barker's HELLRAISER was on rocky ground, and that the project may or may not be happening. But nothing has been made official yet... until now. Sort of.

The official date for CLIVE BARKER PRESENTS: HELLRAISER (yes folks, that's the official working title) has been changed from 2009 (a f*cking joke at this point) to a more suitable To Be Announced.

Could this mean that the project is officially on hold for a while? Could it be that the studio realized it won't be ready to release the flick in the next 5 months? Could it be that it's a sign that the film will never see the light of day? There are arguments for all of those factors, methinks. But as to the reasoning behind it all, it's up in the air at this point.

Personally, I'd like to go with the thought that this remake will never see the light of day. I know it's a pipe dream, but I just can't see them improving on a movie that barely hit 20 years ago. Stick around to see whether The Weinstein Company solidfies a date, or twiddles their thumbs on the project for a few more years.

Extra Tidbit: I'm still shocked that Clive Barker is behind this remake as much as he is.

Fuck Yeah! screw this remake.

Clive has no choice one way or the other so he might as well be. Alexandre Bustillo ,Julien Maury or Pascal Laugier would have given us all a great film, sad they are no onger attactched.

I say bring it!

I am huge fan of the novel The Hellbound Heart, but not a huge fan of the Hellraiser films. From what I understood Barker was behind this because it would very closely follow The Hellbound Heart and not be a true remake to the film Hellraiser. If that is the case, lets get this thing moving along.
