David S. Goyer is writing and producing a planned reboot of the Hellraiser horror film franchise for Spyglass Media Group. First reported by Deadline, this franchise is based on Clive Barker's original 1986 novella The Hellbound Heart.
"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," said Goyer. "[Spyglass CEO/Chairman Gary Barber] is a true fan as well and we’re committed to making something dark and visceral."
To date, 10 Hellraiser films have been made, as well as several comic book spin-offs.
No release date for Spyglass' Hellraiser reboot has been set.
