Hellraiser remake is shooting according to doug bradley via his facebook page. There is more. Very disappointing.


"Ladies, Gentlemen and Others,
I gather word is beginning to spread about the new Hellraiser movie which is, apparently, already shooting.
First, a point of clarification. This is the first time I have said anything about this. Anything else you have heard me say about any proposed Hellraiser film refers to the constantly rumored remake. And, for the record, I still know nothing about that.
First I heard about this new film was around Christmas in a phone call from Gary Tunnicliffe, who was my make-up artist on Bloodline through Hellworld. Gary, you may recall, also wrote the screenplay for Revelations. He has written and is directing this new effort. I can also assert, contrary to some rumours I've already seen, that Clive Barker is not involved with this in any way, shape or form.
Gary said he would send me a copy of the script when he had completed a second draft, but before I could be allowed to set eyes on the precious document, I was required to sign a gagging order. This was a three page document preventing me from talking about the script 'in restrooms', 'on elevators', 'in restaurants' or 'in cellular telephone conversations which may be overheard'. There was also dark reference to 'people talking out of turn at conventions'. I read this thing in disbelief, and informed Gary I would not be signing it.
And that's that. Clearly, I am deemed too much of a security risk to be allowed to read a Hellraiser script. People are starving to death in Syria and they're worried about me talking about a Hellraiser movie? Get a fucking grip. Can you say 'sense of proportion'?
Anyway, story short: a new movie is happening and I have nothing do with it. I was unable to make a decision about it because I was not allowed to read the script, unlike Revelations where I made a conscious decision not to do the movie based on the motives for making it and the poor quality of the script.

And that's everything."

Peace and Pain

Wow. I probably wouldn't see the remake anyway, even if Doug Bradley was in it. I don't think a remake is needed. Leave it alone. The original is just fine.

Just a note, this isn't the long rumored remake. This is another low budget sequel. Remember how Dimension lost the rights to the Halloween franchise because they didn't create any new material in a while? That is why this movie exists. It is dimensions attempt not to lose the right to Hellraiser. It doesn't have to do well, or even be good, it just has to exist. So please keep in mind, this is not a remake. Another note, Nancy from Nightmare on elm street is in this one. Its shooting in Oklahoma City.

Remake or no, Revelations seemed like a sign that the franchise isn't going in the right direction anymore and should just stop. I applaud Doug on his decisions, not backing anything without seeing the script and approving of it, I would've done the same. It is a shame though that without him having read the script to this newest one to even approve of it or not, we haven't the faintest idea if it'll be any good. He mentions Clive Barker having nothing to do with it so chances are it will be another Revelations.

Personally, I'm not completely against a Hellraiser remake as long as it remains as Gothic and gritty as the original. After reading this though, I don't think I'll be watching this one

This actually makes me feel a little better... I'm not going to pass judgement until I see it.

Never been a huge fan of the original so I'll probably see it.

The sequel was pretty good tho.

I'm right. It's the rest of the world that's wrong.

Why can't they get their business in order? I thought Clive Barker was on the remake. That's the movie I was waiting for. Not what I've gathered seems to be yet another re-purposed script turned into a Hellraiser movie.

I always thought Hellraiser was among the stronger of the many long-running series out there. Sad to hear that it's devolved into straight-to-video rubbish without Doug Bradley.
