Clive Barker has confirmed that he will be moving forward with a Hellraiser Reboot. The first two movies were horror classics but then they went way downhill from there. Clive Barker says that a reboot is needed and it will all start on Devil’s Island. This is all very early news on the Hellraiser Reboot and nothing has been finalized yet. How eager are you to see a new Hellraiser movie?
I think the phrase is ‘reboot,’ although I’ve never really understood what that meant. I wanted to make sure we sounded some fresh notes. The movie actually begins on Devil’s Island. I wanted to fold into the Hellraiser narrative something about the guy--the Frenchman Lemarchand--who made the mysterious box, which raises Pinhead. I figured, ‘Well, what would have happened to him?’ He might well have been taken to Devil’s Island and I thought that would be a pretty cool place to start the movie. We’re waiting for Bob to come back to us and see when we’re going to actually make the movie.
