Spyglass Rebooting 'Hellraiser' With David S. Goyer Writing & Producing

Gary Barber, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Spyglass announced that Spyglass Media Group will reboot Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic Hellraiser with David S. Goyer producing and writing. Over three decades, the Hellraiser franchise has spawned ten films, graphic novels and merchandise.

Spyglass will finance and develop the project for worldwide theatrical distribution. Keith Levine will serve as a producer alongside Goyer, under the Phantom Four banner. Chris Stone, Vice President, Development & Production for Spyglass, will oversee the project.

Barber said, “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.” He added, “David is the perfect storyteller to continue Clive’s vision for a new theatrical version of Hellraiser.”

Goyer said, “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.”

Goyer is known for co-writing Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise (Batman Begins, Dark Knight, Dark Knight Rises); wrote Marvel’s Blade trilogy for New Line and co-wrote the upcoming Skydance/Paramount/Fox production Terminator: Dark Fate.

The original is a masterpiece, Hellbound: Hellraisher 2 was a good sequel, everything that came after, especially the later sequels were really lacking.

I do hope this new reboot will at least take the best parts from the novel and give it a respectable treatment.

Well, they've tried a couple times already and failed miserably. Goyer has a couple of actor friends who would definitely do a better job than the direct to DVD rejects. Not sure how close they would come to Doug Bradley's level. Not sure how I feel about this whole thing. I love the first four movies to varying degrees. The rest are utter garbage.

I completely agree, the first 4 made sense, the rest was just torture porn with no script
