HBO Develops 'Hellraiser' Series Deal; Halloween's David Gordon Green To Direct Episodes

HBO has developed a rights package deal to create a series from the classic horror franchise Hellraiser, with Halloween director David Gordon Green set to direct the pilot and several more initial episodes. This is the first time Pinhead, the iconic pincushion-domed villain who heads a group of pasty-faced villains sent from hell, known as the Cenobites has been made into a series.

The series will be written by Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Gallactica, Daredevil, Heroes), and Michael Dougherty (X-Men United, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Trick r’ Treat). All of them will be executive producers alongside Farah Films’ Dan Farah, Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee, along with Lawrence Kuppin and David Salzman and Panacea Entertainment’s Eric Gardner. Rough House Pictures partners Green, Danny McBride Jody Hill and Brandon James will be part of the executive producers team. Farah Films exec Andrew Farah, and Adam Salzman will also serve as co-executive producers.

The rights package deal was put together by the producers last June, based on the Hellraiser film franchise hatched from Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart.

The idea is to create an elevated continuation and expansion of the well-established Hellraiser mythology. It is by no means a remake, but rather assumes the past mythology to be a given. Expect a revisit from Pinhead, the merciless leader of the Cenobites, the formerly humans-turned-demons that live in an extra-dimensional realm and are activated through a puzzle box called the Lament Configuration. The Cenobites come from hell to harvest human souls and keep balance between good and evil.
