Hellraiser: Judgment

The Cenobites are about to break out of hell again, as a Hellraiser reboot is in the works. Spyglass Media Group announced on Thursday that they are reimagining the 1987 Clive Barker horror film, with David S. Goyer set to write and produce.

Spyglass announced that they will finance, develop and fast track the film for worldwide theatrical distribution as the first project since the company launched in March. Spyglass Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Gary Barber made the announcement, adding, “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. David is the perfect storyteller to continue Clive’s vision for a new theatrical version of Hellraiser.”

Goyer added, “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.”
