Hellraiser: Judgment

Hulu has announced the cast of David Bruckner’s upcoming Hellraiser reboot, which will star Jamie Clayton as Pinhead. Hulu and Spyglass Media Group announced that the movie will be headed to the streaming service and stars Odessa A’zion, Brandon Flynn, Goran Visnjic, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Selina Lo, and Hiam Abbass.

Clive Barker will serve as a producer on the project along with Marc Toberoff, David S. Goyer and Keith Levine. Bruckner is directing based on a script from Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, who wrote his most recent film The Night House from a story by Goyer.

Peter Oillataguerre, President of Production for Spyglass, said in a statement, “Next year marks the 35th anniversary since Hellraiser first haunted our dreams. It’s only fitting to come full circle in collaborating with Clive, the original creator and master of visionary horror. We look forward to working with our partners at Hulu in bringing this unique take on the original to new audiences.”

Bruckner added, “It’s been such an honor to have Clive onboard to help support and shepherd us through the incredible universe he created so long ago. Combined with a fearless and committed cast, including the amazing Jamie Clayton, who fully embodies the role as the Hell Priest, we’re aiming to create a very special new chapter in the Hellraiser legacy.”

The Hellraiser franchise, based on Barker’s short story “The Hellbound Heart,” has seen several ups and downs through the years including four theatrical releases from 1987 through 1996 and six straight to video films. It has also seen a host of other media expansions including graphic novels and more.

The franchise is also serving as the basis for a television series in the works from HBO from Mark Verheiden and Michael Dougherty, with David Gordon Green as director for several episodes.
