‘Hellraiser’ Reboot in the Works With David S. Goyer, Spyglass Media Group

Spyglass Media Group has recruited David S. Goyer to produce and write the story for what is being described as a “loyal, yet evolved reimagining” of writer-director Clive Barker’s original 1987 horror classic. Spyglass will finance, develop and fast track the film for worldwide theatrical distribution.

“Clive and I go back more than 30 years together,” said Spyglass CEO Gary Barber in a statement. “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.”

“I’ve been a fan of Clive’s work since the original Books of Blood paperbacks and The Hellbound Heart novella,” said Goyer, whose other credits include writing and directing 2004’s superhero sequel, Blade: Trinity. “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.” Keith Levine will produce the Hellraiser reboot alongside Goyer, under the Phantom Four banner.
