Feast, Saw Duo Confirmed For ‘Hellraiser’ Remake

Variety confirms that both Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan earning high six figures for scripting the Hellraiser remake for Dimension Films. The writers will be working on a hair-raising deadline with French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside) planning a spring start for the redo of the 1987 Clive Barker film. They will do a page-one rewrite from the set of Midnight Man, which the duo scripted that Dimension film with Dunstan behind the camera. The original pic, which introduced the now-iconic Cenobite torturer Pinhead, follows a man and wife living in an old house who are caught up in machinations by the man’s brother, a Cenobite torture victim, to rejuvenate his skinless body from the carcasses of fresh victims.
