Saw Director Cutting into ‘Hellraiser’ Franchise?

Director Darren Lynn Bousman has officially been asked to direct the remake to Hellraiser, filling the shoes of the French filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (who left the project a few weeks ago). When we were initially told the news (probably the same night as other websites reporting this), we checked in with Bousman who still denies that he will have anything to do with the return of Pinhead. Even though the director of SAW II-IV claims to have nothing to do with the project, insiders tell us the Weinsteins WANT HIM on the project ASAP. This would re-team Bousman with SAW writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Watch or an update soon on something that’s official. Bousman is currently prepping REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA for release via Lionsgate.
