Update: NEW DIRECTOR named. News here. We landed some huge news this weekend as we’ve confirmed that Christian E. Christiansen (say that ten times fast) is circling Dimension Films’ big budget Hellraiser remake. As it was previously reported, the Victor Garcia low budget sequel, Revelations, was greenlit in order for the Weinstein Company to retain the rights (much like they did in 2005 with both Deader and Hellworld). Based on what I’ve heard from various people who have pitched their version of Hellraiser, the Weinsteins are looking for someone to make the franchise fitted for “teens” (super, super, super lame), thus making the director of Sony Screen Gems’ The Roommate perfect for the gig. This leads beautifully into the news that the company hopes (nothing is signed) to land Amber Heard (Mandy Lane, Zombieland, The Stepfather) in the lead role. As much as I’m infatuated with Heard, you can’t get more “teen” than that. Coming soon to a theater near you: Pinhead vs Sorority Row…
