‘Hellraiser’ Remake Stays in Clive Barker’s World

It was announced back in October that Drive Angry and My Bloody Valentine director/writer duo, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer, respectively, would be reteaming for a remake of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser for Dimension Films. Moviefone caught up with Lussier who talked a bit about keeping the original’s tone: “We want to pull from the world that Clive created. Specifically that’s what we wanted to do. In that original film he opened so many interesting doorways and opportunities that that’s what we want to explore– always keeping in mind what he had done and how he did it and just working within that world.” He continues talking about how it won’t be focusing on “teens”, like the Weinsteins originally wanted. “Oh, God no. No, no, we definitely did not want to do that. If you’re going to make a ‘Hellraiser’ movie… you’re basically looking at a franchise that went from Clive’s movie up to the ‘Hellraiser’-in-Space movie, ‘Bloodline,’ which had some great stuff in it, actually; the way it goes backwards and forwards in time, and Angelique is such an interesting character.” Oh, such sweet, sweet flesh.
