Clive Barker On Board for Dimension's "Hellraiser" Remake

by | October 23, 2006 | Comments

Over at his official website, popular author / artist / filmmaker Clive Barker just shared some rather interesting news: He’ll be writing, but not directing, a remake of his classic "Hellraiser" for the guys over at Dimension Films.

From Revelations: ""I’m excited about it – actually it’ll be kinda cool to revisit it once and see if there are things we can do to it which will make it significantly better.

"I wouldn’t wish to direct – I only want to write and be a part of the producing team. I wouldn’t want to revisit something that I did as a director, something that I did all those years ago: that would be too, in a way, painful – not painful but weird, difficult, strange…

"I am very happy at the idea of having some more money for the cool stuff – I don’t know how much more money, but it’s got to be more than the $900,000 that we had the first time!"
