Weinsteins' Hellraiser Remake Has Its Writers

Dunstan, Melton climb aboard the reboot.

Hollywood’s never-ending remake party had to take a brief hiatus during the writers’ strike, but now that the lights are back on in Tinseltown, studios are moving forward with their plans to reboot all the franchises you know and love…like Clive Barker‘s Hellraiser, for instance.

ShockTillYouDrop reports that Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, writers of Feast, Saw IV, and Saw V, have signed on to pen The Weinstein Company’s forthcoming Hellraiser remake. According to the report, TWC has the new Hellraiser penciled in for January 9, 2009, on account of it being “evident [that] directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury were never going to make the initial (unrealistic) September bow.”

A horror remake…coming out in January. Not exactly the most promising setup, but we’ve learned never to count out those crafty Weinsteins, so we’ll reserve judgment for now (and draw a little Pinhead on our calendar’s 1/9/09).
