NUKE THE FRIDGE are reporting that concept artist Paul Gerard and director Mike Le Han are currently working on a teaser trailer pitch to reboot Clive Barker’s HELLRAISER film franchise.
The HELLRAISER concept is also currently in development as a TV show. The Weinstein Company held the rights for the franchise for quiet some time and up until the criminally awful direct to video release of HELLRAISER: REVELATIONS last year, which capsized commercially as well, they pretty much had all control. Well not anymore.
I do remember reading how livid Clive Barker was over REVELATIONS and the idea of a reboot has been kicking around for some time. Check out this concept art Gerard and Le Han have come up with. And also don’t be shy to check out the 1987 horror classic that is HELLRAISER.
HELLRAISER I, II & III are on HOME ENTERTAINMENT formats through UMBRELLA ENTERTAINMENT in AUSTRALIA.
