More 'Hellraiser' Details   

February 25, 2008 Variety covered the "Hellraiser" remake this morning. Apparently, the new script is being written on a tight, tight "hair-raising" deadline.

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan are scripting the "Hellraiser" remake for Dimension Films.

The writers, earning high six figures for the job, will be working on a hair-raising deadline. French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo ("Inside") are planning a spring start for the redo of the 1987 Clive Barker film, and the scribes will do a page-one rewrite from the set of "Midnight Man." The duo scripted that Dimension film and Dunstan is directing it.

The original pic, which introduced the now-iconic Cenobite torturer Pinhead, follows a man and wife living in an old house who are caught up in machinations by the man's brother, a Cenobite torture victim, to rejuvenate his skinless body from the carcasses of fresh victims.
