Guess Who's Directing 'Hellraiser'   

October 29, 2008 Pascal Laugier, director of "Martyrs," is closing in on a deal to direct a remake of "Helllraiser" for Dimension Films, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

As put in today's HR:

Pascal Laugier, whose horror film "Martyrs" stirred controversy in his native France, is in final negotiations to write and direct Dimension's re-imagining of "Hellraiser," one of horrormeister Clive Barker's best-known creations. Released in 1987, "Hellraiser" told the story of an unfaithful wife who attempts to assist her dead lover in his escape from hell.

Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, who helmed "Inside", were originally going to direct. Now they've been assigned the project of doing a sequel to Rob Zombie's "Halloween."
