The Tween Hellraiser Remake Finds Director, Star

Early Synopsis and Character Breakdown: Hellraiser: RevelationsWith the low-budget Hellraiser: Revelations currently shooting under the helm of director Victor Garcia, it seems as if preliminary planning on the oft-touted Hellraiser remake is continuing rather smoothly ... and more misguided than usual.

According to Bloody Disgusting, director Christian E. Christiansen (The Roomate) is close to landing the gig which will resurrect Pinehead for a whole new generation of kids too stupid to rent the original. Word is that the Weinstein duo (Harvey and Bob) are looking to boost the appeal of the franchise for teenagers, which is why Amber Heard (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) is being courted to star.

Doesn't sound all that promising ... that's for damn sure. And, not for nothing, but does anyone actually think teenagers are going to flock to a movie about sadomasochistic demons?

As bad as this is, I gotta ask; is anyone really surprised? Didn't we all see this coming? Personally, I've been resigned to the fact that this franchise will SUCK as long as the Weinsteins are involved.

Oh Matt, I love how you word things.
So much truth. Not even one ounce of hope.

This is a well written article suffused with disdain for plans that deserve it.

After RoboCop 3 you'd think studio heads would learn that the best way to make a successful sequel is to remember what elements made it a success in the 1st place.

Hopefully the Weinsteins will snuff it financially and the property will be purchased by a company that knows what to do with it.
