As Clive Barker himself works on scripting a remake to Hellraiser, another one of his stories is about to find its way in front of the cameras. Want details? Read on!
Screen Daily reports that Raven Banner Enterainment has optioned Barker’s short story “Jacqueline Ess: Her Will and Testament,” which originally appeared in his anthology novel The Books of Blood. Many stories from the anthology have been turned into feature films in the past, including Rawhead Rex and Midnight Meat Train.
“Jacqueline Ess” tells the story of a beautiful woman with the ability to horrifically change people’s body shapes simply with her mind. Her ability gives her the power to grant men the ultimate sexual experience, albeit one that always proves fatal. It’s a story of sex, power, and the extremes that await us at the limits of desire.
Raven Banner will produce with Barker’s Seraphim Films on board to executive produce. The deal was negotiated by Raven Banner partners Michael Paszt, James Fler, and Andrew Hunt, with Noor Ahmed of Reder & Feig LLP negotiating on behalf of Seraphim.
The film is currently being scripted and is slated to go into production in the fall of 2014.
