This sure ain’t cool; though I’ve been cautiously optimistic, at best, about the remake of Hellraiser, currently being written and set to be directed by the Inside team of Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury, I was hoping we wouldn’t have to wait too long to finally see it.
Dimension Films doesn’t care about my hopes, though, and has moved the remake from a September 5th, 2008 release date to “TBD”, according to Box Office Mojo. Why this hnas happened is anyone’s guess, but hopefully the extra time will allow the script to be polished to perfection. Amazing how I can still be optimistic sometimes, eh?
In slightly less surprising news, BOM also reports that MGM has moved Eli Roth’s Trailer Trash, the proposed feature-length film comprised of fake trailers, from an August release date to “TBD” as well. Personally I will be amazed if Trailer Trash gets made in the first place; the idea is just too weird for suits.
Keep it here for release date updates as we learn ‘em!
