Hold On to Your Chains - Doug Bradley Not Confirmed for Hellraiser Remake





Hold On to Your Chains - Doug Bradley Not Confirmed for Hellraiser RemakeThe Doug Bradley Facebook page has thrown a kink in the recent news from the Clive Barker Facebook page that Barker is writing an upcoming remake of Hellraiser with Bradley back in the lead as the iconic Pinhead. Bradley writes...

"Hi everyone! Just arrived in Orlando for Spooky Empire, to be greeted by the news via FearNet and Clive Barker's Facebook that he is writing a new Hellraiser script and intends that I should play Pinhead again."

"This is intriguing news, about which I know absolutely nothing. No one has contacted or spoken to me about returning. So until you hear from me to the contrary, assume that all rumors about me returning as Pinhead are only rumors.
Peace & Pain."
-Doug

Barker didn't confirm Bradley in his original announcement about the project but said he "told the Dimension team that in [his] opinion there could never be a Pinhead without Doug Bradley, and much to [his] delight Bob Weinstein agreed," so we certainly hope his signing on is just a formality. We'll be keeping our eyes open for the next update and keep you posted.

I wonder if Barker and Bradley realize that they're in a position to make film history here. I'm entirely serious. Think about it: We had a chance a few years back to witness an unprecedented event in cinema, when two different versions of a prequel to The Exorcist were eventually released to the public, each giving us a different director's take on the same basic plot. The films are very different in tone and pace and it was interesting to see how two different filmmakers handled the same basic premise. But this time Barker and Bradley have the opportunity to take this one step further and do something which, to my knowledge, has never been done in the history of horror: The original writer/director/creator of and the actor who portrayed the main villain in the initial film of a beloved,long running, decades spanning franchise returning in the same respective capacities in not a sequel, but a re-imagining of that original film. They told the story of Hellraiser in one way in 1987. Now we could see how they'd tell that story today. It would be worth seeing the new film just to experience that aspect of it. I sincerely hope Bradley steps on board.
