Martyrs Director on Hellraiser Redux?
The Weinsteins can’t seem to make up their mind as to who should be at the helm of their ill-conceived Hellraiser remake, having cycled through both the team who made Feast and the team who made Inside, but at least they seem to have settled on using a French director.
The boys at Bloody Disgusting got word that Martyrs director Pascal Laugier is now the name Harvey and Bob are whispering to one another to make the remake happen. Having not seen Martyrs yet I can’t determine if this is a good plan or not, but the festival buzz the flick’s been getting is a good sign.
No word on how similar the remake will be to either Barker’s original film or his short story it was based on, “The Hellbound Heart”, but at least we know if and when it does happen that it’ll look pretty! Keep it here for more word on the new Hellraiser as it comes down!
