Unleash the Cenobites! Word came this afternoon that HBO has optioned a Hellraiser TV series with Halloween‘s David Gordon Green eyed to direct the pilot and writers including Trick ‘Treat/Godzilla: King of the Monsters‘ Michael Dougherty penning additional episodes. According to Deadline:
The series will be written by genre and action vets Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Gallactica, Daredevil, Heroes), and Michael Dougherty (X-Men United). All of them will be executive producers alongside Farah Films’ Dan Farah, Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee, along with Lawrence Kuppin and David Salzman and Panacea Entertainment’s Eric Gardner.
There is no mention of Hellraiser creator and franchise mastermind Clive Barker being involved. We’ll keep you posted on the series as it progressed.
