It seemed likely that we’d be getting a Hellraiser reboot from Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer last year, but the project fell through and we haven’t heard much since. However, some new concept art has gone online from a Hellraiser reboot teaser that was filmed as part of a pitch to Dimension Films:
“In July Paul Gerrard (Wrath Of The Titans, Battle LA) and Mike Le Han (Mrs Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room) produced a teaser trailer to accompany the pitch document which has many more conceptual designs that revision Hellraiser. Paul designed the new look for Pinhead and was production designer on the shoot and Le Han pulled in all of his film resources and directed the teaser on the new Alex 4:3 camera with anamorphic lenses.
With a crew of 47 an over 100 bloodied extras, the shoot was completed and is now in the depths of post production with a massive amount of VFX work being undertaken. Method Studios, Fugitive Studios and Flipbook Animation are helming the chi/VFX with the talented Glen Southern designing the new Hellraiser box.”
Keep in mind that this teaser footage is just being created as a pitch and there is no guarantee that this creative team will move forward with a full movie. We’ll keep an eye out for the teaser footage and will post an update it if it goes online. Another possibility for Hellraiser is a TV series, which was recently pitched to potential buyers at the Cannes Film Festival.
