Although Hellraiser was Clive Barker's creation, he has not been involved in any of the movie sequels in quite some time. Dimension owns the rights to develop new movies and they've been working on a number of remake attempts over the years that never moved forward. Thankfully, we have some amazing news that comes straight from Clive Barker- he's finalizing a deal to work on a script for a Hellraiser remake and plans to have Doug Bradley return as Pinhead:

"HOT FROM HELL! My friends,I have some news which may be of interest to you. A few weeks ago I had a very productive meeting with Bob Weinstein of Dimension Pictures,in the course of which I pitched a remake of the first HELLRAISER film. The idea of my coming back to the original film and telling the story with a fresh intensity-honoring the structure and the designs from the first incarnation but hopefully creating an even darker and richer film-was attractive to Dimension. Today I have officially been invited to write the script based upon that pitch.What can I tell you about it?Well, it will not be a film awash with CGI. I remain as passionate about the power of practical make-up effects as I was when I wrote and directed the first HELLRAISER. Of course the best make-up in the world loses force if not inhabited by a first-rate actor. I told the Dimension team that in my opinion there could never be a Pinhead without Doug Bradley,and much to my delight Bob Weinstein agreed. So once the papers are signed , I will open a Lemarchand Configuration,dip my quill in its contents and start writing . I promise that there will be nowhere on the Internet where the news of my progress will be more reliable than here ,because the only author of these reports will be Your Infernal Corespondent ,me. My very best wishes to you
all,my friends.

Of course, we'll be sure to let readers know as soon as more details become available. Until then, Clive Barker is still working on new content, featuring your favorite Cenobite. There's an ongoing Hellraiser comic book series over at BOOM! Studios and Clive Barker recently finished The Scarlet Gospels, his long awaited novel that features Pinhead and Harry D’Amour. *Thanks to Daily Dead reader Michael Garrett for the heads up.
