Martyrs Director Helming Hellraiser Remake


Today it was made official by THR that Martyrs director Pascal Laugier is in final talks to direct the upcoming remake to Clive Barkers Hellraiser. This has been one of the more troubled remakes that at one time we thought would have already been in the theater by now. So will this deal stick?

That seems to be the big question but Laugier has very high hopes that the deal will go through. Here is what he had to say, "This is a dream project for me. I know Clive Barker's work very well, and I would never betray what he has done. Fans are expecting a definitive 'Hellraiser,' and I don't want to take that away from them."

For those of you who have no idea what Hellraiser is about, it is the story of an unfaithful wife who attempts to assist her dead lover in his escape from hell. The movie introduced viewers to a race of demons called Cenobites, most notably one nicknamed Pinhead -- who became one of the most enduring horror characters of the decade -- who was summoned using an antique puzzle box.
