Meh

Its a festival of Remakes for the Weinsteins. This go around comes word of the HellRaiser remake. According to the Weinsteins blog; Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury are in hard negotiations to direct the remake of Clive Barker's Hellraiser for Dimension Films. Bustillo and Maury's recent horror film, Inside (À l'intérieur), was acquired by the Weinstein's in Cannes. Barker will write the screenplay and serve as a producer. Anthony Diblasi and Joe Daley will co-produce the remake.

First released in 1987, Hellraiser tells the chilling story of an unfaithful wife who attempts to assist her dead lover in his escape from Hell. Based on Barker's critically acclaimed novella, The Hellbound Heart, Hellraiser was written and directed by Barker and spawned a lucrative film franchise.

Bob Weinstein stated, "We are excited to be in business with Clive Barker who created such an iconic character with Pinhead. We look forward to working with him to bring his fantastic vision to the big screen for a new generation of fans."

What do you think? Is this good or bad? I know we have alot of remake haters but with Clive Barker involved in the remake does that help?
