Word of a Hellraiser remake has been floating around since 2007 when it was revealed that Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, the duo behind the French sensation À l'intérieur, were attached to direct. After a year of near-stagnation, it was then revealed that the scribes of Feast / some of the Saw movies Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton were attached to write the remake. Eventually, Pascal Laugier, the director behind the controversial French flick Martyrs, became attached to the project. Then, because Pinhead really doesn't seem to want this remake to get made, Laugier took his business elsewhere.

Well, according to Bloody-Disgusting, the Hellraiser remake is officially without a director and a writer, but that still hasn't stopped Dimension Films from pimping their bad boy at the American Film Market. They even gave a synopsis:

"Based on Barker's critically acclaimed novella "The Hellbound Heart," Hellraiser tells the story of an unfaithful wife who attempts to assist her dead lover in his escape from hell. Having lost his earthly body to a trio of forsaken demons - lead bby one of the most enduring horror characters of all time, Pinhead - he must force his former mistress to bring him the necessary human sacrifices to complete his body. Clive Barker's Hellraiser promises to be a terrifying journey into the darkest corners of the soul."

While the notion of a Hellraiser remake is indeed a frightening prospect, the fact that it's going to be made in the dreaded third dimension is enough to make the film far more terrifying than any fate Pinhead can bestow upon you. As of now there is no release
