It looks like Hellraiser is headed for the seventh circle of development hell.
The project has already been through more directors than Pinhead’s got through souls, and now the latest additions – Drive Angry duo Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier – have dropped out.
We’re not sure why they left, but it might have something to do with the fact the production company behind the remake – those lovely Weinsteins – want it to be a PG-13.
Which probably means slightly less skin-flaying than in the original. Rendering it just a little bit pointless.
Still, we're sure this isn't the last we'll hear from the project. After all, the atrocious Hellraiser: Revelations was made so the brothers could hang on to the remake rights.
Is it just us, or does this feel a little bit like Pinhead's become sentient and is ushering in a new Hell on earth via the medium of Hellraiser sequels?
Oh, it is just us? Okay, cool.
