Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer Directing 'Hellraiser' Remake
Previously, we hadn't heard any news regarding Dimension Films remake of the horror favorite Hellraiser since director Pascal Laugier was taken off the project. But recently, rumors coming from Bloody-Disgusting surfaced that Christian E. Christiansen was going to direct a PG-13 friendly remake with everyone's favorite Pinhead potentially terrorizing the super hot rising star Amber Heard. Well, hardcore fans needn't worry about those silly rumors since ShockTillYouDrop and Collider both independently confirmed that Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer (of My Bloody Valentine 3D, Drive Angry 3D) are now behind this remake.
Though this most recent news makes the PG-13 rating unlikely for the reboot of the Pinhead franchise (I'm not sure Lussier and Farmer could ever craft a PG-13 flick), it does make Amber Heard's involvement a little more likely since she kicks asses alongside Nicolas Cage in Drive Angry 3D. The question now will be if Lussier and Farmer will continue their trend of shooting in 3D with Hellraiser. Surely people will love seeing Pinhead's pins jut out of the screen. Remember the duo also spent some time developing Halloween 3D for Dimension before production was shut down, so maybe this will end up reinvigorating the project if people turn out for Hellraiser. Does this news get anyone excited for the Hellraiser remake?
