Last we heard on the “Hellraiser” reboot front, the story’s original author (and the original movie’s director) Clive Barker is currently writing the script. We haven’t heard who will be directing the film yet when it finally does happen — which isn’t a given, since it’s been years since the movie was first put into development. “Drive Angry’s” Patrick Lussier, who was originally attached to direct, is now off the project.
Enter Paul Gerrard and Mike Le Han, who have put together a rather snazzy looking “pitch trailer” called “Hellraiser: Origins” to put their names into the hat. You can check it out below. I’m not sure if they’re both going for the job as a directing duo, or if it’s just Le Han directing and Gerrard doing production designs. Either/or.
Writes the duo:
From Paul Gerrard (Wrath Of The Titans, Battle LA, TMNT) and Mike Le Han (Mrs Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room) comes a re-imagining of the Hellraiser world. A teaser was produced to accompany a pitch document which has many more conceptual designs that revision Hellraiser. Paul designed the new look for Pinhead and was production designer on the shoot and Le Han pulled in all of his film resources and directed the teaser on the new Alex 4:3 camera with anamorphic lenses.
“We produced the teaser to aid in pitching to reboot the Hellraiser franchise”
