Barker had the following to say about the reboot:

Having seen some of the designs from David Bruckner’s new Hellraiser film, they pay homage to what the first film created, but then take it to places it’s never been before. This is a Hellraiser on a scale that I simply didn’t expect. David and his team are steeped in the story’s mythology, but what excites me is their desire to honor the original even as they revolutionize it for a new generation.

David Goyer, one of the producers of Night House, created the story, and Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (Super Dark Times) teamed on the screenplay.

The film also stars Brandon Flynn (“13 Reasons Why”, “Ratched”), Goran Visnjic (“The Boys”, “ER”), Drew Starkey (“Outer Banks”, Love, Simon), Adam Faison (“Everything’s Gonna Be Okay”, “Into the Dark”), Aoife Hinds (“Normal People”, “Anne Boleyn”), Selina Lo (Boss Level), Hiam Abbass (Blade Runner 2049, “Succession”), and (“Grand Army”) actress Odessa A’zion.
