Pinhead Set to Make a Return in New Hellraiser TV Series!

According to a recent report from the folks over at Deadline, It producer Roy Lee and Ready Player One producer Dan Farah have teamed up to bring back beloved horror icon Pinhead in the form of a new “Hellraiser” TV series. Those producers have joined forces with producer-rightsholders Lawrence KuppinDavid Salzman and Eric Gardner, who have controlled those TV rights since New World was sold in 1989.

The site adds: “The intention is to use the mythology established in the movie franchise and the Clive Barker novella The Hellbound Heart as a launch pad for a new series that could be anthology, or a more traditional narrative.

Before the series was announced, we learned that a new Hellraiser movie was also in active development at Spyglass Media Group. David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) is attached to write and produce the movie, which promises to be a true reimagining of Clive Barker’s creation.

The first movie told the story of a man who inadvertently opens a portal to hell when he tinkers with a strange puzzle box he bought during a trip abroad. The act unleashes gruesome beings called Cenobites, creatures from Hell. The scariest is Pinhead, who became the disturbing face of Hellraiser.

There’s no further details regarding Doug Bradley‘s involvement, but it would be a bonus if they could lure him back to reprise the role of Pinhead, along with original star Ashley Laurence, who played heroine Kirsty Cotton.
