Hellraiser TV show from ‘Halloween’s’ David Gordon Green
If the new Hellraiser film hasn’t tickled you in the right places, there’s another offering coming our way via a different medium. It seems that having successfully cracked the Halloween reboot, David Gordon Green now has his sights on a Hellraiser TV show. HBO has made a deal to develop a series from the classic horror franchise, with Green set to direct the pilot and several more initial episodes. This would be the very first time we have ever seen Pinhead and the cenobites on the small screen.
Pinhead is certainly is not the first horror villain to get a TV show, as Freddy Kruger had a short run TV series called Freddy’s Nightmares that ran for two series in 1988. A Child’s Play TV series is also in the works.
Deadline dropped the news stating that…
The producers put together the rights package last June, based on the Hellraiser film franchise hatched from Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart. The idea is to create an elevated continuation and expansion of the well-established Hellraiser mythology. It is by no means a remake, but rather assumes the past mythology to be a given. Expect a revisit from Pinhead, the merciless leader of the Cenobites, the formerly humans-turned-demons that live in an extra-dimensional realm and are activated through a puzzle box called the Lament Configuration. The Cenobites come from hell to harvest human souls and keep balance between good and evil.
This new HBO series is said to be completely unconnected to the Spyglass/David Bruckner film that is currently in production, putting the franchise into a similar situation that the Child’s Play franchise faced, with a TV series and reboot happening side by side.
More news at it comes. In the mean time, let us know how you feel about two Hellraiser projects coming your way?
