Horror author Clive Barker has officially been handed writing responsibilities on the 'Hellraiser' remake thanks to Dimension Pictures. Barker, who also directed the original 1987 version, met with Bob Weinstein of Dimension recently and pitched his ideas for a remake of the cult horror classic. The writer announced it all on his Facebook page mentioning an "even darker" version this time around whilst "telling the story with a fresh intensity". And even better news is that British actor Doug Bradley would indeed return to once more to play Pinhead. The actor portrayed the spiky headed one in the first 8 installments of the franchise but was replaced by Stephan Smith Collins for the rushed, and poor, 2011 sequel 'Hellraiser: Revelations' which was made in 3 weeks simply to retain studio rights to the franchise. Check out what Barker had to say below.

"A few weeks ago I had a very productive meeting with Bob Weinstein of Dimension Pictures,in the course of which I pitched a remake of the first HELLRAISER film.

The idea of my coming back to the original film and telling the story with a fresh intensity-honoring the structure and the designs from the first incarnation but hopefully creating an even darker and richer film-was attractive to Dimension.

Today I have officially been invited to write the script based upon that pitch.What can I tell you about it?Well, it will not be a film awash with CGI. I remain as passionate about the power of practical make-up effects as I was when I wrote and directed the first HELLRAISER.

Of course the best make-up in the world loses force if not inhabited by a first-rate actor. I told the Dimension team that in my opinion there could never be a Pinhead without Doug Bradley,and much to my delight Bob Weinstein agreed."
