RAWHEAD REX BEING REMADE?

News form AICN:

Here are some tidbits from Mr. Clive Barker himself.

Tortured Souls is expected to be his next project as writer/director. It's based on the recent Todd McFarlane adult figurine collection which Mr. Barker wrote an accompanying story for. Mr. Barker describes it as 'unapologetically horror', says it will use CGI as little as possible and it'll just barely get an R rating but the DVD will be NC-17, so that should be kick ass. He also seems to have as many possible projects as Quentin Tarantino, including adaptations of his brilliant novels The Books of Blood, The Thief of Always, Abarat and Weaveworld all in the works. He says he wishes he could clone himself so he can get everything done that he wants to get done, and I'm against human cloning but if we could get twice as much creative output from the minds of Clive Barker and Quentin Tarantino, I'm all for it.

The Abarat book collection will be in three parts. It was written around a collection of around 400 paintings he's been working on the last few years. They are not for sale but will be going on a tour around the country and can be glimpsed on the recent Fangoria Blood Drive DVD extra features or in the Abarat books themselves.

Rawhead Rex from the Books of Blood will be remade. Although Mr. Barker is credited as writing the original he was not happy with how it turned out and wants to remake it. He describes Rawhead Rex as a '9 ft tall phallus with teeth' and the story concerns Rawhead being accidentally resurrected in a small English town where it proceeds to use it's intelligence and hunting skills to devour the local population, especially it's children.

Mr. Barker says he likes to hide away, is uncomfortable with fame and only comes out to buy DVD's and comic books. His DVD collection, which puts Moriarty's to shame, is over 6000. Some of his recent favorites are High Tension and Anatomy from Germany and Queen Margot from France. He also enjoys what the Japanese have been doing with horror lately. He likes movies with extremes, hates chick flicks, doesn't particularly like comedy except for maybe dry British humor and this might come as a shock, hates the American Pie movies and Van Helsing.

Mr. Barker says he would like to write for at least 30 more years and eventually reach at least 50 books. He's at 20 books right now. He says that anyone who wants to become a writer needs to educate and discipline themselves so they can hold onto 'fugitive ideas' whenever they may come, including on the toilet. He says that Pinhead came to him in a dream, or in what would be described as a nightmare by most people.

Anyway, there's a lot more I'm holding back including what's next for Harry D'Amoure(Lord of Illusions) and Pinhead (Hellraiser) because I want everyone who's interested to go to his website, look at the schedule and attend a book signing near them. I believe that all who do will too become disciples and will enjoy the strange and wonderful imaginings of the great artist Clive Barker.'
