Shock Til You Drop are reporting that The Weinstein Company have hired two new screenwriters, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, to adapt a new big screen series for the classic horror franchise. Production will begin shortly planned for an early 2009 release.
Marcus Dunstan, you may recall, is currently helming 'The Midnight Man' for Fortress Features, which he also co-wrote with Melton.
Plot Summary: First released in 1987, Hellraiser centers on a man who finds he is given more than he bargains for when he solves the puzzle of the Lament Configuration - a doorway to hell. But his ex-lover has found a way of bringing him back, and his niece, Kirsty Lawrence, finds herself bargaining with the Cenobites, angels to some, demons to others, whose greatest pleasure is the greatest pain.
Clive Barker Presents: Hellraiser will hit theaters on January 9th 2009.
