Surprising news from the camp of Cliver Barker, or in this case his Twitter camp. It seems that French director Pascal Laugier is no longer attached to the announced ‘Hellraiser’ remake. It doesn’t appear that things are going too well for this project as this is the second case of a directorial duty shift as of course ‘Inside’ helmers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury were originally attached. But Cliver Barker has confirmed that they are now seeking yet another replacement!
Here’s what Barker’s Twitter posting had to say: “Pascal Laugier is regrettably no longer on the Hellraiser remake. I think Martyrs is extraordinary.”
With this sudden shock departure it seems ‘Hellraiser’ may have to lay dormant for a little while longer until a suitable director can be found. Although to beat ‘Martyrs’ helmer Laugier will take some beating.
