Original Pinhead to Appear in HELLRAISER Relaunch!

Yup, according to a recent interview with MTV, director Patrick Lussier wants Doug Bradley (the original “pinhead”) to appear in the Hellraiser relaunch:

Doug is pretty critical and key to the whole history of the franchise, just his face and how it looks covered in the pins and his voice, just his presence… That’s something that we’re working through with Dimension right now, about the uniqueness in the approach to Pinhead and how he’ll appear and how he’ll resonate with the past and how he’ll be presented to the future.

Although this project has described in many articles as a “remake” or “reboot”.  It is apparently more of a “sequelized relaunch”.  (Try saying that three times fast.)  In other words, the continuity of the first film will remain intact, but the Lussier film will reintroduce this world to a new audience.

  1. WOW! This is awesome news! I’m such a fan of Hellraiser 1 and 2. After that, they got a bit silly! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is good news, he did a good job even in the later films such as the 6,7 & 8 releases, but it is not his fault that the scripts sucked. Now I hope they have a better script and some good chain action to boot.

    I can not wait!

  3. it was about time!!!!!!
