Apparently, the folks at Spyglass Media Group have such sights to show us. Deadline has reported that Spyglass, a new independent content company launched on March 13th by former MGM boss Gary Barber and Lantern Entertainment, has announced today that their first project is to be a “re-imaging” of Clive Barker’s 1987 immortal classic Hellraiser.
CEO Barber made the announcement of the reboot as well as letting the world know that David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) will be handling writing and producing duties on the project which will be developed for worldwide theatrical distribution. Barber said, “Clive [Barker] and I go back more than 30 years together. For generations, his brilliantly twisted and imaginative Hellraiser haunted the minds of moviegoers with its searing imagery of Pinhead.” He added, “David [Goyer] is the perfect storyteller to continue Clive’s vision for a new theatrical version of Hellraiser.”
