Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, the two French directors behind the recent Franco horror film Inside, have been hired to helm the upcoming remake of Clive Barker’s 1987 classic Hellraiser. Bloody Disgusting reported last week that the pair have signed for the film, which will probably go into production before next year’s possible Director’s Guild strike.
Bustillo and Maury’s Inside played last month at the Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews. It was picked up for distribution by the Weinstein Company.
Although Barker wrote and directed the original film – which centered on a man trapped in hell whose girlfriend tries to free him by exchanging innocent souls for his – he is only serving as a writer and producer on this version.
