Drive Angry Team For Hellraiser Remake
Not so teen after all?

News moves quickly around these parts. Since yesterday, Collider have picked up confirmation that Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer will be the force behind Dimension's Hellraiser remake. It'll be the next project for the 3D-friendly duo who brought us the My Bloody Valentine redo and the upcoming Drive Angry. They also worked on the abandoned (for the time being) Halloween 3D for the Weinsteins.

Roommate director Christian E Christiansen had been in the running for the gig, but ultimately lost out to the Drive Angry team, as did Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who brought us the last four Saw films and The Collector.

Collider do confirm, however, that drafts of the script so far have all focused on "young adults encountering Pinhead", some with a Hellboy-ish fantasy vibe, and some more along Elm Street lines. Whether that will remain the case under the new creative team remains to be seen. The word is that Dimension is still keen on the "young adult spin", and given her presence in Drive Angry, the rumour of Amber Heard's casting may yet prove true.

More on this as it comes. Drive Angry is out in the UK on February 18 next year.
