'Hellraiser' Is Getting a Reboot from the Guy Who Wrote 'Batman Begins'

In a world of reboots, it looks as if they're finally raising Hellraiser. The beloved 1987 horror flick, which has spawned a ridiculous amount of sequels, is finally getting reimagined for modern audiences.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Spyglass Media Group has apparently hired David S. Goyer to produce and write a "loyal, yet evolved reimagining of the franchise" that was initially created by Clive Barker.

This isn't the first big name to land on Goyer's desk — he previously wrote both Batman Begins and Man of Steel.

"Clive and I go back more than 30 years together," Spyglass CEO Gary Barber said in a statement. "For generations, his brilliantly twisted and imaginative Hellraiser haunted the minds of moviegoers with its searing imagery of Pinhead. David is the perfect storyteller to continue Clive's vision for a new theatrical version of Hellraiser."

Goyer added, "I've been a fan of Clive's work since the original Books of Blood paperbacks and The Hellbound Heart novella. Having the chance to reimagine Pinhead and the Cenobites for a new audience is a nightmare-come-true. Gary is a true fan as well and we're committed to making something dark and visceral."

Stay tuned for more information on the new Hellraiser as it becomes available.
