We haven't heard much on this Hellraiser remake for quite some time, and it turns out there is a good reason for that. Screenwriter Todd Farmer revealed that he and director Patrick Lussier couldn't see eye to eye with the studio on this project. Here's what Todd Farmer had to say below, when asked if he's still involved with the remake.

"I don't think so. We developed several versions for Dimension, but in the end we never saw eye to eye creatively. We wish them the best and look forward to seeing what they come up with."

Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier were actually set to take on Halloween 3D after they finished Drive Angry, although Dimension wanted them to work on Hellraiser instead. It seems the studio was pushing for a PG-13 rating, even though it is stipulated in the filmmakers' contracts that it be R-rated.

Yeah, before Drive Angry we pitched Halloween, Hellraiser, and Scanners to Bob Weinstein. We did our draft of Halloween right before we went off to do Drive Angry, then, right AFTER Drive Angry they asked us to do Hellraiser. Originally what they wanted was epic and dark, rated R. It was in our contract. So... if WE do Hellraiser, it's rated R; if they want to do PG-13 then they have to get rid of us."

Hellraiser was released in 2013.
