Dear David S. Goyer Where Is The Hellraiser Script ?

Storytelling is a very compelling art form. The way a story is told on screen is called a screenplay, and one man has had much success with his screenplay’s. David S. Goyer has had much success in Hollywood and is a go too for a blockbuster.

Goyer had much success with the Dark Knight films alongside Christopher Nolan. His latest film to hit theaters was Terminator: Dark Fate which was released last year to mixed reviews. Goyer has become Hollywood’s golden boy

With the downfall of Miramax, a lot of movie properties were up for sale. The Hellraiser franchise was one of these properties. Hellraiser was first released in 1987 and was penned and directed by legendary storyteller Clive Barker. The Hellraiser franchise has seen its share of ups, but mostly downs. The last film in the franchise and under the banner of Dimension films (Miramax)  was Hellraiser Judgement released in 2018.

In May of last year, SpyGlass Media Group announced that a new Hellraiser film was in the works.  Not a reboot, but a remake and the man to do such a job was the golden boy himself David s. Goyer. In press releases, Goyer had this to say about the announcement. “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.”

That announcement was made close to nine months ago. Since then many announcements have been made which would lead many to believe that the Hellraiser remake has fallen to the waste side. These announcements include Goyer signing a multi-year deal with Skydance Television to produce original content. Goyer is also acting as an executive producer on Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman for Netflix. Spyglass Media has been mum on any Hellraiser news.

All these announcements, but nothing about his script for Hellraiser. You would think such an amazing storyteller would take the time and dedication to tell a horrid tale and create a new generation of Hellraiser fans. But fans of the franchise are used to waiting. At least we have the first two films to look back on.
