Hellraiser Reboot Movie Heading To Hulu

Hulu will release the next movie in the long-running horror series.


The Hellraiser reboot movie will be produced for Hulu. According to Bloody Disgusting, the Disney-owned streaming service will release the next movie in the long-running horror franchise.

The new Hellraiser movie has been in development for some time, but the Hulu deal gets it closer to actually happening. David Bruckner is on board to direct, from a script by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, who have also written Bruckner's upcoming film The Night House, which releases in July. Bruckner's previous film was the acclaimed British horror The Ritual.

It's currently unknown if the next Hellraiser film will be a new adaptation of Clive Barker's original short story The Hellbound Heart, or more of a departure. When Buckner was first announced as director in April last year, producers Spyglass Media described his take as "loyal, yet evolved."

The first Hellraiser was directed by Barker in 1987. Hellbound: Hellraiser 2 followed a year later, and since then there has been a steady stream of low budget sequels, most of which have headed straight to home entertainment formats. The most recent release was 2018's Hellraiser Judgment.

There's also a Hellraiser TV show in development at HBO Max. Halloween 2018 director David Gordon Green is producing with Michael Dougherty (Godzilla: King of the Monsters) co-writing.
