Doug Bradley responds to the HELLRAISER news
The internet blew up yesterday after Clive Barker made the announcement about a HELLRAISER remake indeed going ahead. Clive stated he was writing the script based on his treatment and that Doug Bradley would return as Pinhead.
Well apparently Doug Bradley had no idea! So Clive may have gotten ahead of himself, Doug took to Facebook (where else) to comment on Clive’s post.
Just arrived in Orlando for Spooky Empire, to be greeted by the news via FearNet and Clive Barkers Facebook that he is writing a new Hellraiser script and intends that I should play Pinhead again.
This is intriguing news, about which I know absolutely nothing. No one has contacted or spoken to me about returning. So until you hear from me to the contrary, assume that all rumors about me returning as Pinhead are only rumors.
Peace & Pain.
Well that puts a pin in the balloon doesn’t it? No one else can play Pinhead, HELLRAISER: REVELATIONS kind of proved that.
So what does this mean for the project? I’d say people need to talk, huh?
We’ll keep you all updated!
