Here is some cool concept art from a possible reboot of the Clive Barker horror classic, Hellraiser. Don't worry, Pinhead is still as terrifying as ever. The art was designed by Paul Gerrard (Wrath of the Titans and Battle LA), and are for a teaser trailer that was directed by Mike Le Han (Mrs. Peppercorn's Magical Reading Room) and produced by the duo.
The project is described as follows:
In July Paul Gerrard (Wrath Of The Titans, Battle LA) and Mike Le Han (Mrs Peppercorn’s Magical Reading Room) produced a teaser trailer to accompany the pitch document which has many more conceptual designs that revision Hellraiser. Paul designed the new look for Pinhead and was production designer on the shoot and Le Han pulled in all of his film resources and directed the teaser on the new Alex 4:3 camera with anamorphic lenses.
With a crew of 47 an over 100 bloodied extras, the shoot was completed and is now in the depths of post production with a massive amount of VFX work being undertaken. Method Studios, Fugitive Studios and Flipbook Animation are helming the cgi/vfx with the talented Glen Southern designing the complex 3d elements to the new Hellraiser box.
When the teaser is complete they’ll be presenting it to Dimension Films along with an outline of the first film story and conceptual art pitch document with the hope to work on rebooting the Hell raiser franchise and bringing it into the 21st Century.
What do you think of the world that Gerrard and Le Han have created? I look forward to seeing and sharing the teaser trailer with you.
