Less and less misses as the beloved horror franchise returns hellraiserwhich as we know will feature a new incarnation of the legendary Pinhead.
For the first time in the history of the saga, a female version of the chief of the cenobites will be presented, interpreted for the occasion by Jamie Claytonknown to the general public mainly for her role as Nomi Marks in Sense8. Historically, the character, a true icon of horror cinema, has always been associated with the face of English actor Doug Bradley, who played the role in eight films in the series after debuting in 1987 with the progenitor. Hellraiser – There are no limits.
Now, however, we can take a first look at the new version of the character embodied by the English actress thanks to the images broadcast exclusively by Weekly entertainment.
You can see HERE the first images of Jamie Clayton in Pinhead.
Speaking about the new film in the saga, director David Bruckner said:
“This is not a remake. I don’t think you can ever replicate the original Hellraiser. That would be too much and I think that would also be dangerous territory for filmmakers, because… how do you go beyond that? It’s a new story in the Hellraiser universe. This is the story of a young woman, struggling with addiction and compulsive behavior, who accidentally comes into contact with the Cube Lemarchand and unfortunately begins to rub against it. He will have to face the chaos that will follow“.
The director then commented on the choice to entrust the role of Pinhead to a transgender actress:
“We felt a kind of yearning from the fans for the character to be reimagined. We knew we wanted Pinhead to be female. Jamie was the right person for the role. A person’s identity can be really exciting for a role in so many ways, but I have to point out that Jamie was absolutely fantastic, and that’s how we got here.“.
The screenplay for the film was edited by Ben Collins And Luc Piotrowskiduring Clive Barker – creator of the narrative universe of hellraiser – returned to be part of the project again as a producer backed by David S. Goyer. Producers also include Marc Toberoff and Keith Levine.
In addition to Jamie Clayton as Pinhead, there will be Odessa A’zion as protagonist Riley, Brandon Flynn, Goran Visnjic, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Selina Lo and Hiam Abbass.
hellraiser will debut next October 7 on Hulu.
