Good news this to greet Halloween.

The delicious sounding HBO TV Adaptation of Hellraiser has already got some stunning creative talent on board behind its camera and its now added another huge name.

Not content with having Halloween ‘s David Gordan Green, Trick ‘r Treat’s Michael Dougherty and Battlestar Galactica’s Mark Verheiden all involved, they have now added Clive Barker himself who will Executive produce.

Its Barker’s first involvement since Hellraiser IV’s Bloodline.

Here is what Barker said when it was announced of his return to his beloved franchise.

I’m delighted the Hellraiser mythology is seeing a new life. It’s time the stories went back to their roots. I’m eager to bring to a new audience the most powerful and ancient elements of horror: the darkest evil invading our human lives and how we must find in ourselves the power to resist it.”

This really is a coup for the planned production which as of yet has no release date!
