David Gordon Green to Direct New HBO Series "Hellraiser"

HBO is developing a series based on the classic horror franchise “Hellraiser” with “Halloween” director David Gordon Green at the helm.

Deadline reports that Green, who received praise for his “Halloween” reboot in 2018 and is working on two sequels, will direct HBO’s “Hellraiser” pilot and several more initial episodes. The project will mark the small screen debut of the franchise’s iconic pincushion-headed monster and the rest of the Cenobites.

Green isn’t the only blockbuster veteran looking to tear HBO viewers’ souls apart in the new series; Mark Veheiden (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Daredevil”) and Michael Dougherty (“X-Men United,” “Godzilla: King of the Monster”) will write the series and will executive produce alongside Green, Dan Farah, Roy Lee, Lawrence Kuppin, David Salzman, Eric Gardner, Danny McBride, Jody Hill, and Brandon James. Andrew Farah and Adam Salzman will co-executive produce.
