French filmmaker Pascal Laugier has signed up to direct Dimension Films remake of Hellraiser according to Empire. He has most recently directed Marytrs, which caused a big fuss at Cannes on account of all the violence and whatnot. The helmer spewed all the right words when he said: "This is a dream project for me." I know Clive Barker's work very well, and I would never betray what he has done. Fans are expecting a definitive Hellraiser, and I don't want to take that away from them."  The original is not what I'd call a horror classic, and they're always the ones most ripe for a remake; so let's hope he bring something new and scary to the table.
