Jamie Clayton to Play Pinhead in 'Hellraiser' Reboot
The 'Sense8' and 'L Word' actress joins a cast of Odessa A'zion, Brandon Flynn, Goran Visnjic and more
Published Oct 07, 2021Production on David Bruckner's Hellraiser reboot for Spyglass and Hulu has officially wrapped, and the film is now expected to arrive sometime next year. Additionally, we've now learned that Sense8 and The L Word: Generation Q actress Jamie Clayton will play the role of the demonic Pinhead.
Clayton joins the cast of Odessa A'zion, Brandon Flynn (13 Reasons Why), Goran Visnjic (Fatima), Drew Starkey (Outer Banks), Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds and Hiam Abbass.
Described as a "loyal, yet evolved re-imagining of Clive Barker's 1987 horror classic," the 2022 feature's screenplay was written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski. Barker returns to produce the forthcoming remake, alongside Marc Toberoff, David S. Goyer and Keith Levine.
"Having seen some of the designs from David Bruckner's new Hellraiser film, they pay homage to what the first film created, but then take it to places it's never been before," Barker said in a statement.
"This is a Hellraiser on a scale that I simply didn't expect," he continued. "David and his team are steeped in the story's mythology, but what excites me is their desire to honour the original even as they revolutionize it for a new generation."
Bruckner added in a statement: "It's been such an honour to have Clive on board to help support and shepherd us through the incredible universe he created so long ago. Combined with a fearless and committed cast, including the amazing Jamie Clayton, who fully embodies the role as the Hell Priest, we're aiming to create a very special new chapter in the Hellraiser legacy."
