One of horror’s most iconic characters, Pinhead has found his new interpreter. According to THR , actress Jamie Clayton has joined the reboot of “ Hellraiser ” in the role of the devil.
Released in 1987, “Hellraiser” told the story of an unfaithful wife who tries to help her dead lover in his escape from hell. The film introduced viewers to a race of demons called the Cenobites, but the most remembered is known as the Pinhead, an immortal character who was summoned using Lemarchand’s box.
Clayton is best known for her work on the series “ Sense8 ” by the Wachowski sisters for Netflix. She will also be in the upcoming “ Matrix: Resurrections ”.
In addition to Clayton, the film will also be starring Odessa A’zion. Rounding out the cast are Brendan Flynn, Goran Visnjic, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Hiam Abbass and Selina Lo.
David Bruckner directs, with a screenplay by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski with David S. Goyer. The new film will also be produced by Clive Barker, author of the novel that later expanded into the 1987 feature. Bruckner, Goyer, Keith Levine and Marc Toberoff complete the production team.
The reboot of “Hellraiser” has already completed its recordings and is scheduled to premiere in 2022, with no date set yet.
