Sense8's Jamie Clayton Set as New Pinhead in Hellraiser Reboot

A reboot of "Hellraiser" will be heading to Hulu, and a new person will be cast in the iconic Pinhead role. 

"Sense8" actress Jamie Clayton will star in the film, which will be produced by Clive Barker. Doug Bradley played the original Pinhead.

The cast also includes Brandon Flynn (13 Reasons Why, Ratched), Goran Visnjic (The Boys, ER), Drew Starkey (Outer Banks, Love, Simon), Adam Faison (Everything's Gonna Be Okay, Into the Dark), Aoife Hinds (Normal People, Anne Boleyn), Selina Lo (Boss Level), and Hiam Abbass (Blade Runner 2049, Succession).

"Next year marks the 35th anniversary since Hellraiser first haunted our dreams. It's only fitting to come full circle in collaborating with Clive, the original creator, and master of visionary horror. We look forward to working with our partners at Hulu in bringing this unique take on the original to new audiences," said Peter Oillataguerre, President of Production for Spyglass.

Director David Bruckner said, "It's been such an honor 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."

The "Hellraiser" franchise is comprised of four films, with the original being released in 1987 and the latest in 1996.
