Hellraiser remake faces more delays

Pinhead will not be pleased...

It looks like Hellraiser is headed for the seventh circle of development hell. 
The project has already been through more directors than Pinhead’s got through souls, and now the latest additions – Drive Angry duo Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier – have dropped out.
We’re not sure why they left, but it might have something to do with the fact the production company behind the remake – those lovely Weinsteins – want it to be a PG-13.
Which probably means slightly less skin-flaying than in the original. Rendering it just a little bit pointless. 
Still, we're sure this isn't the last we'll hear from the project. After all, the atrocious Hellraiser: Revelations was made so the brothers could hang on to the remake rights. 
Is it just us, or does this feel a little bit like Pinhead's become sentient and is ushering in a new Hell on earth via the medium of Hellraiser sequels?
Oh, it is just us? Okay, cool. 

Are you pleased this project seems to be cursed, or do you want more Pinhead flicks? Tell us!

      PG-13 is the anti-christ of ratings, only for docile scaredy-cats who don't want to choke on thier McFattasss burgers and shakes they make thier parents buy..

      See, all this trouble should be a sign to the studio to LEAVE IT THE F*CK ALONE. *facepalm*
