Word recently broke that a Hellraiser remake was on the way from David S. Goyer. But that’s not the only plan for Pinhead and his pain-loving pals. There’s also a Hellraiser TV series in the works. Details are vague at the moment, but the plan is to either build on the mythology from the films and create either an anthology series, or a more traditional show with an ongoing narrative. That could work, but I have one pressing question: will the DJ cenobite who shoots killer CDs be featured?

Love, Simon was the high school romantic comedy that critics and audiences both adored last year. The film focused on Jurassic World star Nick Robinson as a closeted gay high school kid who suddenly starts e-mailing with an anonymous fellow closeted classmate, striking up a romance as pen pals.

However, the Love Simon TV series won’t be focusing on the same main character from the movie. Instead, it will follow two new characters and their blossoming romance in high school. Read More »
