According to a new report, Clive Barker "has successfully leveraged copyright law to recapture the American rights to the franchise." Barker's attorney filed papers in California federal court that confirm a settlement with Park Avenue Entertainment. They are the production company that is currently in possession of the rights to the original Hellraiser. Those rights will now revert to Barker on December 19, 2021.
Hellraiser was based on Clive Barker's novella, The Hellbound Heart.
