The best way to soothe fans of a property is get the original creator(s) involved (see also: Lawrence Kasdan, 'Star Wars: Episode 7'), so the Dimension films have done a smart thing by hiring original writer/director/horror legend Clive Barker to pen the remake of 'Hellraiser,' and Barker says that he'll be bringing back Doug Bradley to play the film's iconic character Pinhead.
The trend of some sort of fictional creature fighting the other isn't dying off anytime soon. Why do we say that? Because Amazon Studios is moving ahead with their latest movie 'Zombies vs. Gladiators,' and they found the perfect guy to rewrite their story.
The current zeitgeist of horror movies is more popular than ever these days, what with the success of your "found footage" dramas like 'Paranormal Activity' and 'The Devil Inside,' but the more recognizable faces of horror yesteryear aren't as successful these days. So why not make the leap to TV?
