Clive Barker teams with 'Saw' writers
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton - infamous for their writing duties on 'Saw' - are now working on Clive Barker's Hotel.
Warner Bros. Television have been sold a pitch for the project with a view to a potential series.
"Clive Barker's Hotel" looks set to host all manner of as yet undisclosed ghostly and ghastly plots. The Hollywood Reporter notes that Barker, the creator of the landmark horror franchise "Hellraiser" and other well-known genre properties, is attached to produce, while McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision is in talks to produce. Barker associate Joe Daley will co-produce.
The project follows a previous collaboration for Dunstan and Melton with the APA- and Evolution-repped Barker as they worked on Dimension's "Hellraiser" reboot.
