Hey guys, Jana here,

Clive-Barker

The writing and directing mind behind one of the greatest horror franchises in recent day, ‘Hellraiser, is seeing a project brought to drama series on The CW. Clive Barker will see his novel, ‘Weaveworld‘ brought to live, with a slight makeover to see it updated a bit from it’s origins when it was printed in 1987.

Weaveworld

The setting of the series will be moved from Liverpool to Savannah and sees an app designer teaming up with a young pastry chef who has just discovered that she is destined to be guardian of a mythological realm that can be accessed through a portal in an old mansion. Together, they fight an epic battle with evil forces who are vying for control of the magical world. I wonder if the portal will still be a woven and intricate carpet, although the name ‘Weaveworld‘ would not apply if it weren’t.

Barker will executive produce the project which will be written and exec produced by Jack Kenny (‘Falling Skies‘), along with another exec producer, Angela Mancuso (‘Tut‘). Since it’s genesis, ‘Weaveworld‘ has been a property deemed too difficult to adapt for the small screen because the scope of the series and the special effects that would be needed, which over the years proved too great a task until now, current technology is capable of accomplishing this feat, and on a smaller budget.

Movie Quotes

Rannulph Junuh:
Now, the question on the table is how drunk is drunk enough? And the answer is that it's all a matter of brain cells.
Hardy Greaves:
Brain cells?
Rannulph Junuh:
That's right Hardy. You see every drink of liquor you take kills a thousand brain cells. Now that doesn't much matter 'cos we got billions more. And first the sadness cells die so you smile real big. And then the quiet cells go so you just say everything real loud for no reason at all. That'ok, that's ok because the stupid cells go next, so everything you say is real smart. And finally, come the memory cells. These are tough sons of bitches to kill.
