Bousman Gears Up for His Third "Saw" Fest

by | February 21, 2007 | Comments

Not too long ago director Darren Lynn Bousman said he was saying goodbye to the "Saw" franchise, but with the clock running out on pre-production on "Saw 4," he ultimately accepted a third invitation to the director’s chair.

Yep, after helming such varied films as "Saw 2" and "Saw 3," Mr. Bousman will indeed be returning for "Saw 4," which begins shooting mid-April in Toronto. Earlier nerd-buzz indicated that production designer David Hackl would be stepping up to the directorial plate, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.

Fortunately Darren B. does have a non-"Saw" project cooking between Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate. It’s a rather strange-sounding piece called "Repo! The Genetic Opera," but I’m guessing that flick won’t get underway until "Saw 4" is put to bed … or he’s roped back in to "Saw 5."

Ah, and it seems that the final "Saw 4" screenplay has been chosen; it’s the one written by "Feast" scribes Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton.

"Saw 4" opens on October 26th. (And did you know that the "Saw" trilogy has grossed over $400 million worldwide, not including DVD? Yowch!)
