"Saw" Maker Gets a "Death Sentence"

by | May 5, 2006 | Comments

Original "Saw" director James Wan has signed on for Fox’s "Death Sentence," a revenge thriller from the author of the original "Death Wish" novel.

Says The Hollywood Reporter: "Penned by Ian Jeffers, the story centers on a father out for revenge after his family is attacked in a senseless and heinous gang-initiation crime. The father enacts a death sentence on each perpetrator involved with the crime. Hyde Park will fully finance and produce "Death Sentence," based on Brian Garfield’s novel. Garfield also wrote the novel "Death Wish," which spawned the vigilante franchise starring Charles Bronson."

James Wan’s "Saw" follow-up, "Silence," is presently in post-production. That film stars Ryan Kwanten, Laura Regan, Donnie Wahlberg, and Amber Valletta.
