"Saw" Maker to Tackle "Scanners" Remake

by | March 1, 2007 | Comments

Darren Lynn Bousman, director of "Saw 2," "Saw 3," and the upcoming "Saw 4," will soon be helming a remake of David Cronenberg‘s "Scanners" for Dimension Films. They also signed a pretty good screenwriter for the gig…

…and that writer is David S. Goyer, whose flicks include "Dark City," "Blade," "Blade 2," and "Batman Begins."

For those who don’t remember the original "Scanners," click right here to check out the now-famous "exploding head" sequence. (It’s a pretty cool old Cronenberg flick, one that’d make for a great double feature with the man’s "Videodrome.")
