Wan Protects "Saw IV"

by | June 14, 2007 | Comments

James Wan directed the original "Saw," then turned the sequels over to Darren Lynn Bousman. His partner, Leigh Whannell, continued to write the scripts.

With "Saw IV" pressing ahead, even Whannell stepped back with Wan in their producorial roles, but the creator of Jigsaw promises fans the franchise is in good hands.

"It is tricky," Wan admitted. "It’s the rules of diminishing sequels. It’s hard to keep it fresh but it’s such a big franchise, so it’s pretty scary. We try to make sure that it keeps going and Lionsgate and Evolution are doing such a great job in pushing it along."

Wan also teased that new writers Marcus Dunstan, Patrick Melton and Thomas Fenton have taken his ball and run with it. "Some of the stuff they’ve come up with for the sequels are pretty crazy. I can’t say too much but we’ll see."

"Saw IV" will be out this Halloween.
