Wicked Horror has just gotten word as to who will be at the helm of the latest installment in the Saw franchise. Word has come down via OMDC that frequent LionsGate collaborators The Spierig Brothers will be at the helm of the latest installment in the Saw franchise. The pair previously directed Daybreakers for the studio.
LionsGate has reportedly called upon the writers of Sorority Row and Piranha 3D to pen the screenplay for the latest installment in the series. Nearly all details about the project are being kept under wraps at this juncture. In fact, LionsGate has yet to even confirm the project’s existence in any official capacity. The picture is reportedly being executive produced by series creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell.
Saw marks the horror film debut of powerhouse director James Wan (The Conjuring) and the first feature film collaboration between Wan and Saw co-writer Leigh Whannell.
Saw follows the plight of two men that wake up trapped in an unfamiliar room, restrained by chains – a dead body lies between them. The pair are given a series of specific instructions by which they must abide and tasks they must complete if they are to make it out with their lives intact. Their will to live and resolve will be tested and their survival will ultimately depend on how much they are willing to sacrifice.
