saw_1798.jpgA sequel is in the works to indie horror smash Saw, to be helmed by music video director Darren Lynn Bousman. Saw 2, with a script by Bousman, Leigh Whannel and James Wan (the original film's writer/star and writer/director, respectively), is being rushed into production in order to be ready for a Halloween release. Bousman has directed videos for the likes of The Dandy Warhols, The Meat Puppets, and Taking Back Sunday. The pic is produced by Twisted Pictures, a division of Evolution Entertainment, for Lions Gate Films. The original film premiered at Sundance and eventually scared up (get it? because it's scary?) $80 million.
