I just wanted you to know that I tried really hard to work in a crack about Denise Richards being thrilled about this particular headline ... but I've never really enjoyed cheap shots all that much, so I'll just leave it at that. Bloody Disgusting is now reporting that Charlie Sheen has been hired by Twisted Pictures to star in their new untitled horror flick. It was last April when the news first hit that the duo behind the Saw franchise were hard at work on a new story to gross out audiences with.

This one will center on a happy couple whose child is kidnapped and then killed by a pedophile. Unsatisfied with the results of the court system, the two decide to kidnap their son's killer and exact a little revenge of their own. The film had originally been titled Tortured, which is pretty self-explanatory, but it looks like Mark Burg and Oren Koules might have dropped the title to avoid confusion with an upcoming crime thriller starring Laurence Fishburne.

Rob Lieberman has already been hired to direct Marek Posival's script. Liberman has mainly worked in TV but he has directed a few features, including Fire in The Sky back in 1993. Posival is a relative newcomer and this will officially be his first feature film. Now that Saw is hopefully wrapping up for good, it will be nice to see Twisted Pictures try something a little different -- with maybe the exception of the odd musical.
