While Darren Lynn Bousman is already hard at work in pre-production for his remake of Mother’s Day, the director of Repo! and Saw II-IV is already hard at work at another potential film, which would be adapted from a forthcoming comic book being revealed at the San Diego Comic Con later this month. Read on for details on Abattoir, a new horror film in the vein of Hellraiser.
“At SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL 2009, Radical is proud to announce Darren Bousman, the acclaimed director of Saw II, Saw III and Saw IV, at the Radical Publishing booth #3735 as he signs both a limited edition poster and copies of Radical’s San Diego Comic-Con 2009 Exclusive Preview Book which features Bousman’s chilling, supernatural upcoming release Abattoir.
Set for a 2010 debut, Abattoir chronicles real estate agent Richard Ashwalt, assigned the impossible task of cleaning up after a brutal massacre takes place at a mansion. As he cleans the blood-soaked grounds, a twisted old man journeys to the house with a sinister and terrifying purpose, and Richard is drawn into a web of shadows, murders and massacres that will shatter him to his very core…and make him run for his life.
“We’re ecstatic to showcase Darren’s work at this year’s Comic-Con International,” said Radical Publishing’s President and Publisher Barry Levine. “In addition to being a director on the cutting edge of Hollywood horror, Darren is an accomplished writer with an incredibly thrilling story to tell. We’re proud to have Darren at our booth for this year’s Comic-Con.”
Bousman’s directing credits include the horror epics Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV as well as 2008’s Repo! The Genetic Opera. His writing credits include Saw II, 2000’s Butterfly Dreams and 2001’s Identity Lost.
Darren Bousman will be signing on Saturday, July 25th at the Radical Publishing booth.
