In our exclusive chat with Saw IV-VII, Feast I-III and The Collector writing team Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo spilled that they’re planning on shooting the sequel to the slasher this October! The Collector is now available at retailers everywhere; you can read about the plans for the sequel beyond the break.
The slasher follows the story of handyman and ex-con Arkin, who aims to repay a debt to his ex-wife by robbing his new employer’s country home. Unfortunately for Arkin, a far worse enemy has already laid claim to the property – and the family. As the seconds tick down to midnight, Arkin becomes a reluctant hero trapped by a masked “Collector” in a maze of lethal invention – the Spanish Inquisition as imagined by Rube Goldberg – while trying to rescue the very family he came to rob.
“Mickey Liddell [the executive producer of the first film] is gonna do it, and he’s gonna finance it, but I don’t know what the distribution plan would be,” Dunstan tells Bloody Disgusting. “It depends, I guess we’ll see what happens….the plan is to actually start shooting this October. That’s the loose plan that we have, so we’ll see if we can hit that.”
This is good news for The Collector fans, although whether Dunstan will be getting behind the camera again remains to be seen:
“Possibly,” Dunstan told us. “That could very well happen. If everything lines up appropriately, meaning if we’ve got the budget to do it right, and the time to do it right, then absolutely. I think it’d be nuts to not seriously consider that.”
In the meantime, you can get your dirty mitts on a copy of the first film, out now on DVD/Blu-ray.
