‘Saw’ Creator James Wan The Warden of ‘Nightfall’

James Wan, who co-created and directed the original Saw, has been set to direct Nightfall, the film adaptation of the graphic novel, reports Deadline. The film is a coproduction between Scott Mitchell Rosenberg’s Platinum Studios and William Stuart’s Aurora Productions. The premise: a man is sentenced to time in a prison run by vampires. The graphic novel was published in 2007 and written and created by Scott O. Brown with art by Ferran Xalabarder. Wan will oversee the development of a script. His latest film, Insidious, plays in the Midnight Madness program at the upcoming Toronto Film Festival. “The minute I heard the concept, I was in,” Wan said. “Reading the graphic novel cemented that. Like Saw, it’s a simple concept that, if executed properly, will be so cool.” Platinum Studios is still in post on their adaptation of Dylan Dog: Dead of Night.
