‘Saw V’ Director Infected With Viral ‘Strain’

Bloody Disgusting learned that Saw V director David Hackl is attached to get behind the camera for Strain, a new horror written by Jeff Howard and Mike Flanagan. Here’s the plot crunch we were sent: “Reunited at a destination wedding at a lush tropical resort, a group of friends take a day trip to a secluded island where they come across a monstrous new “strain” of a real-life predatory, deadly virus. As the “strain” overtakes them, they must face the awful dilemma of having to kill each friend who has become “infected”, to prevent unleashing the virus onto the mainland, and causing global epidemic of violent, horrific deaths.” Hackl is also attached to direct both Red Machine and The Butcher Bride.
