UPDATE: ‘Saw III’ Director’s Got ‘The Right Stuff’?

While promoting Lions Gate Films’ Saw II (review), which opens in theaters everywhere this Friday, Donnie Wahlberg exclaimed that he’d like to direct Saw III. What we’ve been informed by one of the producers, “For the record, although I have no doubt that Donnie would be a great director, he’s not currently being considered as director of SAW III.” You can still read the article and check out a fun pic of Donnie inside…
Are you ready for this one? Jam Showbiz posted this bit from an interview with Saw II star Donnie Wahlberg:

There’s even been talk of having Wahlberg direct Saw III — the film’s ending definitely leaves room for another sequel — or perhaps a New Kids on the Block reunion tour, as a way of showing critics that they were the real deal all along.

And yet: “At the end of the day it’s all about self respect,” Wahlberg said. “It’s not really about proving anything to anyone else. In the end, it’s really about proving it to yourself.”

Of course this is not really the case, so please regard this as confirmed BS.
