Tobin Bell tells MTV News that he will reteam with “Saw” franchise director Darren Lynn Bousman for “Repo! The Genetic Opera.”
The near future set, hyper-violent rock opera follows a group of legalized human organ repossession men. The project is unique in that there is no dialogue per se, rather seventy seven hard rock songs right from the beginning to the very end.
Bousman describes the setup – “Murder becomes sanctioned by law. So, if you buy a heart and can’t afford it, someone can burst through the door and take your heart out…and they don’t get in trouble for it. The very first scene sees [some repo men] singing while they are ripping the spinal cord out of someone.”
Bell says that “Yes, I can sing. I’m a guitar player and a singer…I did hear some of the music, and it’s great. I think this movie is going to be remarkable.”
