Bousman Wants A Repo Franchise

Multiple “Saw” sequel director Darren Lynn Bousman has just finished editing “REPO! The Genetic Opera!” and reveals on his blog that he hopes to turn the horror-musical into another franchise.

“If I have my way – I am only leaving one franchise to start another! Maybe this time next year as SAW VI is gearing up – I will working on REPO II… One can only dream.”

He also talks about not being involved in the fifth “Saw” film which David Hackl will helm – “I have to be honest – it’s a hard pill to swallow… Handing over the baton – – passing the torch – – call it what you will… But for the last three years SAW has been my life… Last week, they opened up the preproduction office for V. It feels strange not to be there… It feels even stranger knowing that those production offices are only two blocks from where I am now… But, I feel confident in the fact that the franchise is in great hands with David – and that it was time for me to move on.”

“Repo! The Genetic Opera!” and “Saw V” both open this Fall.
