“Saw” and “Insidious” director James Wan has locked down an eight-film deal with Icon Entertainment International reports Variety.
Wan will produce two scary, low-budget genre movies per year for the company, the first being “House of Horror” based on a story idea of his and which has Javier Gutierrez attached to direct. Max La Bella penned the screenplay while Wan and Lee Clay will produce.
Wan says he has various ideas for films but he knew he wouldn’t be able to direct them all, this way he gets to produce them while leaving the heavy work in the hands of select upcoming filmmakers. He might also direct at least one if the timing works out.
