For a time everyone was worried that the previously announced Saw IV would bring doom upon the otherwise fantastic Saw franchise, but fortunately that is no longer the case. Fangoria spoke with Leigh Whannell, the father of the Saw franchise along with James Wan, who said that Saw IV would be coming back directed by Darren Lynn Bousman. Bousman directed both Saw II and Saw III, and is certainly familiar with the franchise and the direction of the films. Even better is that Leigh and James will keep a watchful eye over the project as executive producers.
Here is some of what Leigh had to say:
"James [Wan] and I, as executive producers, are still treating it like our baby; we'll still oversee it. I've definitely been privy to the ideas they've had and the scripts they've been writing, and it's coming along well. I'm actually excited."
