Director Darren Lynn Bousman of Saw II and Saw III, whom we've previously interviewed and is all around one of the "coolest" directors, showed the horror fiends over at Bloody-Disgusting.com his short film titled "REPO! The Genetic Opera" that he made while on the set of Saw III. Although still only a short now, it's being used as a pitch to be made into a feature length film, and sounds incredible. Bloody-Disgusting.com recently picked up some of the first photos from the film to show off.
The original REPO! is a theatrical musical (which you can find more about here) about a time in the near future where financed body organs are subject to repossession by the Genetic Repo Men. The short currently stars Shawnee Smith from the Saw series, but I believe Bousman has stated in the past that if it were to be made he'd get an entirely new cast. Definitely check out the photos and hope that this actually gets made. Bloody-Disgusting.com has said it was amazing and I can only expect such from Bousman, and a feature length film I'm sure would earn its share of revenue as well as provide ample entertainment.
