Hackl300David Hackl, the director of gore laden trap-fest Saw V and production designer of three of the other movies in the series will be directing The Butcher Bride based on a book by Vince Churchill.

It tells the tale of a girl name Marlie who plans to elope with the son of the wealthiest family in town. But unfortunately her wedding plans are shall we say…cut short when a Halloween party goes horribly wrong prompting a ghost to inhabit the premises and torment anyone who ventures by.

We’re told that the book is full of sex as well as gore but given the American media’s sensitivity when it comes to all things titillating (watching someone get axed in half is preferable to showing any nipples), it remains to be seen how much of that will actually make it in.

Hackl was previously attached to direct Saw VI 3D (now you too can enjoy the sensation of being surrounded by disembodied fleshy bits), but he’s now made way for Kevin Gruetert.

StumbleUpon It!
