Kansas-born filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman returns to the "Saw" franchise to take helming duties on "Saw IV."

Previously helmed two recent installments of "Saw" series, Darren Lynn Bousman is now returning to the director's seat for the next one that is "Saw IV", Lionsgate Film and Twisted Pictures have officially confirmed yesterday, February 19, 2007. Announcing the statement were Lionsgate's President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions Peter Block and Senior Vice President of Acquisitions Jason Constantine, and Twisted's Mark Burg and Oren Koules.

"Having Darren behind the camera gives 'Saw IV' a real edge, so to speak," Block remarked. "He has led this franchise into box office history while proving himself a modern master of psychological terror."

In response to his appointment, Bousman openly showed his gratitude for being given the task for the third time, saying he is "very excited about picking up the reins on 'Saw IV,' and delving even deeper into the Jigsaw legend."

Production on the flick is scheduled to start on April 16 this year for six weeks to meet an October 26, 2007 release. Also making their return to the project are editor Kevin Greutert, director of photography David Armstrong, and production designer David Hackl with Daniel Jason Heffner, James Wan, Leigh Whannell, and Stacey Testro once again executive producing.
