Making a return to the big screen after more than a decade, Robert Lieberman has agreed to assume the helming duties for a psychological revenge thriller titled "Tortured (2008/II)" for Twisted Pictures, Variety has revealed.
Written by Marek Posival, the picture concerns an upper-middle-class couple who seizes an opportunity to kidnap a pedophile after the person kidnaps and kills their only child. No word yet on cast lineup, but it is confirmed that Mark Burg and Oren Koules will both finance the film and produce with Carl Mazzocone.
Production on the movie is scheduled to start June this year in Toronto, Canada, after Twisted finishes filming on "Saw IV", which has just begun shooting. Much of the crew from the latter flick are said to be used in "Tortured" before they move to the studio's rock musical "Repo! The Genetic Opera."
