Maintaining his collaboration with "Saw" franchise director Darren Lynn Bousman, Tobin Bell has confirmed to MTV that he is set to work under the Kansas-born filmmaker again in musical flick "Repo! The Genetic Opera."

"Yes, I can sing," the actor confessed, saying he is looking forward to the flick. "I'm a guitar player and a singer…I did hear some of the music, and its great. I think this movie is going to be remarkable."

Described as the "Brazil"-meets-"Rocky Horror Picture Show" movie, the project will be made based on an original story by co-composers and screenwriters Terrance Zdunich and Darren Smith which tells about organ repossession in the future.

"The idea is that everybody is buying up organs, and they cannot afford to pay for these organs. Thus, legalized organ repo-men come into the picture," Bousman, who joined Bell in the interview, informed. "So, if you buy a heart and can't afford it, someone can burst through the door and take your heart out…and they don't get in trouble for it."

Revealing more info, Bousman further added that he is working alongside a member of Nine Inch Nails on the music for the picture, which will be set in 2018.

"The music is so catchy, you can't get it out of your head," so he promoted while promising he will not cast any lame musical singers in his film. "These are all actors who sing, not singers who can act."
