Production designer-turned-director David Hackl has informed that he is now working closely with "Saw IV" scribes Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton to outline the story for "Saw V."
Continuing the tradition to bring up one installment of the "Saw" franchise each year, the series' production designer David Hackl has pointed out to ShockTillYouDrop.com that
works have already begun on the next chapter of the gory horror tale, "Saw V."
Hackl, who this time takes the director's chair for the project, revealed that he is currently outlining the flick's story alongside writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton with "Saw IV" Darren Lynn Bousman set to oversee the script.
"We have about a week to write the outline, then the script by the end of the month. We're really just throwing down the ideas now and it's coming together quickly," the man remarked. "I've been with Darren on all of [the sequels], we've always arrived just before Christmas with a script that needed a lot of shakedown but, before shooting, [the script] is really tight."
In carrying out his task of shaping the movie, the Canadian native also informed that the art director for the latest two "Saw" movies, Anthony A. Ianni, is now handling the production design matters for him. Further, he expressed his hope to have "a lot of the crew come over [to Saw V] because I'm looking forward to the support of the people I've had as my art department team."
Shooting for the film is learned to about get started after the first of the new year for a release in October of 2008. Meanwhile, Mark Burg and Oren Koules reportedly will once again become the producers as they did before in all four installments of the series.
