FILMMAKERS TALK SAW SEQUEL & DVD

Moviehole talked to SAW creators James Wan (writer/director) and Leigh Whannell (writer/star), and one of the subjects was the duo?s involvement in the recently announced SAW 2, which Lions Gate has already announced for a Halloween 2005 release. 'We don?t know exactly know what our full involvement is yet,' Whannell tells the site. 'We?d say we?ll be executive producers or overseeing it. It?s only in the early stages so I may have a hand in the writing. The film just opened, so it feels kinda early to be talking about a sequel. From the moment it opened at $18.3 [million], the sequel gets greenlit the next day. We haven?t had time to think about it. But the producers have had time; they find time to talk about the sequel,' he laughs. Wan adds, 'I don?t think I?ll be directing [it].' On its own, Fango has also learned that the sequel is being adapted from an existing serial-killer script that?s being retooled as a direct SAW follow-up to feature the villainous Jigsaw. Meanwhile, Wan and Whannell are deep into preparation on their follow-up film SHHH at Universal.

The pair also reveal that there may be more to the SAW DVD (due Feburary 15). 'We?ve done some stuff for it,' Wan says, and Whannell adds, 'I would?ve preferred to have done the commentary after the film got released, though. It?s hard to talk about the film until you know how it?s going to do. How self-deprecating you should be or how much fun you should have. On the commentary it?s just James and I, but we want to do some more?get some of the actors involved. It?s interesting?because if you?re shooting the next STAR WARS film you?d know you can shoot all this stuff and have a big special-edition DVD, but we didn?t expect SAW to even make it to theaters, so its not like we?ve been shooting a documentary from day one for the features. It?s all happened so quickly that you?re kinda asked, ?What have you got?? I?ve asked James to put some of his student films on there. I?ll make a deal with him; I?ll put some IN-ENTERTAINMENT stuff [the E-NEWS-style show on which Whannell was a roving reporter] on there if he puts some of his films in.'
