In the latest of the flurry of recent fright-film announcements by Dimension Films, Variety reports that the company is teaming with Twisted Pictures on a shocker called WICHITA, with Darren Lynn Bousman, who made his directorial debut on SAW II and is deep into preparations on SAW III, set to helm.
A spec script by newcomer Scott Milam, WICHITA is set in the titular Midwestern town, and explores the effects of a horrible crime on eight of its residents. "What's terrifying about this story is that it's based in reality and could happen to anyone," Milam tells the trade. "It's a slice of Americana gone bad and getting worse." Mark Burg and Oren Koules will produce WICHITA, which will presumably go before the cameras this fall once Bousman has wrapped up SAW III for its Halloween release.
