Saw Director James Wan to Adapt Nightfall
Posted 08.27.10 by Ryan
Director James Wan likely wasn't aware that he was starting an enduring horror franchise when he directed 2004's Saw. Six years later, and the franchise will finally end when its final installment Saw 3D opens on October 27, just in time for Wan to potentially start another franchise with an adaptation of the graphic novel, Nightfall.
SuperHero Hype reports that Wan, whose next movie Insidious will open next month at the Toronto Film Festival, found writer Scott O. Brown's 2007 graphic novel to be the perfect idea for his next feature.
The minute I heard the concept, I was in, and then reading the graphic novel cemented that. Like Saw it's a simple concept that, if executed correctly, will be so cool.
Said concept is this: a man is sentenced to a prison that he slowly realizes is run by vampires. The graphic novel was published by Platinum Studios, which is currently in production on an adaption of Cowboys and Aliens that Jon Favreau is directing.
