James Wan, executive producer on the Saw movies, has posted on his blog that he’s “very excited” about writing the plot to the Brash game of the film.

“Leigh and I are very excited about this new venture,” he said, although we have no idea who Leigh is, if we’re being honest. “We are big gaming fans and we think it would a great opportunity to continue the Saw legacy into a different platform/medium. Keeps things fresh for us anyway. A lot of people have asked us if we would be interested in writing another SAW movie… Well, we are writing another Saw story… But it’s for the game. We’re treating this story like the Saw movies with lots of twists and turns. We have no idea how that is going to apply to a computer game format, considering that most games are generally pretty simple in it’s plotting. Maybe its a good thing that Leigh and I are naive to the video game world and that we’re writing it like its a movie!”

Brash confirmed it was working on the game that’s likely to make Jack Thompson’s head explode at the end of January.

    Leigh Whannell has written all the Saw movies (except IV), and exec-produced all of them, too. He also acted in the first one. I <3 Saw.

    I haven’t seen any of them. I’m a massive horror fan, so I don’t know why. I’m saving them up, I think.
