SAW’S Leigh Whannell Wants To Give You COOTIES

Nothing and I do mean nothing that Leigh Whannell or his partner in crime James Wan comes up with surprises me. These two are sort of the new “dynamic duo” or horror and no idea sounds too ridiculous or far-fetched to actually work and scare the living crap out of you which brings me to this next story. Leigh Whannell has come up with concept that will take you back to your elementary school days. Remember COOTIES? Well, so does Leigh but he’s got a bit of a different take on it:

“The film begins when a mysterious virus hits an isolated elementary school, transforming the pre-adolescent children into a feral swarm of mindless savages. An unlikely hero must lead a motley band of teachers in the fight of their lives against the monstrous pupils.”

Elijah Wood is staying in the horror fray it appears as he is listed as both producer and star of this one. They have also named Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott as co-directors. This one is slated to start lensing on July 15th in LA. Keep it here and I will keep you updated.
