Greutert Bemoans Saw VII Decision


He’s heading back to Toronto

Whether he likes it or not, Saw VI director Kevin Greutert is indeed heading back to Toronto to direct Saw VII.

In a blog post entitled “Woo hoo! Lawyers are sending me to Canada tomorrow!” he writes this (Update: This entry has since been pulled from his site.):

I just had the task of telling my 83 year old mother that no, I’m not going to be allowed to direct the movie we were all so excited about when my family last got together, and that I’m being forced to leave town before getting a chance to see her again. Yes, I’ll be filming people getting tortured YET AGAIN. So we’ll have to put off me making a film she can actually watch for another year.

Which, I presume, leaves Paramount high and dry and without a director for Paranormal Activity 2. Hey, we hear David Hackl’s looking for a gig now…

Furthermore, will Greutert find his happiness on the seventh Saw entry, scheduled to be done in 3D? I’d hate to be on that crew.
