Rob Lieberman will direct Tortured, a psychological revenge thriller written by Marek Posival. Variety says that Twisted Pictures partners Mark Burg and Oren Koules will finance the film and produce with Carl Mazzocone.
Shooting begins in Toronto in June, after Twisted wraps Saw IV, which just began production. The trade adds that much of the same crew will be used, and after Tortured, they will move on to Repo! The Genetic Opera, a rock musical to be directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who’s now helming his third “Saw” film.
In Tortured, an upper-middle-class couple’s life is destroyed when a pedophile kidnaps and kills their only child. Obsessed with revenge, the couple seizes an opportunity to kidnap the killer.
