Darren Lynn Bousman to Helm Abattoir


Darren Lynn Bousman (“Saw” films) will write and direct Abattoir for Radical Pictures, reports Variety.

The trade says Radical’s publishing arm is in the process of turning the property into a graphic novel, based on the concept by Bousman and writing-producing partner Michael Peterson. Artwork for the graphic novel will be unveiled at Comic-Con.

In Abattoir (the French word for slaughterhouse), a real estate agent assigned to clean up the remnants of a massacre that took place in a mansion he hopes to sell is visited by a twisted old man who draws the agent into a web of shadows, murders and massacres.
