Darren Bousman in Pre-Production on Abattoir

Although Darren Lynn Bousman has been talking about it publicly since 2009 – not just here at Shock, but on his social media channels – the existence of his new film, Abattoir is being made “official” via a trade break at Variety today.

The director of Saw II – IV and The Barrens is in pre-production on the haunted house thriller for Radical Studios.

He’ll be working from a script by Chris Monfette.
