The first entry says that "The crew of Saw IV is 90% the exact same from Saw III... The production designer - costume designer - cinematographer - gaffers - grips - office staff - transportation - EVERYTHING the same" and the production will begin this week.
Bousman reflects on the previous Saw movies: "I have been very lucky as I have had a chance to grow as a director during my 'tenure' in the SAW universe. Each film allowing me to explore a different approach to horror... Saw II was more of an 'action' based horror film... A bunch of people running around a house with all kinds of fucked up traps awaiting them... Saw III was more emotional than Saw II - - I really got to explore relationships with characters - and while it was violent, the film played on many different levels... Saw IV - is a more intricate story than its predecessors - more tense - scarier and with a more of a foreboding sense of dread. I don't know what other franchise out there allows the director the freedom to explore such different sub-genres while still being a part of a popular horror franchise."
