Saw IV's Darren Lynn Bousman isn't probably too happy about this news, what with his Repo! The Genetic Opera going into production. It seems another film about organ repossession is getting made as well. According to Variety, Jude Law and Forest Whitaker have joined the Universal film The Repossession Mambo.
The project has the exact plot description as Bousman's Repo!, only its not a musical. The script centers on artificial organ replacements that can be bought on credit. If you default on your bill, repo men can come and take those organs back, killing you instantly.
The Repossession Mambo marks the directorial debut of Miguel Sapochnik. Eric Garcia wrote the screenplay based on his own novel with help from Garret Lerner. It has been in the planning stages for four years.
The film begins shooting this summer.
