Brash revs up Saw for '09

Publisher's tie-in to Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures horror movie will feature original storyline and will launch alongside next film in October 2009.


One of the first projects hinted at when Legendary Pictures CEO and 300 executive producer Thomas Tull and media mogul Bert Ellis secured $400 million in funding to form Brash Entertainment was a game tie-in to Lionsgate's macabre Saw horror film series. Today, Brash officially announced that Saw will arrive on "next-gen platforms" alongside the next installment in the film franchise in October 2009.

Details on Saw have yet to be puzzled out, but Brash says it will be collaborating closely with Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures on the game. While it will tie in to the Saw universe, the game will have its own storyline that will attempt to fill in some of the backstory of film antagonist Jigsaw, as well as clear up some of the unanswered questions left by previous installments in the film series.

Brash has licensed Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 for Saw, though a developer has yet to be named for the project. Updates on Saw can be found on the game's Web site, which also launched today.
