Last week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Director Lee Whannell in our studio.
Whannell has lots of other producing/writing credits including the Sony/FilmDistrict releases for INSIDIOUS and also as co-creator of SAW, which Whannell wrote and starred in. In addition to his work on the screenplay for SAW II, Whannell wrote and starred in SAW III and is an Executive Producer on the SAW Franchise. He is also a creative consultant on the SAW video game. The franchise is recognized as one of the Most Successful Horror Movie Series and named so by the Guinness World Records in 2010. Lionsgate released the latest installment, JIGSAW, on October 27, 2017.
Whannell has a new film coming out on June 1st called 'UPGRADE' (and you MUST WATCH THE TRAILER BELOW. IT IS THRILLING!). The future of technology has been highly debated recently in the world we live in now, and 'UPGRADE' deals with the major aspects of it. Lee and I talk about this in our interview below! :)
