Directors Darren Lynn Bousman (SAW II - SAW IV) and David Hackl (SAW V) have found new horror properties to take a stab at. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Bousman, who also wrote SAW II and directed REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, will helm NINETY. The film follows a serial killer out to set a new record by murdering 90 victims. The script comes from Scott Milam, who also penned Bousman's upcoming MOTHER'S DAY.

Hackl, who also served as a production designer for Bousman on SAW II - SAW IV and as second unit director on REPO!, will serve as a director on the supernatural thriller THE BUTCHER BRIDE. An adaptation of the novel by the same name by Vince Churchill, the film centers around a crazed woman's downward spiral after she witnesses a gruesome massacre as a young girl, 30 years prior during a Halloween costume ball. Assuming the murderous identity of The Butcher Bride, the woman dons a blood-soaked wedding dress and haunts the Silas Mansion, making anyone who trespasses pay for their curiosity with their life. The film will be Hackl's second as a director, following SAW V.

Both films will be in 3D, with BRIDE being shot with the technology while NINETY will be converted in post-production. Check out what Hackl had to say to Shock Till You Drop about what we can expect from THE BUTCHER BRIDE 3D after the jump!

Hackl on what we can expect from THE BUTCHER BRIDE visually:

"This is an insane paranormal, thriller that just keeps getting better and better right to the finish. A great script has to paint pictures in my head and my head is exploding with the vivid imagery of this story. From the raucous, sexy Halloween party to the Butcher Brides bloody reign of terror in the Silas Mansion, we hope to shoot the movie in 3D for a more terrifying experience."

Hackl on how 3D will lend itself to THE BUTCHER BRIDE:

"The visual richness of The Butcher Bride is perfect for 3D. It won’t be the gimmicky in your face shit - although there may be some - but rather the feeling that you are right there in the vast, haunted Silas Mansion where you can almost touch that spot on the wall where the scratch marks are still caked with dried blood."
