Original 'Saw' director and co-creator James Wan has been set to direct 'Nightfall,' a film adaptation of the 2007 graphic novel, according to DeadlineHollywood. The premise: a man is sentenced to time in a prison run by vampires. The film is a co-production between Platinum Studios and Aurora Productions. Platinum is currently shepherding 'Cowboys and Aliens,' the Jon Favreau-directed Old West alien invasion flick.
