He was once in talks to direct Saw IV, however, Darren Lynn Bousman returned as the director. Hackl has directed Saw V.[2] It was initially reported that Hackl would direct Saw V and Saw VI.[3] It was later reported that Hackl would only direct Saw V, and that Saw VI would be directed by Kevin Greutert, the editor on all the Saw films to date.[4] Despite negative critical reviews and mixed fan reviews, his direction in Saw V has been referred by Digital Spy as "slick direction."
