Rumors have persisted for years that Lionsgate wasn’t quite done with the Saw franchise — even though the last sequel was titled Saw Three-dimensional: The Final Chapter. But headings are meaningless providing there’s money to make, and with that pesky Paranormal Activity franchise out of the way (for now), it appears like Lionsgate is reviving your franchise that released us to James Wan, Jigsaw and a multi-film timeline consequently convoluted it would give Quentin Tarantino the particular spins.
The report stems at Bloody-Disgusting, so go with a grain of salt, and so on. Lionsgate has reportedly used Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to piece of software the eighth Saw movie, which would be named Saw: Legacy. Paging Matt Singer, organic beef have another legacyquel about our hands.
Stolberg and Goldfinger’s previous breaks include Sorority Row, Piranha 3D and Piranha 3DD, so when they have a strong knowledge of the horror type, they’re more acquainted with the campier, sillier side of things — a slam dunk the guys you might think about for a new Saw movie, but perhaps Lionsgate possesses other ideas.
The initially Saw film was a reach when it was released inside 2004, as a low-budget, creative horror film from a then-unknown director named Wayne Wan and his screenwriting partner, Leigh Whannell. Wan along with Whannell continued to produce the increasingly, ridiculously complicated sequels; Whannell wrote Saw II and Saw III intended for director Darren Lynn Bousman just before filmmaking duo Meat Melton and Marcus Dunstan took over some remaining films inside the series.
Wan and Whannell will continue on as professional producers, which — if it report is true — is a bit of optimistic news pertaining to die hard fans of the franchise. However, Wan is keeping quite busy: his sequel to The Conjuring hits cinemas this summer, and he’utes set to primary Aquaman for Warner Bros. next.
