Bloody-Disgusting learned of some really interesting information last night that was quasi-confirmed. We know for a fact that Lionsgate is now planning on shooting both Saw V and Saw VI back-to-back with David Hackl attached to direct (details here), but something we’re awaiting confirmation on is whether or not Jigsaw is taking a year off to breathe. We were told that as of right now Lionsgate is planning on skipping October 2008 for the next Saw film, although that news is yet to be confirmed. Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, who wrote Saw IV, is developing the screenplays for both sequels. The fourth installment hits theaters October 26.
