Even while Lionsgate was promoting the release of Saw 3D last July-October we’d been hearing internal rumblings that an eighth film would most definitely be happening – at least after the franchise took a
much needed short hiatus.
Liongate Vice Chairman Michael Burns recently spoke with CNBC and openly revealed that a new film was in the cards.
“I’m sure, some day, you’ll see Saw back in the picture,” Burns said, speaking on the potential return of Jigsaw and his infamous games of life and death.
Other than the upcoming The Hunger Games, Lionsgate doesn’t have any other major franchises (unless you count Tyler Perry’s name). Unless they push hard with You’re Next, doing another Saw is a very smart way to some financial gain.
Saw 3D was far from closure, which is why I personally would like to see another film. What do you say? What do you want to see?
