Remember when we told you that Lionsgate was planning on remaking the Twilight films? You can go ahead and just replace “Twilight” with “Saw“…
Sources we trust tell Bloody exclusively that Lionsgate is tinkering with the idea of rebooting the Saw franchise, although an eighth film isn’t out of the cards. It should also be noted that nothing is official, and nothing has been decided. Things are at infant stages at this time, but rest assured, Jigsaw will return.
Saw was created by Australian filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell, who have gone on to collaborate on Dead Silence, Death Sentence and even Insidious. Saw premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival and opened in theaters October 29, 2004 to rave reviews. The first Saw has grossed over $100 million worldwide, with the several films breaking the $870 million mark worldwide.
Even though Saw 3D (released on October 29, 2010) was dubbed the “final” entry, we’ve been very firm (and public) in our stance that Lionsgate had more up their sleeve.
Are you ready to play another game?
