Exclusive: Lionsgate Is Actively Developing Next ‘Saw’



The game isn’t over until Jigsaw says it’s over…

While there’s nothing official on paper, nor a direction set in stone, Lionsgate is incredibly active in developing an eighth Saw, based on the franchise created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, sources tell Bloody Disgusting exclusively.

The last time we saw Jigsaw in action was in the 2010 Saw 3D.

After a three year break, Lionsgate is back to their torturous ways and seeking a new direction for the franchise that took over Halloween for nearly a decade. Since its exit, Paranormal Activity has become the reigning champion of the month of October (sans this year).

There appears to be no rush on Lionsgate’s part as they’re seeking the perfect take to move forward. There were rumblings of a remake, while many insiders tell us they want to continue with Saw 8.

When something more solid comes into fruition, we’ll report back.
