More SAW Movies Coming? So Much for the End


Will Guyatt the PR Manager for IGN entertainment emailed us today to let us know that apparently the SAW franchise which was reportedly ending with the last film.. is apparently not so dead.

Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell suggest that the series will come back and explain what it would take for them to return to the franchise. I am a big fan of the original SAW film and it has gone on to make over a billion dollars but seriously how can they possibly milk this concept further?

Jigsaw in space? Jigsaw in Medieval times? Jigsaw fights the confederates in the civil war? Watch the video below and leave some feedback.

        They didn’t say anything that anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the film business didn’t already know. No franchise earns as much money as SAW has and stays dead forever.

          well said… even if you are taking a sideways shot at us. We all knew when it was announced that SAW was over that one day Jigsaw would return in some new iteration

        Oh goody! Well at least now I will have something that I can continue to gripe about for the rest of my life.

        As a fan of the franchise I am torn
        – they killed Jigsaw off (Well John Kramer) in the 3rd movie and kind of cheated in the other 4 movies where they had ‘flashbacks’ of him training Hoffman/Amanda/Gordon
        But what can they do other than go over past history and have Dr Gordon doing the killing?
        – that or Hoffman somehow escapes from his ‘public toilet prison’

        I just hope they don’t reboot the franchise

        Perhaps they will make a new SAW movie, focusing entirely on the main character putting together a 5,000 piece jigsaw puzzle, only to find one piece missing at the end. The character then goes insane. There you go. The trap in this movie is actually the audience sitting through 90 minutes of somebody putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Truly terrifying! :-)

        If they can get these two back to write and direct another Saw movie that would be great. These two really know horror and how to make good movies and I believe these are the only two people who can breathe new life into the Saw Franchise.

        Well, I was hoping, but I knew it wasn’t dead. So I’m not surprised at all.

        … muthafucka. They lied straight to everyone’s faces. Aw well if its a sequel/spinoff it will be bearable. If they start remaking/rebooting the movie I will fcking snap a biscuit.

        awesome, more sequels to a bad franchise. The first one was good, but they beat it right to death again and again and again etc..

      9. Ron Nocella April 12, 2011 at 11:32 pm

        Everything went downhill after the 3rd film. The series should have ended as a trilogy. I watched 4 and thought it was a complete waste of time. Oh well! As annoyed as I am, I say BRING EM ON! Make a billion shitty sequels. I dont have to watch them. Ill be too busy watching movies that havent died 4 times already.

        These two guys are absolute MORONS!

        I am happy lol, I love every Saw movie. And I am not ashamed, I like them all. If they can bring it back perhaps with a new angle then I am excited. I am sure that there will be a good idea within it. I knew it wasn’t over, it is just over for this year…and possibly next year. Can’t wait for, hopefully, more news :)

        I still remember Leigh Whannell from when he use to do the film reviews on Recovery every Saturday morning on the ABC! And his unfortunate progression into the bath tub!

        They could do one now and do a terriffic trap for Casey Anthony.  We’d all love to see that one.
        Well worth Saw 8.  I’ll be there to watch.

        • Michael Compton March 27, 2012 at 4:47 pm

          dude, your idea has breathed new life into the Saw franchise. just keep having casey anthony in trap after trap after trap

        James Wan and Leigh whannel had nothing to do with the series after the 1st one. Insidious is favorite movie made by these 2

      15. BlackTequilaKiss April 25, 2012 at 9:09 pm

        Surprised? Nah. It’s like anything else nowadays, you get a good thing going and the studio doesn’t want to let go because they know it brings in the bucks. I’d love to see the franchise end but I had a idea it wouldn’t be any time soon. At least with the guys behind it focused on the next predictable film, it’ll free up the channels to other horror films that HOPEFULLY will contain some life; originality. I can only hope.

        SAW 8? Hmm…. stick to the basic principle of the first movie — a physical terror, and try to forget the words “torture porn” when making this. The best bit about the first three SAW movies was the psychological grip it had on everyone. Go beyond the ‘Se7en’ inspired premise and you got gold.

        My idea? The keyword is “apocalyptic” — take inspiration from American Psycho instead. The key to horror is subtle surprise, not overt-gore.
