Lionsgate Looking to Reboot the Saw Franchise?

Chris Savage

I love this genre and all, and I hate to be the one that moans, but damn. There are a slew of independent filmmakers out there with ideas of absolute gold, but instead studios decide to take the ‘safe’ route of rebooting or remaking established names. Its just a shame that such talent goes to waste.

Anyway, back to the news story. For now I insist that you take this with a grain of salt. The guys over at B-D have exclusively learned that Lionsgate is tinkering with the idea to reboot the Saw franchise.

Apparently, Lionsgate have decided to instead reboot the Saw franchise rather than rebooting Twilight, that the site previously reported.

Nothing has been made official and everything at this time is simply in an infant stage. The site also insists that an eighth installment isn’t out of the cards either, so either way more Saw is on the horizon.

At this time it is anyone’s game, but I ask you, do you want more Saw, even if it is a reboot?

        Enough with the reboots, remakes and sequels already! It’s like being expected to eat nothing but peanut butter sandwiches every day where the only option for something different is either crunchy or smooth. I’ve lost all hope in the Hollywood money machine and look solely to independent features for originality.

        Not only is this a terrible idea. The franchise alone was garbage. Sadly this world has come to terrible movie plots and excessive sequels. Seriously, if Jigsaw winds up in space….grrr

        I think they should just move forward, to try to reboot anything
