Most people were under the impression that Saw 3D was the last installment in Lionsgate’s Saw franchise. At least, for a good while (until Hollywood’s next bout of remake/boot flu.) However, a recent Bloody Disgusting report states that Lionsgate is “incredibly active in developing an eighth Saw,” with the studio already in the process of looking for a new director.
The news comes off as a surprise because the last film made a paltry $68 million worldwide, a take home that would be embarrassing even for an international release that isn’t direct-to-video, especially one that is considered high profile and released on 3D (which is meant to boost ticket price).
…and there’s also the fact that Jigswa was already killed several films ago.
