Lionsgate Is Reportedly Working on an 8th SAW Movie Called SAW: LEGACY
It looks like Lionsgate still isn't done with the Saw franchise. Remember the last movie in the franchise was called Saw 3D: The Final Chapter? Well, it seems like they were just kidding about the final chapter part. According to The Tracking Board, the studio has hired writers Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to draft a script for the new film, which will be called Saw: Legacy. These are the writers behind films such as Sorority Row and Piranha 3D.
Director James Wan started the franchise, and I loved the first movie. Everything after that just got progressively worse. Since Saw, Wan has gone on to make some incredible movies that include Insidious, The Conjuring, and Furious 7. He's also set to direct Robotech and Aquaman. The filmmaker is reportedly attached to executive produce Saw: Legacy with the screenwriter of the original movie Leigh Whannell. That doesn't really mean much, though, because they both oversaw the other sequels and it didn't make them any better.
Since the Jigsaw killer is dead, I imagine that this new film will introduce us to a copycat killer that will launch a whole new series of films full of blood, gore, torture, death, mayhem, and carnage. I can't say that I'm excited about this because I imagine it's just going to be a rehash of what we've already seen. What do you think about Lionsgate making an eighth Saw movie?
