Well, it seems that Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures are bringing back Saw, as it has been not only given an October 27th, 2023 release date but Kevin Greutert is also set to return in the director’s chair. He has previously worked on Saw VI and Saw. The Final Chapter, but also was responsible for editing the first five entries as well as its first spinoff, Jigsaw.
It’s the first entry since the reboot spinoff, Spiral, which starred Chirs Rock and Samuel L. Jackson. Bloody Disgusting’s John Squires was first to release the information and while it’s unclear how the film will tie into the franchise, it’ll be the tenth part. The only promise they can make is that we’ll get “all-new twisted, ingenious traps and a new mystery to solve” in the sequel.
Saw has become quite the cornerstone for modern horror. With as many franchise entries as it had, it still managed to find a way to add something unique with each new entry. Love them or hate them, the iconography from the Saw franchise was everywhere after the success of the first film, which was shot on a shoestring budget.
