One day, we will have a Saw 8 according to Lionsgate vice-chairman

12.07.2011

In Hollywood when someone says they are done with a franchise, don't count on it. Especially not something like SAW.

But I really thought they were done with all that. Nope. Why would I even think such a silly thing? There's nothing set in stone, only a quote from Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns. What did this Michael Burns have to say? "I'm sure, some day, you'll see Saw back in the picture."

Okay, so that's not exactly a firm commitment but it lets you know that Lionsgate would like to see more from their horror cash cow. However, when Shock Til Ya Drop last spoke to the film's producers they said that they would not feel comfortable making anymore installments unless they heard a pitch that blew their minds.

I feel comfortable knowing the producers said that. I know a few of you really enjoy the franchise. The idea was really innovative in my opinion, but I feel like they just drove it into the ground.

The negativity toward this franchise cracks me up. People focus on the number of installments, instead of the content. There is continuity and consistency. The story unfolds in a very interesting way (very Lost-esque). Through flashbacks, it becomes much deeper and more substantial with plot and character development and revelations that result in stronger progression for the "present" storyline(s). People, who I'll bet haven't watched the series, act as if there is just one film after another

People, who I'll bet haven't watched the series, act as if there is just one film after another just completely randomly that has nothing to do with the one that came before. That being said, I don't really see the point in another film being made because VII ended perfectly. There are implications that are made about Jigsaw's legacy continuing, having affected numerous people who credit him with "helping/saving" them, but it doesn't need fleshed out any further.

Per usual, you fail to refute anything. Sorry, but the Mr. Know-it-all, hipster routine doesn't work with me. You either offer legitimate arguments and explain precisely which point(s) you are referring to or your words are invalid. Period.

I was a HUGE fan of the franchise. I loved it so much. Then Saw VII happened.

Being a long time and dedicated Saw fan, I am relieved that this is not a confirmation. Saw 7 was far from perfect but ended on the right note and tied up all the loose knots. Just please let the series remain dead and give it justice, Lionsgate.

Let me get this straight. The news is, maybe someday there will be another Saw movie ?

Let's write an article about how someday, maybe, a director, let's say David Fincher, will make another movie.

I'm sorry, you have a point there...this isn't a story, it's gossip and a poor example of journalism...
