When James Wan signed on to direct Furious 7, he brought the Fast And Furious franchise up to the same number of films as Saw, the much different, but no less absurd series he spawned in 2004. And now that the former is officially back for a final trilogy, it seems like Saw‘s producers may not be willing to let a bunch of juiced-up cars and dudes outpace their fun-loving torture films. Bloody Disgusting is reporting from an anonymous source that Lionsgate is bringing Saw back for an eighth movie, written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (Piranha 3D) and titled Saw: Legacy. Wan and Saw writer/co-creator Leigh Whannell will executive produce.
If the news is true, it wouldn’t be altogether surprising, even though producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules’ attempt to bring the original back to theaters failed pretty spectacularly in 2014. Who wouldn‘t want to end the Saw series on a higher note than Saw 3D?
