How many of you are tired of hearing about the possibility of an eighth SAW film? How many are just tired of SAW films altogether? I have a foot in both camps and just a finger barely touching the circle of people actually looking forward to another movie featuring the deathly traps of Jigsaw. In a recent interview, Lionsgate Vice Chairman, Michael Burns merely hinted the possibility that Jigsaw will be back and not actually confirming the actual production.
In all honesty a new SAW film would be the film I am least interested in hearing about considering they have THE HUNGER GAMES releasing next year and another possible sleeper horror hit on their hands in the festival acclaimed, YOU’RE NEXT.
If a new SAW film is announced and made, I will not be surprised. I sort of lost interest or fell out of highly anticipating them after SAW 3 and gave up on seeing them in theaters after SAW 4. To this point I have seen all the sequels minus SAW 7 which I sat down and tried watching on Netflix Watch Instantly when it was added and ended up shutting it off after 15 minutes.
Financially, another SAW film might make sense since they make the studio money. Lionsgate is a studio that has mishandled titles I have really enjoyed like the recent Ryan Reynolds vehicle, BURIED. I would much rather the studio spend time bringing less Jigsaw and instead tries to find something new to unleash on the movie going public like they did with the original SAW film.
