New Saw film currently in active development at Twisted Pictures! -----------------------------------------------------------------
As if fans weren't already excited enough for the Chris Rock-fronted installment of the hit horror franchise, it's been revealed that
production company Twisted Pictures are currently in active
development on a tenth Saw film! (Via JoBlo)
Though plot details are, understandably, being kept under wraps for
the time being, news of the project comes as a listing in the latest
issue of Production Weekly shows that a new film named Saw X is in
active development at the studio, with Twisted co-founders Oren
Koules and Mark Burg once again producing of the studio. While this development is considered active, it should be noted that the studio
may elect to postpone or cancel it outright should the next film underperform at the box office.
Interestingly, franchise creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell are
also attached as producers on the project, much like they have been
on the previous installments past their writing and directing
tenures in the series, though it marks the first time the former is producing via his Atomic Monster Productions label. Given the banner
was only founded in 2014 and both he and Whannell already have full
dance cards, it's unlikely this extra bit is indicative of a deeper involvement from the duo.
The original Saw's box office success spawned a franchise of six
sequels, the first two of which had Whannell return as writer and
producer alongside Wan and the first three helmed by Darren Lynn
Bousman. After initially concluding with Saw: The Final Chapter in
2010, the series found new life with the prequel/sequel Jigsaw in
2017, whose box office success helped convince Lionsgate to keep
the franchise rolling with the forthcoming Spiral, which appears to
be set narratively after the events of the 2017 film though its
deeper connections to the titular killer are currently unknown.
The Chris Rock-fronted Spiral: From the Book of Saw is set to hit
theaters on May 14!
