    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!

    They won't match some of the stuff from the middle of the series. I wish they'd revived the Final Destination movies.
