Earlier this year it was reported that an eighth Saw film entitled “Saw: Legacy” was in the works. It looks like it’s happening as Lionsgate is determined to keep this franchise alive!
The studio hired writers Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to draft a script for the new film. These are the writers behind films such as Sorority Row and Piranha 3D.
The production details were discovered on a listing at IATSE873, which is a site that supports a union of stage, theater, and movie employees/operators. It reveals that the film will be shot in Toronto. James Wan, Leigh Whannell, Dan Heffner, and Oren Koules are all original producers on the film, and they have all come back for this next installment.
Saw isn’t going to win any awards except some razzies, but it’s an important part of the halloween tradition and I can’t wait.
