Man, I’m so glad this is happening ’cause I fucking LOVE the “SAW” movies. I love ’em all. All 7 films. It’s a pretty long series but each film is pretty smart storytelling. They all tell an actual story which is what I love about ’em. I also love the story of John Kramer. Pretty insightful stuff.
Lionsgate is moving forward with “SAW 8” which is currently titled, “SAW: Legacy”. Ever since the first SAW film came out in 2004 directed by James Wan, the series became such a smash hit. Each time a sequel came out every Oct., the film is a smash hit. Each film did very well in the box office so I’m not surprised they’re planning another one.
The 7th film kind of did leave open for another movie so it’s obviously not over yet. The Game isn’t over. Hear Jigsaw’s voice, “I want to play a game”.
Will Tobin Bell return as John Kramer/Jigsaw? Given the title that it is “Saw: Legacy”… hint the title, “Legacy”… it’s hinting you that the next film will be about chronicling the earlier films so there’s probably gonna be a lot of flashbacks. So yeah, I think there’s a very BIG change Tobin Bell will return.
Only thing is, though that John Kramer died of cancer in one of the earlier films so how would they bring him back? Would they do more flashbacks? Um no… I think that’s a lame idea. I think it would be more interesting if they can find a way to bring Kramer back from the dead. Keep in mind this is “horror” so anything is possible.
I love the SAW movies and I’m absolutely down with the new one. It’s good timing to do another one ’cause Tobin Bell is getting old… he’s in his 70’s now but I’m sure he’s still in good health to do one more movie.
