‘As Long as Chris Rock is Not in This’: Internet Divided After New Saw Movie Gets Official Release Date

The horror franchise Saw is created by Australian filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Whannell. It consists of nine feature films and additional media. The first eight films revolve around the fictional serial killer John “Jigsaw” Kramer, while the ninth movie revolves around a copycat killer while still keeping continuity with the previous films. With the announcement of a 10th film in the Saw franchise, the internet is divided as some fans are in favour of another Saw movie while some others are against it.

For now, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures are keeping the plot and characters under wraps at this time but have promised that the film will “capture their hearts — and other body parts — with all-new twisted, ingenious traps and a new mystery to solve.”

Franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules said that they are working on what the fans have always been asking and are planning to bring the same for them.

“We have been listening to what the fans have been asking for and are hard at work planning a movie that Saw aficionados and horror fans alike will love”.

They further say:

“And part of that is giving the reins to Kevin Greutert, director of Saw VI, which is still one of the fans’ favourites in the entire series. More details will be revealed soon.”
