Saw producers planning to revive horror series

With the Saw series set to enjoy its 10th anniversary this Halloween, producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules have revealed plans are afoot to breathe new life into the franchise.

The last film in the series was released back in 2010, but with the original set to be re-released later this month, it seems that Jigsaw may not be done with us after all…

"James [ Wan ] and Leigh [ Whannell ]…when Saw came out they were so afraid of being ‘the Saw guys’,” said Koules in an interview with STYD . “Now that they’ve made their own mark, they’re very comfortable to come back.”

“Our goal is to go to Comic-Con, not next summer but the summer after with our heads up saying, ‘here we go.’ James and Leigh are comfortable with the success they’ve had. And it’s time. James is in post on his movie. Leigh’s on post on his. Everyone has time and it’s time.”

Just where is left for the series to go remains to be seen, but there is certainly some appeal in seeing Wan and Whannell return to the franchise that made them famous. Time to dust off that pig mask…
