How many Saw films were there? It seems like twenty were crammed into the franchise’s six year run (2004-2010), but now producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules feel like a four-six year break is long enough for people to want more of them. Speaking with Shock Til You Drop over Saw‘s 10th Anniversary, Brug and Koules want another Saw film by 2016:
James [Wan] and Leigh [Whannell]…when Saw came out they were so afraid of being ‘the Saw guys’,” Koules told Shock Till You Drop, “and they were trying to make their own mark. Now that they’ve made their own mark, they’re very comfortable to come back…We kind of wanted to build it up. Our goal is to go to Comic-Con, not next summer but the summer after [about 2016] with our heads up saying, ‘Here we go.’ James and Leigh are comfortable with the success they’ve had. And it’s time.
Now that Saw is returning to theaters for a week starting October 31st for its 10th Anniversary, are you ready for more torture? I’m good, thanks.
