Could this be an end of an era? According to writer Patrick Melton, Kevin Greutert’s upcoming Saw VII 3D could mark the very last entry into the famed blockbuster franchise. Just when things were getting fun again!
In an interview with a UK radio station 107.5 Demon FM late last year that our brothers in arms over at Latino Review transcribed, writer Patrick Melton dropped the following bombshell on fans:
“I think it’s going to end with Saw VII. I have a very strong feeling it’s going to end with Saw VII. That’s something we’re debating now. You saw in previous interviews or discussions where we thought Saw VIII would be the last one where we had the first trilogy and the second trilogy and then sort of a grand finale wrapped up in two films. But frankly because Saw VI hasn’t performed as well as we anticipated, the idea is well, why make two movies when we can make one really excellent movie that wraps up as best we can? And it’s going to be in 3D, which sort of adds to the spectacle. So if you had to ask me, I don’t own the franchise, nor do I run the studio, but I have a feeling, a strong feeling that it’s going to be Saw VII which will be also known as Endgame. And nothing’s official yet, but that’s where we’re hoping things will go.”
Interesting enough, but somehow we think that the series will indeed make it to eight. If it does well this October, you can count on it.
