Those of you who are concerned with more new blood being injected into the Saw franchise can breath easily; though production designer David Hackl is now on board as director for Saw V, director Darren Bousman told STYD recently that he’ll likely be shooting the remake of Scanners at the same time as Saw V rolls, so he’ll be keeping a close eye on the proceedings.
The script, written by Saw IV penners Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, is coming along, with the plan to come in just before Christmas with a final draft, as they’ve done with the last three films. Seems a bit insane, to churn out a sequel so fast, but at this point the entire Twisted crew has been working on this franchise for so long I doubt it feels like they ever stop.
Producer Oren Koules gave some insight as to just how long they feel the Saw franchise can stay alive for ”We’ll never start a sequel unless we feel good.” he told the site, ”We’ll actually spend money in prep and shut it down if it’s not good. If the story and the individual character stories right, then we’ll go. If not, we’ll skip a year. That’s just been our motto.”
Stay tuned for more Saw franchise news very soon!
