Hot off the box office disappointment of Saw VI, Lionsgate is surely eager to cash in on the fast-sinking ship that is the Saw franchise. So eager, in fact, that they’ve announced a release date for their 3D sequel.
I almost feel bad for Saw VI. The flick delivered on all counts; yet, it performed really badly at the box office. We can only hazard a guess that the damage done by the abysmal Part V left audiences so cold that the new film was something they weren't going to bank on this year. David Hackl, director of Part V, now has a date for redemption with his new flick Saw VII 3D.
Yep. Even though Saw VI is just days away, we're already talking about Saw VII. Hard to believe but true nonetheless. At the Saw VI press conference today (look for a full report soon), producer Mark Berg spoke a bit about how they're handling the 3D process for the next entry in Jigsaw's long list of games.
Even though Saw VI hasn't even graced a single screen yet, Lionsgate is pushing forward with the seventh entry into its long-running franchise entitled Saw VII 3D.
We’re still nearly three months away from Saw VI’s theatrical release, but Lionsgate seems pretty confident that they’ve already got your hard-earned bucks in their pocket. So much so that they’re pulling out all the gimmicky stops for 2010’s Saw VII.
Lionsgate had lots of Saw themed surprises in store for fans at this years SDCC -- including the official green-light being given for the seventh sequel in the franchise, along with the name of the director to undertake these gamey goings-on!!
Even though not a single ass has been placed in a theatre yet for Saw VI and won't be for months, that hasn't stopped the powers that be from getting quickly to work on Saw VII.
