Saw Producers Say ‘It’s Time’ for a New Film


With Saw returning to theaters for its 10th Anniversary, had the chance to catch up with producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules and learned that there are already nascent plans for a new entry in the hit franchise!

“When ‘Saw’ came out [James Wan and Leigh Whannel] were so afraid of being ‘the ‘Saw’ guys,'” says producer Oren Koules. “They were trying to make their own mark. Now that they’ve made their own mark, they’re very comfortable to come back. We’re getting there. James and Leigh are absolutely going to put their mark on it. It’s one of the reasons we agreed to do this again. We kind of wanted to build it up.”

Koules goes on to say that a film could hit as early as 2016 and would likely make its debut at that year’s Comic-Con.

“Our goal,” Koules continues, “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 [Insidious Chapter 3]. Everyone has time and it’s time.”

But then James Wan offers his own thoughts on whether or not we’ll see more Saw films. Find out what he has to say over at!
