After Saw II brought in $60 million at the box-office in less than two weeks and an ending that obviously leads to another film in the Saw franchise it should come as no surprise to anyone that there will indeed be a Saw III.
The news comes via Saw and Saw II producer Gregg Hoffman, a.k.a. “The Puppermaster”, over at the official House of Jigsaw Message Boards where he made the following post:
First of all, thank all of you for your support. The SAW II opening exceeded our wildest expectations and you guys had a lot to do with it. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
Now.. a few comments.
1) RELAX!!!! We just finished SAW II. Yes, there’s going to be a SAW III, and yes, we will do our best not to fuck it up. We’re going to try for next year, but if it’s not right when we’d have to start shooting, we’ll wait.
2) There are NO CONFIRMED cast members for SAW III yet.
3) There is no director confirmed yet.
4) The title is not S3W. That’s ridiculous. It reminds me of when everyone thought the title of SAW II was SAW II: HACKSAW.
Let us catch our breath, and then we’ll keep you posted on the next installment.
So, if you are an avid fan of the franchis I expect you to keep your eye on the House of Jigsaw Message Borads for additional news, just as our scooper ‘SawFan’ did in bringing us this news.
