Saw 10th Anniversary Interview: James Wan & Leigh Whannell

Saw celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. Let that sink in for a minute. Now, reflect on how far its creators – James Wan and Leigh Whannell – have come. The former is currently in post-production on Furious 7 (the seventh installment in the Fast & Furious franchise) following directing gigs on horror hits like The Conjuring and Insidious. The latter also has Insidious to thank for his continued success; he penned the first two entries as well as the third which he directed.

These are exciting times for Wan and Whannell and, recently, they took time out of their busy schedule for a Saw reunion press conference at Lionsgate. In attendance: producer Mark Burg and Oren Koules, Shawnee Smith and Tobin Bell.

Exclusive: Producers Believe It’s Time for a New Saw Film, Offer Time Frame

Saw is making its return to theaters for one week only beginning October 31st. The occasion? Believe it or not, it’s the 10th anniversary. And today, following a press conference for the film, I sat down with producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules to reflect on the series. Inevitably, the discussion led to the “future of Saw.”

Since the seventh and “final” chapter, buzz of an eighth film has been omnipresent in the Internet press, however, the producers have never commented on it.
