Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures have confirmed that the new installment of Saw will release just in time for Halloween 2023. It will be the tenth movie in the popular horror franchise.
Kevin Greutert will direct the new Saw. Greutert previously directed Saw VI (2009), Saw: The Final Chapter (2010), and served as editor on the first five installments and Jigsaw (2017).
The plot of the new film is being kept under wraps. However, Saw producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules said, “We have been listening to what the fans have been asking for and are hard at work planning a movie that Saw aficionados and horror fans alike will love. And part of that is giving the reins to Kevin Greutert, director of Saw VI, which is still one of the fans’ favorites in the entire series. More details will be revealed soon.”
Created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, the first film in the franchise released in 2004. It consists of nine feature films, with the first eight focusing on serial killer John “Jigsaw” Kramer. The franchise has earned more than $1 billion and has a dedicated fan-base.
