LionsGate Taps Piranha 3D Scribes to Pen Script for Top Secret Saw Project!

Saw - Wan and Whannell

Rumors have long plagued the Internet that another Saw film was moments away from being put into production. But today we have some seemingly credible news on that front. LionsGate has reportedly called upon the writers of Sorority Row and Piranha 3D to pen the screenplay for a new film in the series. Nearly all details about the project are being kept under wraps at this juncture. But we have learned via Tracking Board that the project is currently being called Saw: Legacy and that it is being executive produced by series creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell.

Saw marks the horror film debut of powerhouse director James Wan (The Conjuring) and the first feature film collaboration between Wan and Saw co-writer Leigh Whannell.

Saw follows the plight of two men that wake up trapped in an unfamiliar room, restrained by chains – a dead body lies between them. The pair are given a series of specific instructions by which they must abide and tasks they must complete if they are to make it out with their lives intact. Their will to live and resolve will be tested and their survival will ultimately depend on how much they are willing to sacrifice.
