The next movie in the franchise

Postby Hello_Jigsaw » December 4th, 2018, 12:00 am

Hello guys,
long time no see.

Small update for you (for credentials please check my post history):
- they defnitely want to continue with the franchise and they want to do it as fast as possible
- there are numerous options considered right now, nothing is yet set in stone regarding both script and directing
- they would prefer to have as much Kramer in it as possible, while avoiding the script being remake or direct continuation of Saw or Jigsaw, figuring this out is the main issue that is halting things now (basically, all parties involved need to agree)
- in Q1 2019 (preferably even early Q1) you will get the information you are waiting for

Indeed. I also heard they would like to figure out how to bring back some characters introduced in Jigsaw, but nobody felt the Logan character in particular was a good addition for the franchise's longevity.

I fully expect an interquel of sorts.

Excited to hopefully hear some news soon! Also hoping they are able to come out with a film in 2019 but as long as they don't have to rush! I'm curious what characters they'd want to take from Jigsaw if it's not Logan.

I actually liked Logan so I'd like to see him continue. I'm guessing they want Eleanor in the next one if they're going to take someone from Jigsaw.

I don't think it'd be a huge priority to bring anyone back if it doesn't work story wise, but yes I did hear they loved Hannah.

Then again they loved working with Matt too, they just realized the Logan character didn't really work. I don't dosagree woth them.

Even if they think The Logan character didn't work..... They can still make it work.

This guy has a backstory worth exploring. In my pitch in another thread I think the plot of the next movie is who SHOULD take over Johns work.

Why not make it a a game where Jigsaw set up for anyone out there the wishes to take on the mantel of Jigsaw step up and face his test and if they win they receive his life's work.

Thus way we get a backstory on Logan on whether his is worthy or talented to take on his work...... As well is Eleanor.

This is what I find myself expecting as well....I hope they find a way to focus on John more than anything tbh. In the sequels I always find his scenes the most interesting (a difficult feat getting killed on 3 movies in), especially in Jigsaw.

Some updates:
- works on the movie are in full swing
- no date confirmed yet
- no director confirmed yet
- all parties involved want to use Tobin Bell to the full extent
- how this will be achieved was not picked yet although they are couple of ideas
- the movie is planned as yet another soft reboot like Jigsaw, with all it’s consequences (fresh title, good entry point for new viewers, no requirement of including previous characters/plotlines, although they would like to cater oldschool fans as much as possible and they would not like to completely discard „Jigsaw”, to which extent all this will happen is yet to be established and note that some minor easter eggs can be added into the working script even after production starts).
- as I mentioned before, in Q1 you will get the information you are waiting for

Thanks for the breakdown. Can't wait for the announcement!

Have you also heard they want to go darker again?

So being that this is supposed to be another soft reboot that doesn't require watching any of the previous installments to understand, I'm guessing that we will not be seeing the gas house or the bathroom? I know that may not be important to some of you but, those were my two personal favorite sets in the series and I was really hoping to see them again.

From the information given in these forums I don't imagine so but I wouldn't write it off. Technically, Saw 2 was a sequel in which you didn't need to see the first, but there were recurring characters and locations.
