Saw V and Saw VI Director Revealed Already!

Saw IV

Everyone knew it was inevitable. Saw IV is already done filming and due out at Halloween, and Saw V and Saw VI are definitely in the works. In fact, they already have a director attached! No, it won't be Darren Lynn Bousman again, who's finishing directing Saw IV after already bringing us Saw II and Saw III (sorry for the confusing use of roman numerals!). It's David Hackl, the production designer on Saw II, III, and IV and second unit director on Saw II and IV.

I think the saddest part of this series is that I just tired every last reader out with that intro. It almost makes you roll your eyes in regret just reading so many roman numerals and who this guy or that guy was. However, the interesting part is that this almost sounds like V for Vendetta, where the second unit director takes the reigns as the big director. Let's just hope they turn out as good as that movie.

The report comes confirmed from Bloody Disgusting, but of course nothing official will be announced until we watch Saw IV take in almost $100 million at the box office yet again (just like Saw III did). There's just something about that time of year, when the snow has just started to fall, cold is in the air, and Halloween is approaching, that makes you want to watch some brutal horror from the Saw franchise. And it looks like they'll be bringing it for many more years to come, at least until 2009 with Saw VI so far.

I'm very excited to see what Hackl brings to the table. I love the Saw franchise and I'm super excited about Saw IV and I'm not going to dismiss Saw V and VI until I see Saw IV.

This will be very interesting how this will fare in the B.O. no R rated horror yet this year reaching past $40 million, the only one reaching past 30 mil. was The Number 23. And with Sony dumping I Know Who Killed Me in 1200 theaters according to Boxofficemojo this will be very interesting.

Dear God, when will it end?

Um, some of us don't get confused by roman numerals and names so easily. But thanks for looking out for the rest!

I'm really not sure how I feel about a Saw V and VI. I think Saw IV will be okay, since it has mostly a prologue/epilouge feel. But the trilogy was perfect, why ruin a good thing? Of course, I'm still going to watch them. It's a sad addiction.

7 thing i've heard in a long time. The saw series, brought a whole new concept to horror fans, a very refreshing ideology lacking in many of the movies which have been filmed in recent years. Saw 1,II ans III were all amazing films, each progressively more intense. Saw IV looks to be extremely promising both in concept and in the level of violence and gore. With that being said, I can only imagine what kind of ideas are in the works for V and VI. To the makers of the Saw series...thank you for bringing us to the height of pleasure and pain!
