The Saw franchise cranked out seven movies between 2004 and 2010 because it’s not like they were that hard to do.  They were cheap and they were painfully formulaic—make traps to torture people, and throw in some silly mythology about a villain named Jigsaw.  The franchise mercifully ended four years ago, but like any horror bad guy, it’s not really dead.

With the original Saw set to return to theaters on October 31st for its 10th anniversary, producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules are now considering a return to the series.  Hit the jump for more.

I guess this was fairly inevitable.  Coming off the opening weekend box office success of the sequel Texas Chainsaw 3D, Millennium Films is now moving forward with a follow-up film.  The news was first reported by Bloody Disgusting, and Deadline now confirms that production on the untitled sequel is set to get underway later this year in Louisiana.  Producer Carl Mazzocone and executive producers Mark Burg, Avi Lerner, Tobe Hooper, Trevor Short, John Thompson, Danny Dimbort, Lati Grobman, and Christa Campbell will all return.

Despite scathing reviews, Texas Chainsaw 3D bested the likes of The Hobbit and Django Unchained to land the number one spot at the box office last weekend with $23 million.  BD’s report notes that the producers have acquired the rights to make up to 7 Texas Chainsaw sequels, so depending on how further installments fare, Leatherface may be sticking around for some time to come.
