Lionsgate is aiming to bring Jigsaw back from the grave for yet another deadly game, with the studio actively developing Saw VIII. The last entry in the franchise, Saw 3D, hit theaters in October 2010.
The studio is currently seeking a new direction for the horror soap opera, which essentially paved the way for micro-budget thrillers such as Paranormal Activity and The Purge. There was speculation that Lionsgate wanted to reboot the entire concept, although insiders claim the studio wants to simply continue Jigsaw's story with yet another true sequel.
Lionsgate is reportedly in no rush to bring Jigsaw back to theaters, taking its time in seeking a new direction for the profitable horror series. It isn't known if they plan to make this next project in 3D or not.
