Filming has just started on the 8th installment in the Saw Franchise! Yup that's right, 8 Saw movies spanning almost 2 decades now. I must admit that the original for me will always be the most thrilling and horrific as the mere idea of being trapped in a room with no way out and not knowing why you're in there is enough to make anyone shudder in fear.

Thus far not much has been said of the movie in terms of synopsis but we do have some info regarding the new project. Saw; Legacy (2017) is directed by Michael and Peter Spierig, and written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger.

Saw 3D was intended to be the final film in the Saw franchise, with the film being split into two parts. However, Lionsgate Films only allowed the filmmakers to make one more film after Saw VI under-performed at the box office.

According to Saw 3D writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, because of the change, "the big reveal of Dr. Gordon was a bit underserved ... Perhaps creating more questions than answers. There were several ideas we never quite figured out. But I don’t want to say what they were, because you never know what might happen in the future."

In February 2016, it was reported that Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger will write the script. In July 2016, it became known that Michael and Peter Spierig will direct the film. Composer Charlie Clouser described Legacy as a "reinvention" of the Saw franchise, opining "the Spierig brothers can deliver a fresh take on the material that will establish a new story line and new characters that can carry the saga into the future."

So lock your doors and watch out for creepy dolls on tricycles because Saw: Legacy will be hitting theaters around October 2017!
