There have been numerous rumors over the last few years about an eighth installment in the Saw franchise. Last we heard, Lionsgate tapped Piranha 3D scribes Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to write the screenplay for the sequel, titled Saw: Legacy (gee, what could that title mean), and while the studio has yet to confirm anything, a new report makes the return of the franchise seem much more concrete — and imminent.

Rumors have persisted for years that Lionsgate wasn’t quite done with the Saw franchise — even though the last sequel was titled Saw 3D: The Final Chapter. But titles are meaningless as long as there’s money to be made, and with that pesky Paranormal Activity franchise out of the way (for now), it looks like Lionsgate is reviving the franchise that introduced us to James Wan, Jigsaw and a multi-film timeline so convoluted it would give Quentin Tarantino the spins.

We've heard some rumblings over the last few years of a possible 'Saw 8,' but after the definitive events at the end of 'Saw 7,' it seemed like the franchise definitely needed to take a breather. Now, for the first time, the producers have spoken out about their plans for a new sequel as we approach the original film's 10th anniversary. And it looks like 'Saw' director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell might just be ready to return to the series they started.
