Despite the poor box office of Saw VI — which Lionsgate vice-chairman Michael Burns told a New York City business conference got “buzz-sawed” by Paranormal Activity — the franchise’s studio is moving forward with Saw VII, the studio confirmed to EW. Director David Hackl (Saw V) is in pre-production on the project, which will be released Oct. 22, 2010, in 3-D. The studio still plans to use roman numerals in the title.
