'Saw' to be rereleased this Halloween
Would you cut off your own foot to see Saw back on the big screen? If so, you’re crazy—but, also, here are some glad tidings. Lionsgate announced today that, to mark the 10th anniversary of director James Wan’s franchise-inaugurating horror movie, the film will return to cinemas on Oct. 31, with select screenings the night before.
“The launch of Saw was a signature event in Lionsgate’s history, establishing our first franchise and paving the way for our growth into a global studio,” said Lionsgate President of Acquisitions & Co-Productions Jason Constantine. “We are excited for our fans to revisit the twisted magic that first blew their minds on Halloween 2004.”
The Saw franchise starred Tobin Bell as the fatal traps-setting villain Jigsaw and the series’ seven films cumulatively grossed $874 million. Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell would later reteam for 2007’s Dead Silence and the two Insidious movies.
