It appears that the rumor of the Saw franchise taking a year off is not going to happen as the fifth film will be released in theatres on October 24, 2008. The Friday before Halloween tradition continues.
Director David Hackl spoke directly to Bloody-Disgusting.
“You have to realize that I am probably one of the biggest Saw fans out there. My team and I are the ones who have had the awesome task of designing and building the Saw traps since Saw II. So now I’m about to helm Saw V. I’m as psyched as anyone could be. You can let the fans know that they won’t be let down or I will have let myself down. Jigsaw might be dead but that would never stop him and it certainly won’t stop me. …My work has just begun.“
