Lionsgate announces that Saw XI is happening and will be released in 2024.
Official social media posts tease, “The game continues,” with a September 27, 2024 release date which is the same weekend Saw X was released this year.
The trades also offer, similar to X that Saw XI will take place between Saw I and Saw II and that Tobin Bell is expected back as the Jigsaw killer.
Saw X premiered on September 29 and finished its box office run at over $107 million, with a budget of only $13 million.
The Saw movie franchise is a series of horror films known for their intricate plots, suspenseful storytelling, and gruesome traps. Created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, the first film premiered in 2004 and became a massive success, leading to numerous sequels. The storyline revolves around the Jigsaw Killer, John Kramer, a morally-driven yet deranged individual who orchestrates elaborate traps and games to test his victims’ will to live and appreciate their lives.
Each film delves deeper into Jigsaw’s complex philosophy, exploring themes of morality, justice, and the value of life. The victims, often people who have taken their lives for granted or made morally questionable choices, find themselves trapped in life-or-death situations. They must face gruesome challenges and make difficult decisions to survive.
The franchise is renowned for its shocking plot twists, intricate connections between characters, and the revelation of Jigsaw’s intricate planning behind each trap. As the series progresses, it unveils a larger narrative arc with various interconnected characters and reveals the true motivations behind Jigsaw’s actions.
Saw X is described as the most disturbing installment of the SAW franchise yet explores the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game.
Set between the events of SAW I and II, a sick and desperate John travels to Mexico for a risky and experimental medical procedure in hopes of a miracle cure for his cancer – only to discover the entire operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable. Armed with a newfound purpose, the infamous serial killer returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through devious, deranged, and ingenious traps.
