This Halloween is shaping up to be a fright fest for moviegoers. Lionsgate has announced plans to release “Saw 3″ on October 27, 2006. This news comes shortly after the announcement of a “Friday the 13th” prequel scheduled to hit theaters on October 13, 2006.
Director Darren Lynn Bousman and screenwriter Leigh Whannell are returning for the third “Saw,” but casting details were not released.
It seems “Saw” is becoming a Halloween tradition. The original “Saw” was released October 29, 2004, and “Saw 2″ opened at number one on October 28, 2005.
Lionsgate execs Jason Constantine and Peter Block say, “The ‘Saw’ franchise will ensure that gore becomes every bit as much a Halloween staple as ghosts, goblins, and candy corn.”
Do we smell a “Jigsaw Vs. Jason” movie in the future?
