Saw 5 & 6 Shot Back-To-Back?

Bloody Disgusting reports that Lionsgate is considering filming “Saw V” and “Saw VI” back-to-back, with production designer-turned-director David Hackl and crew signed on to both.

The reasons cited is that shooting back-to-back could help costs considerably, plus would avoid any potential upcoming strike.

The series is one of the most profitable franchises on the markets with last year’s third entry for example costing a mere $10 million, but taking in $164 million in ticket sales worldwide.

“Saw IV” scribes Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are working on the next chapter, with a first draft due by the end of the month.
