Saw X producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules tease setting up Saw 11, which could even see the return of more past franchise characters.
MAJOR SPOILERS for Saw X. Consider yourself warned. John Kramer is back, and with the success of Saw X, we likely haven’t seen the last of him. The latest installment of the Saw franchise has received the best reviews of the series by far, so it’s probably only a matter of time before Lionsgate announces Saw 11.
Saw X sets up a possible sequel with a mid-credits scene that features the return of Mark Hoffman (Costa Mandylor), Jigsaw’s other apprentice who went on to become the antagonist of the later sequels. It’s possible that Saw 11 could pick up this thread and explore the relationships between John Kramer and his apprentices. While speaking with Dexerto, franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules teased that Saw 11 could see more actors from the franchise coming back.
“Saw X ends where I think the audience will want to know what happens, and there’s kind of a cliffhanger ending,” Burg said. “And there’s a great scene at the end of the credits, so we hope people will stick around. There’s a couple of easter eggs, a couple of surprises in this movie. And should this movie work, there are going to be a bunch of actors from the past who have already called wanting to know if they can come and be in the next movie since we’re going back in time.“
I do miss the old days when there was a new Saw movie every October, so you can count me down as someone eager for another sequel.
“John Kramer (Tobin Bell) is back. The most chilling installment of the SAW franchise yet explores the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s most personal game,” reads the official Saw X synopsis. “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, John returns to his work, turning the tables on the con artists in his signature visceral way through a series of ingenious and terrifying traps.“
