After the next Saw movie will be presented in 3D, a first for the series, it will have nowhere else to go, according to an announcement to be made at this week's Comic-Con.
Instead of continuing the numerical count in the title, the seventh movie will simply be called "Saw 3D." It will also mark the end of the 6-year-old horror movie phenomenon.
The announcement of the series ending is expected to be made today at Comic-Con, but USA Today got an early tip on the news. "It's time to stop. We have told the story we wanted to tell, and this is going to be a great farewell," said producer Oren Koules.
The first Saw movie was a very budget, independent film but it quickly grew into a huge commercial success, spawning a nauseating five sequels, each barely connected to the movie before.
There has never been a definitive, closing ending to any of the films, but this last one will be different. Koules said it will answer "all the questions, it comes full circle."
Perhaps this is just a reaction to the fact that 3D filming is much more difficult than 2D filming, and the movie creators might just have gotten too tired. In an earlier interview with the Press Association in the UK, director Costas Mandylor said shooting in 3D was "more tedious and longer."
