No Tricks With Jigsaw's Fate In "Saw IV"...(Spoiler Alert)

by | July 2, 2007 | Comments

The filmmakers behind "Saw IV" promise not to cheat the fans who stuck by the first three. Though their main killer, Jigsaw, perished at the end of "Saw III," actor Tobin Bell remains in "Saw IV." And producer Mark Burg promises that they’re not pulling a soap opera twist.

"Here’s what I’m going to tell everybody without ruining the movie," said Burg. "Tobin is dead. We don’t jump the shark. It’s not his twin brother. All these crazy ideas that I’ve heard, he’s dead. All I will tell you is yes, he’s dead and yes, he’s in the movie."

Following the one a year release pattern of all the films, "Saw IV" will mark a Hollywood record. "There has never been a franchise that has done four in a row. Some of the Halloweens did three in a row but they never were able to do four in a row, and we wanted to do it."

But it’s not just for bragging rights. "There is a lot of internal satisfaction amongst [director] Darren [Lynn Bousman], [producer] Oren [Koules], myself. And the people at Lionsgate that we pulled off a fourth movie which is suspenseful as heck, scary as heck and such a good storyline that we had to come up with a way of how to continue the franchise when everyone knows Jigsaw is dead. We had such a good idea that came actually to Oren, my partner. We were playing around with different storylines and he called me up and he goes, ‘You’re not going to believe what I saw.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ We got so excited that it works."
