‘Saw’ to Return to Theaters for 10th Anniversary

Saw 2014 rerelease

Lionsgate is set to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the theatrical release of SAW by bringing the film back to theaters nationwide for a one-week run starting on Friday, October 31st with select screenings beginning Thursday night, October 30th. Complain all you want about the series of films that it spawned but the original is actually a pretty interesting indie film. (I first discovered it the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.) The director of the original film, James Wan, has gone on to create the Insidious franchise, as well as directing The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. Read the full Saw 2014 rerelease press release after the jump.

Vin Diesel Fast and Furious 7

After the tragic death of star Paul Walker, the fate of Fast and Furious 7 was very much in doubt. Everyone knew Walker would want nothing more than the film to be finished, and the cast and crew pulled together to get the movie done. New cast members were added and a later release date was set. Finally, Fast and Furious 7 finished filming this week. It’s the same week, coincidentally, that the film was originally going to be released in theaters.

To mark the occasion, a note was put on the Fast and Furious Facebook page thanking fans for their kinds words and prayers. It’s a really nice tribute to Walker and the rest of the group. Read it below. Read More »

James Wan Malignant Man

That James Wan guy is everywhere. After influencing the horror genre multiple times in the past few years (with Saw and Insidious) he’s currently producing the third Insidious, directing Fast and Furious 7, and now selling the rights to a graphic novel he wrote with an eye to direct. The graphic novel is called Malignant Man, and follows a man who thinks he suffers from cancer, only to realize his aliment is actually a mysterious, powerful parasite that gives him powers.

Insidious 3 director

The two Insidious films, released in 2011 and 2013, were written by Leigh Whannell and director James Wan, the same pair that created the Saw series. We’ve known for a while that a third Insidious film would arrive in 2015, and that Whannell is writing that, too.

But with Wan moving on to direct Fast and Furious 7, where does that leave the third Insidious film? With Leigh Whannell directing, as it turns out. The writer/actor has just been announced as the director of Insidious: Chapter 3. Read More »
