ShockTillYouDrop has word that the upcoming Saw 7 has received a name change. Get a load of this: Saw 3D: The Traps Come Alive. OK, sure. Since Hoffman can’t hold my interest much, maybe the traps can just cut out the middle man and handle shit on their own. The synopsis (via Wikipedia): Survivors from Jigsaw’s (Tobin Bell) previous traps gather to seek support of “self-help guru” and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery), but when Dagen’s own dark secrets are revealed, a new wave of terror is unleashed. Meanwhile, Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) and Jill Tuck (Betsy Russell, woo hoo) battle over Jigsaw’s legacy
As you may have already heard, Cary Elwes is returning as Dr. Lawrence Gordon. Though whether or not he’ll be in the modern story or in flashbacks remains to be seen. His fate from the first film has never been revealed. Kevin Greutert, who directed VI, got the gig over David Hackl, who directed the worst film in the series (V). Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who have scripted the last three films returned as well. Word is, that due to the diminished grosses of VI, this is likely to be the last in the series until the inevitable reboot in about five months.
