Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, writers of Saw IV-Saw VI are reportedly coming back for two more installments, which would lead the popular horror franchise all the way up to number eight. This news was disclosed in a recent Variety article announcing the writing duo's work on the new horror series Clive Barker's Hotel.

As usual, the continuing plot and storyline for all Saw sequels is being kept tightly under wraps. What is known is that Saw VII will be in 3D. Does that mean Saw VIII will be as well? I guess that depends on how popular the first 3D installment is.

Saw VII will haunt up theater screens on October 23rd of this year, with Saw VII hitting in 2010 and Saw VIII arriving in 2011. How long will this madness continue to go on? As long as these films keep making money. You can bet on that.
