Just as the teaser trailer for Saw VI hits the Web, Variety reports that Lionsgate has given the green light to the seventh film in the horror franchise. Mark Burg and Oren Koules, who have produced the entire series to date, return as producers, and Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, the writers behind Saw IV, V and VI, will script. Production is set to begin in January.
