Yeah, the “Saw” movies are still being made, and Lionsgate will keep making them until you people stop going to see them. Seriously, folks, what is the lure of these films? They’re repetitious and stupid and they’re killing your brain cells. But whatever, apparently there are people out there who really loves this stuff, although from this story, it would appear Donnie Wahlberg is not one of them. Wahlberg played a cop in parts 2 and 3, and was supposed to die in part 3, but apparently he did not. Says Wahlberg: “Yeah, I got a scene in it… They kept me alive. I told them I wanted to die in part three and they took out my death. I just lie there and nothing happens.”
He goes on:
“No, they kept me alive. I don’t want to talk about it.”
Someone is NOT happy.
The news comes from over at Bloody-Disgusting, where a couple of readers actually chided Wahlberg for not wishing to come back for part four. Says one insightful fella: “Man… must suck to be forced to make money and be in a hit movie.”
My guess is that Wahlberg, whose career is taking off, doesn’t want to come back to a superfluous installment in a franchise where the emphasis is the gore and blood, and not the characters. EVERYONE was supposed to have died in part 3, but they didn’t, because there are still money to be made. Word is part 5 is already on the way as well, and 6 and 7 if people are still going to see them.
As always, the latest “Saw” will get scrambled together just in time to make its bloody debut on Halloween.
