The Collector and The Collection were easily two of the coolest installments to be in a modern slasher franchise. While The Collection was easily a decent expansion on the original film and left itself open-ended enough for another sequel – it seemingly never came. This changes now, however, as The Collector 3 has finally been officially announced and confirmed by franchise actor Josh Stewart.
The actor took to Twitter in order to spread the news, which he captioned with a simple yet effective tagline: “Lock the door.” If that’s not exciting enough, he included a new poster for the film – one which stylizes the title as “The Coll3ctor”.
Check out the poster below:

The original two installments in the Collector franchise were both co-written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo behind Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, and Saw VII. Marcus Dunstan also took the role of director for each of the movies – and according to Bloody-Disgusting, he’s directing this third installment as well.
Although there isn’t any official plot given for The Collector 3, we can assume it’ll take place directly after the ending of The Collection. In that finale, Arkin makes his way to The Collector’s real house – and actually manages to kidnap him in a way that parallels his own abduction in the ending of the original film. After such an exciting climax, it’ll be a treat to see what they have in store for The Collector 3.
Hopefully the film gets more details soon – especially considering this year is the 10th anniversary of the original film. It’s a special time to be a fan of the franchise, and after years of hopeful waiting for another sequels; it’s finally happening!
