The eight installment which was supposed to be titled Saw Legacy has been re-titled Jigsaw. Take a look to the new title treatment and check out the first official plot synopsis:(Click on the picture to enlarge.)
“Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one man: John Kramer. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade. Or has an apprentice picked up the mantle of Jigsaw, perhaps even someone inside the investigation?”
The film is directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig, yep the Spierig brothers. And the cast includes Mandela Van Peebles, Hannah Anderson, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, and James Gomez. Actor Tobin Bell is supposed to reprise his role as John Kramer, the original Jigsaw, but I guess only for flashbacks scenes.
The release date of the movie Jigsaw is set to October 27, 2017.
Stay tuned for updates.
