The long running Saw horror franchise returns to cinemas in the US on October 27, 2017 and in preparation for its release, Lionsgate have released the first teaser poster for the new installment.
As previously reported here on GoreGeeks, the film has undergone a recent name change from its original Saw: Legacy title and is now set to be released as Jigsaw.
Unless you have lived under a rock for the past fifteen years, you should already be familiar with the series of films charting the sadistic revenge and punishments of the Jigsaw killer (Tobin Bell). How the new film will fit in with previous installments remains to be seen now that Bell’s character and his disciples have long since shuffled off this mortal coil but we do know that Jigsaw himself will be making some sort of appearance in the film.
As well as the returning Bell, the following cast members have been confirmed Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, and James Gomez.
The film will be written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (Piranha 3D and Sorority Row) and directors by the Spierig brothers, Peter and Michael, who brought us Daybreakers and Predestination.
