New details on Saw: Legacy – Jigsaw to return?!

March 2nd, 2017 by Marc Comments

Despite seeing the death of Tobin Bell’s Jigsaw in the last movie, the Saw franchise is going to trudge back through all the blood and gore for another installment and the guys at Bloody Disgusting have some cool new details on it.

The new movie will arrive just in time for Halloween on October 27th and will be called Saw: Legacy and “will begin with bodies 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?”

They also report that the movie will feature Bell in some form in the movie as Jigsaw (although there’s no word on how yet) and will not feature either Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes who both played Saw apprentices in the blood soaked franchise.

They list the cast and credits as:

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.

Saw: Legacy was written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger, the duo behind Piranha 3D, Piranha 3DD, and Sorority Row. In the director’s chairs were the Spierig brothers, Peter and Michael, who brought us Undead, Daybreakers and Predestination.

So there you have it, are you looking forward to the return of Jigsaw? Or do you think this is one dead horse they should stop flogging? We want to know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
