The eighth film in the Saw franchise had a title of Saw: Legacy floating around, but it’s now been announced that the new title is simply Jigsaw and their official Facebook page have just confirmed that the film will be heading to cinemas this October 27, 2017. I was tiring a bit of all this torture well before film number seven was announced as the last one [they lied], and can’t see how they can stretch things even further, but we shall see.
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?
Peter and Michael Spierig direct from a script by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfiner. The film stars Tobin Bell, Mandela Van Peebles, Shaquan Lewis, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Michael Boisvert, Callum Keith Rennie, and James Gomez.
