New Jigsaw photo shows the Saw series up to its old tricks
Lionsgate (via Entertainment Weekly) has released a new photo from Jigsaw, the eighth film in the Saw horror franchise, featuring a new deadly trap. You can view the full Jigsaw photo in the gallery below, and try to guess the identity of the buckethead on the right, which is supposed to be a big reveal in the film!
Franchise star Tobin Bell is set to have an autograph signing at the San Diego Comic-Con, so a teaser trailer could arrive just in time for the convention. Like all of the films before it, Jigsaw will arrive just ahead of Halloween, debuting on October 27.
The upcoming sequel, which fittingly comes seven years after Saw: The Final Chapter, will star Laura Vandervoort (Bitten, Smallville) and Hannah Anderson (Shoot the Messenger, Lizzie Borden Took an Ax). Additional cast members have yet to be confirmed. The feature was shot mostly in secret last fall.
The eighth Saw movie is directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) from a script by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) alongside original creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell. Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules are producing, as they have on all the previous films in the franchise.
All seven previous Saw films have a combined worldwide box office gross upwards of $870 million on a combined budget of roughly $67 million.
