Lionsgate has released a new photo and some information on the upcoming Jigsaw film via Entertainment Weekly.
It was revealed some time ago that the legacy isn’t over as we thought. Lionsgate announced they would release an 8th Saw film focusing primarily on Jigsaw and what he left behind. Not many details had been released up until now! The directors of the new installment, Michael and Peter Spierig, spoke exclusively with EW to reveal some gory details on the new generation Saw:
“Bodies are turning up, and they’re linked to Jigsaw — or a Jigsaw copycat,” said Peter Spierig. “The DNA of Tobin Bell is all over this film.”
“We’ve got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don’t shy away from the gore,” says Michael Spierig. “It’s such a perfect Halloween scarefest. It’s perhaps not quite as vicious and more fun, which is something we tried to inject into it. But it’s still full of good fun gore, that’s for sure. And, on top of that, it’s got a really great mystery, and there’s very interesting twists. It’s ‘Saw’ for 2017.”
The next installment of the Saw series, Jigsaw, will be in theaters October 27th, 2017. Check out the new photo (and possible new trap!) below:
