[Breaking News] ‘Saw: Legacy’ Plot Details Revealed; Tobin Bell Returning!

Due for release on October 27, 2017, the Spierig brothers directed eighth franchise sequel Saw: Legacy hopes to restore life back into the series, 7 long years after Saw VII. The film has been kept under raps ever since we first heard about it back in July of last year, but we can finally reveal some major story details.

BD were able to get their hands on the following information, which states that Tobin Bell (Jigsaw) himself will be returning as john kramer in some capacity:

We understand that neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes will be returning to play their respective characters, who both ended up becoming Jigsaw apprentices in earlier installments. As for the original Jigsaw himself, we’ve been told that Tobin Bell will be back in some capacity.

Plot details from their report, Saw: Legacy begins 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?

Saw: Legacy cast also includes 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 is written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfiner, the guys behind Piranha 3D, Piranha 3DD, and Sorority Row. The film will be directed by the Spierig brothers, Peter and Michael, who are responsible for Undead, Daybreakers and Predestination, while Dan Heffner and Oren Koules are evidently producing.
