For years the Saw franchise churned out film after film up until the release of Saw 3D: The Final Chapter in 2010. It’s been 6 years since we’ve seen a new Saw, but that’s about to change. The franchise’s eighth film, Saw: Legacy, will soon begin production.
Earlier this year we learned that Peter Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg had come on board to pen the script for Legacy. New word comes today, via Movieweb, that the film will begin production this September in Toronto, with filming set to run from September 21 to October 21.
There have been no cast or a director announced yet. It is unknown at this time if Tobin Bell will be returning to reprise his role as Jigsaw or if someone else’s character will play the man behind the traps. We do know Dan Heffner and Oren Kroules will be producing once again. The two have produced every film of the franchise to date.
San Diego Comic Con is just weeks away. We expect more details of Saw VIII will be announced then. We’ll keep you posted.
