‘Saw: Legacy’ Locations Revealed: a Familiar Character Returns?

Saw 6

Update: The Instagram account with the photos we mention has since been made private.

A Bloody reader has clued us in on some very cool bits of news regarding Saw: Legacy, the upcoming eighth film in the franchise that began in 2004. For starters, we were shown an Instagram from the 2nd AC on the film. In it are posted a few photos of the shoot, which include a couple shots in a barn. Our reader tells us that a large portion of the movie takes place in said barn.

Furthermore, we’re also told that Jon Cor’s character Ryan from Saw 3D (one of the two guys in the opening trap) will have scenes in the film with Tobin Bell! Bell played John Kramer, aka “Jigsaw”, throughout the series. His character died in the third film and his appearances in further entries were relegated to flashback sequences.

In commentary for Saw 3D, writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan revealed that the two men in pig masks at the end of the film were Ryan and Brad from the opening sequence, so this opens up the film and the plot to some speculation.

Lastly, our reader tells us that there will be a trap that includes, “…some spike strips and motorcycles.” No one at Lionsgate will confirm or deny this information.

Here’s information that has been confirmed: Saw: Legacy is written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfiner, the duo behind Piranha 3D, Piranha 3DD, and Sorority Row. It is being directed by the Spierig brothers, Peter and Michael, who are responsible for Undead, Daybreakers and Predestination, while Dan Heffner and Oren Koules are allegedly producing.

Additionally, composer Charlie Clouser is returning to the series. He tells THR, “I’m psyched to be scoring the re-invention of the Saw franchise. I think the Spierig brothers can deliver a fresh take on the material that will establish a new story line and new characters that can carry the saga into the future. After a six-year break from the world of Saw, this will be an opportunity for me to re-imagine how I approach the score, and I’ll be trying a more stark, bold, and stripped-down approach that will be more in line with the strong vision that the Spierig brothers are bringing to the table.

IMDb has Saw: Legacy listed for release on October 27th, 2017, although that is not a confirmed date.

    Huge if true. The two guys in the opening Saw 3D trap were supposedly the guys who helped Cary Elwes capture Hoffman at the end. Wonder what this means for the Dr. Gordon character, if anything.

      the storyline seems pretty obvious right from the title, what i hope is that they make it standalone and not a sequel, more like a sequel/reboot that doenst acknowledge anything from the previous movies but the Jigsaw character

  • Matt

    Oh goody, more flashbacks! Just what I was hoping for!

    • Nicolas Caiveau

      Flashbacks are a major part of the Saw franchise since Saw 1… What were you expecting ?

      • Matt

        I’m talking about (as mentioned in the article) flashbacks involving the long-dead Jigsaw. To me, all they do is make an already convoluted “plot” even more so. Just my opinion.

        • Nahuel Benvenuto

          it became a problem from IV onwards when the writers changed Jigsaw personality

    I knew Tobin would be back considering he’s been in Toronto all this time. But I’m not too sure about Ryan returning. I’d rather wait on official confirmation than what someone randomly told you guys. But IF he is indeed returning then that may also mean another minor character from Saw 3D will return as well.

    Christine Simpson who played Donna Evans- that journalist lady that was interviewing Bobby Dagen might return considering in actuality the actress that played her is a Canadian based news anchor and she’s VERY close longtime friends with producer Oren Koules and have stated numerous times on social media that if there was ever another film made she’d push hard for a death scene(Oren retweeted one of these tweets) and not too long ago she once again hinted at her possible return. Nothing concrete at all- but if they are bringing back a few Saw 3D characters then Donna Evans may indeed be one. We’ll see.

    fuck i’m excited for this

  • marklola12 .

    yawn the series is so boring as fuck, the first and 2nd yeh they were OK but the rest are horrid specially when they stopped playing by their own rules…they had no point to them at all

  • Nahuel Benvenuto

    the pics dont show, so this is a misleading article clickbait, also, Saw 3D single handlely destroyed teh franchise, yeah it was never good except the first, but it was leading somewhere, and 3D shit all over that, so is a mistake to take anything from that movie, also i hope this is good with those directors but the writers…

    • Nahuel Benvenuto

      also i hope they keep the direction style

    This makes zero sense. John was long long dead by the time of Saw 7. So he never had any interaction with those 2 guys. The only way that would work is if they were both de aged around a decade. But they’d have no link as they were disciples of Gordon not John himself directly.

    • Maxime C

      Flashbacks.
      Overuse of flashbacks. You can make up anything.

      • Justin McGill

        So.. jigsaw sees the Asian girlfriend banging the guy’s friend so he makes a note of it for later? Lol

    • Adam Nixon

      To be fair, in the original script for “Saw 3D”, it was going to be revealed during the climax that the public trap took place shortly after the events of the original movie, before “Saw II” and that John was secretly watching the trap with Gordon in the crowd. (It was part of Gordon’s training.) It got cut before filming, supposedly. It’s why the trap seems so out of place… it originally factored into the film more. It would work, as the films really only take place over the course of maybe a year or two (Hell, 3, 4 and 5 take place over like a week) so they wouldn’t really look all that much different.

      • Justin McGill

        Hmmmm that is interesting.

  • Maxime C

    “Jon Cor’s character Ryan from Saw 3D (one of the two guys in the opening trap) will have scenes in the film with Tobin Bell!”

    NO WAY?? FLASHBACKS IN SAW???
    Never saw THAT coming.
