Update beyond the break. We had been hearing heavy rumors that Cary Elwes would be returning as Dr. Gordon in both the Saw videogame and in Lionsgate’s forthcoming Saw VI. While we learned that the studio changes the film depending on what type of news leaks, we decided to keep a safe distance from that rumor — until now. This evening Xbox Live featured Saw V on their platform for download, only the plot description wasn’t for the fifth film by David Hackl. Read on for the interesting synopsis.Update: We’re being told this is for the game (if not a complete farce that both Xbox and iTunes used) and not the movie — although we’re also hearing Elwes could make an appearance in the sixth Saw film (although that’s supposed to be top secret and it’s being denied left and right), which goes along with reports that the game will tie into the film’s release in October.
B-D reader ‘JayKah’ writes into Bloody-Disgusting. “Today on Xbox Live Saw V was featured, but for the description of the movie it said:
‘One man. One plan. One foot. Yes, the doctor is in! With a strange twist of fate and a revengeful plot, get ready for the most anticipated event of Saw. Face your fears at his operating table. Know that no one is safe from his sickness. Chills and screams are his true pleasure. on…and Blood? You’ll be drenched in it.’ ”
Who else could they be talking about? It’s obviously the return of Dr. Lawrence Gordon. The question remains, did Lionsgate accidently send out the synopsis for the game, or for Saw VI? We’ll dig and try and find out more, but until then, check out the video below as evidence.
