Saw Legacy and also know as Saw 8 has been announced by Lionsgate as a sequel instead of reboot
As we predicted that Saw Legacy will be released near the occasion of Halloween has come true. Now, Lionsgate has announced that Saw Legacy will be released on 27th October 2017.
There is a rumor in the Hollywood corridor that Saw Legacy or Saw 8 might be the last one of this franchise.
Saw 8 or Saw Legacy is the next installment of horror, thriller and dram movie of Saw franchise. Saw is one of the best horror movie series of Hollywood, in which main antagonist, Jigsaw remained alive, even after strong evidences, which proof that he do these murders.
This movie series, doesn’t contain any supernatural elements, like ghost, witches, werewolf and others. But the deadly and painful traps of this movie series is that element, which creates huge waves of horror and thriller.
This is the first time when Lionsgate has taken more than 6 years to release the next installment of this franchises. The last 7 movies of this franchise were released in consecutive 7 years. This is why, many people thought that Saw 3D would the last part of this franchise, but now Saw 8 is not a dream, it is happening.
Writers of Saw Legacy/ Saw 8
Finally, Lionsgate has ordered Saw 8, with the title Saw Legacy. For this, it has hired two new writers, Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, both of them have worked together in various movies, like Piranha 3D, Piranha 3DD and Sorority Row.
The involvement of Josh and Pete as writers, will give it a new taste, with some comic punches.
Executive Producers of Saw Legacy
The new executive producers of this franchise will be James Wan and Leigh Whannell. Both of them were part of this franchise for long time. James and Leigh Whannell are the real storytellers of this franchise from the first part. Whereas, Leigh is also known for original screenplay of this franchise from the first to 7th parts.
Both of them will definitely give their inputs for the Saw Legacy, because they knew Jigsaw more than anyone else.
Plot of Saw series
I love this movie franchise, because it is full of traps, blood and gruesome deaths. We see people yelling with pain of cutting their body parts or mutilating their body parts, so that they can survive little more in dangerous game of death.
This game is played on the rules of Jigsaw, who is the lead antagonist of this franchise, and after his death in mid of this series, he handed over his legacy to the character, Mark Hoffman. In this movie series, we saw that Jigsaw traced some people and captured them in his game of death. In this game, each and every person had only one, but painful and fatal, chance to survive. Most of them were not able to succeed in this game, even after very painful and gory attempts.
This movie series is full of thrill and horrific traps, which is the USP of this movie franchise. Each and every trap in this movie series is more dangerous and unique from the previous one.
You will be frightened, even only thinking about these traps. Some of my favorite traps are, those in which people were trapped in head blaster, a big and sharp edged pendulum coming near to the body after particular interval of time, a pit full of injections and a box with people, which is going to burn.
It will be interesting to see some new traps in Saw Legacy.
Star Cast of Saw Legacy
Till now, only one star has been selected by the casting team of Saw Legacy and he is none other than Tobin Bell, who is the Jigsaw of this movie series. Right now, the creators haven’t cleared that whether Jigsaw will appear in flashback or as alive on the screen.
Jigsaw might get the support of other antagonists of this movie franchise, like Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes), Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) and Daniel Mathew (Erik Knudsen). Dr. Gordon was the first alive victim of Jigsaw’s game of death in Saw 1, who cut his legs to survive. In the 7th part we come to know the biggest secret about Gordon that he has always helped Jigsaw, in doing surgeries of his victims, before sending them to traps.
Whereas, Daniel was the youngest victim of Jigsaw, whose father was trapped in the end of Saw II instead of him. So, he might enter in this game to take his revenge. And the last but not the least, Hoffman, to whom Jigsaw handed over his Legacy after his death, but his game was finished by Gordon in the end of Saw 3D. But we know that Hoffman is always succeeded in coming out alive from the traps of Jigsaw, many times. So, he might also return in Saw Legacy, to take his revenge from Gordon.
All the above fact is confirming that the Saw Legacy will be thriller and full of twits in comparison to the previous parts of this movie franchise.
For Saw Legacy, Lionsgate might get support of some big production companies of Hollywood. First of all, Saw VII was taken as the reboot of this franchise, but in 2015 it was taken as the new sequel of this franchise.
Release Date of Saw Legacy
There is many news, which have confirmed that Saw 8/ Saw Legacy is under development and till the end of 2016 this movie will go on floor to starts its filming.
If this movie will start filming till the end of 2016, then the chances for releasing of Saw Legacy in the year 2017 will also increase. Each and every part of this movie was released on an occasion of Halloween. So, this time also the creators and producers of this movie might be released this movie on the eve of Halloween of 2017, to give gift of Halloween to the fans of Saw franchise.
