In 2004 Saw hit theaters, scaring us all into oblivion and introduced Jigsaw to our nightmares. Critics and fans collectively agreed the films ignited a new power in horror films, despite the terrible outcome of Saw: The Final Chapter. Lionsgate is now hoping to bring the pain agony (and maybe life lessons?) back to the big screen with an official re-launch of the franchise.
Variety reports the film, unofficially titled “Legacy,” will begin filming in Toronto towards the end of the summer. The film will be directed by Peter and Michael Spierig (Daybreakers, Predestination) and producers Mark Burg and Owen Kholes. Legacy will more than likely feature some characters from past films paired with new torture porn-traps.
The film is expected to hit theaters around Halloween SZN in 2017.
