Another actor has been revealed to be a part of the deadly games of Saw: Legacy.
Deadline reports that the Saw: Legacy cast includes Mandela Van Peebles (2016’s Roots, We the Party), who is part of a cast that also includes the recently announced Laura Vandervoort (Bitten) and Hannah Anderson (Lizzie Borden Took an Ax). Mandela is the son of actor and filmmaker Mario Van Peebles.
Variety previously reported that Saw: Legacy was filmed in November and is currently in post-production. Scheduled for an October 27th, 2017 release, Saw: Legacy was directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers, Undead) from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger.
Saw: Legacy is based on the original Saw world created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, which kicked off with a 2003 short film followed by a feature version that made a big impact on the modern horror scene.

While most movies announce their cast members in the lead-up to production starting, Lionsgate's Saw: Legacy, the first Saw movie in seven years, has taken the opposite approach. With filming wrapped, the studio has announced that Laura Vandervoort and Hannah Anderson will star in the horror sequel, although nothing about their characters has been revealed at this time. While no story details or other cast members have been confirmed, there were a few interesting rumors swirling around the production, when filming was under way last fall.
Variety reports that the movie is currently in post-production, and that the previously-announced release date of October 27, just four days before Halloween, is still intact. Back in November, when production was under way, a rumor surfaced that both Tobin Bell would be returning as John Kramer, a.k.a. Jigsaw, along with Jon Cor's Ryan from the last installment, 2010's Saw 3D. There »

Production is pretty much done on Saw 8, the revival of the long-running horror series (with the movie shooting in Canada, and now in the edit suite). The new film is going by the name of Saw: Legacy, and it’s expected in cinemas this coming October.
It’s assumed that Tobin Bell is going to defy science to return once again in the role of Jigsaw. That hasn’t been confirmed as of yet though. Two names definitely appearing in Saw: Legacy though have been announced.
Laura Vandervoort and Hannah Anderson are the actors in question. You may have seen Vandervoort in her days as Supergirl on Smallville, and she’s been appearing in Bitten too. Anderson’s popped up in the TV series Shoot The Messenger.
Saw: Legacy, the next instalment of the Saw franchise, is coming and much sooner than expected. Variety has announced that Smallville and Bitten actress Laura Vandervoort and Shoot the Messenger’s Hannah Anderson are set to star in the horror sequel, and not only that, but the film was secretly shot last November for an October 27th, 2017 release date.
This is surprising because the last we heard of it was in the summer after Peter and Michael Spierig were tapped to direct the film with a start date announced for September – October 2016, but no casting announcements or further news was ever revealed. The fact that the film is already in post-production means we should probably expect more casting news, and even a first trailer, in the very near future.

Lionsgate is looking to play another gruesome game on the big screen with a new Saw movie, and now the first two cast members have joined the ranks of the eighth film in the franchise of bone-crunching snares, flesh-ripping traps, and malevolent mind games.
Scheduled for an October 27th, 2017 release, Saw: Legacy is directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers, Undead) from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger. The story is based on the original Saw world created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, which kicked off with a 2003 short film that was soon followed by a feature version that made a big impact on the modern horror scene.

The film — the first “Saw” title in seven years — is directed by the sibling team of Peter and Michael Spierig from a script by Pete Goldfinger, Josh Stolberg, James Wan, and Leigh Whannell. Producers are Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules, the trio that has produced all eight films.
Lionsgate has long specialized in genre fare such as the “Saw” franchise, produced by Twisted Pictures. The original “Saw” cost $1.2 million in 2004 and was Wan’s feature film directorial debut from a screenplay by Whannell with Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, Monica Potter, Michael Emerson, Ken Leung, Tobin Bell, and Whannell starring.
The seven “Saw” films grossed more than $870 million worldwide combined.
The franchise revolves around the fictional character John Kramer, also called the “Jigsaw Killer” or “Jigsaw, »
