It has been announced (unofficially) that Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith and Donnie Wahlberg will be returning to the Lionsgate franchise in Saw III, only B-D have received word that one of them might not actually take the role!
They got an e-mail from the (un)official Wahlberg website who tells them that Donnie is making an official statement soon about his return as Eric Mathews in 'Saw III', so I guess we'll just play the waiting game for the news. Until then, JoBlo scored some delicious news regarding two new victims in the film, which is shooting for an October 27th release. Read on for the skinny...
"Two of our new victims are Lynn and Jeff, one of whom runs quickly afoul of Jigsaw. Lynn is a married mother in her late 30s who is kidnapped by Jigsaw. As you might expect, all is not sunny on Lynn's front who's got some dark secrets she's keeping from her family. Then there's Jeff, a dad who has never recovered fully after his son died. It was an accident but he's never been able to forgive himself. How he fits into the SAW legacy is being kept a mystery. Producers are looking for name actors for both of the roles, which should be cast in the next week or so."
