After the huge success of Saw II, it was announced a few months back that Darren Lynn Bousman will return to direct Lionsgate's Saw III. It was also revealed that co-creator Leigh Whannell will be returning to script the film for the third time, and that stars Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith would be returning to the extremely popular franchise. As the film is aiming to hit theaters October 27th, 2006, we're still awaiting to hear what the film will be about... but until then we've got some exclusive casting news for you! 'Saw III' begins shooting May 8th in Toronto. Read on and enjoy. More news as it comes in...
B-D were informed yesterday from an anonymous scooper that TV veteran Angus Macfadyen (Redline) will star as a new character in the Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II) directed SAW III, which is currently being written by Leigh Whannell.
In addition, the insanely gorgeous Bahar Soomekh (Crash, Mission: Impossible III) will also be joining the cast alongside Dina Meyer, Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith.
They contacted Darren Bousman to confirm the scoop and to their surprise got a quick little quote from him and Whannell, who are hard at work on the script. "It's the most f-cked up of Jigsaw's games... and the most psychologically intense," they tell Bloody-Disgusting.
Watch for an official announcement in the coming weeks.
