This weekend we reported confirmation that Cary Elwes would return to the Saw franchise as Dr. Lawrence Gordon, which I think is pretty awesome news. The first Saw film is my favorite, but since then the franchise has slowly been loosing its flavor. But with Elwes coming back on board it should be interesting to see what his character is up to these days, and what part he will play in the story of Saw 3D.
Here is the confirmed cast so far: Tobin Bell, Cary Elwes, Costas Mandylor and Betsy Russell all return with the addition of Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints), Gina Holden (Aliens vs Predator: Requiem, Final Destination 3), Chad Donella (Lost, X-Files), Laurence Anthony, Dean Armstrong and Naomi Snieckus.
Now here is the official plot synopsis:
"This October, one of the biggest, most successful horror franchises in movie history arrives in theaters in vivid, chilling 3-D with the release of Lionsgate’s SAW VII 3-D.
As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw’s brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen, a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror...
The first theatrical feature to be shot exclusively on the cutting-edge SI-3D digital camera system, SAW VII 3-D brings the horrifying games of Jigsaw to life like never before. The film stars Tobin Bell, Cary Elwes, Costas Mandylor, Betsy Russell and Sean Patrick Flannery. SAW VII is directed by Kevin Greutert, produced by Oren Koules, Mark Burg and Gregg Hoffman. SAW VII 3D is a Lionsgate Release. Twisted Pictures Presents a Burg/Koules/Hoffman Production."
