Since the very first Saw movie added a new layer to the horror genre, fans have wondered what happened to Dr. Gordon at the end and where in the hell he went.
Five new chapters in the saga of the twisted mind of the Jigsaw Killer have unfolded since then, and it appears that finally, you may just find out the answers to the questions that you’ve been asking. And since Saw VII is reported to be the last in the series, it’s no surprise that producers look to be swinging for one more home run.
Bloody-Disgusting has all of the dirty details on the newest installment, including a brief synopsis and the entire cast listing. This is where it was confirmed that Cary Elwes would indeed be returning in his original role of Dr. Gordon, re-joining Tobin Bell, who was obviously jumping back into the role of Jigsaw. No information has been revealed as to exactly what capacity the Gordon character will be used in –many things have transpired since we last saw him — but it should be interesting to see where they go with it.
Another notable casting is the addition of Sean Patrick Flanery, star of The Boondock Saints, Suicide Kings, and Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. Again, no word on who Flanery might be playing, but judging from the synopsis below, it might just be the Bobby Dagen character.
Elwes’ co-star Monica Potter is not yet confirmed for the movie, but she has been part of the rumored returning cast, so that is still a wait-and-see. Perhaps they decided to just concentrate on Gordon.
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 Flanery. 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.
I personally lost interest in Saw after the second movie, but it is pretty cool that they got Elwes back. On the other hand, this is yet another movie jumping into the 3D tank. Do you have any interest in Saw VII, or is this all unworthy of a second thought?
