Jigsaw is the eighth installment in the Saw franchise, picking up over a decade after the death of the eponymous Jigsaw killer during the investigation of a new succession of murders that fit his modus operandi.
Saw 3D was intended to be the final film in the Saw franchise, with the film being split into two parts. However, Lionsgate Films only allowed the filmmakers to make one more film after Saw VI under-performed at the box office.
According to Saw 3D writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, because of the change, “the big reveal of Dr. Gordon was a bit underserved … Perhaps creating more questions than answers. There were several ideas we never quite figured out. But I don’t want to say what they were, because you never know what might happen in the future.”
In February 2016, it was reported that Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger wrote the script. It became known in July 2016 that brothers Michael and Peter Spierig directed the film. Mark Burg and Oren Koules, who produced all of the previous entries in the Saw series, will also reprise their roles as producers.
Composer Charlie Clouser described the film as a “reinvention” of the franchise, opining that “the Spierig brothers can deliver a fresh take on the material that will establish a new story line and new characters that can carry the saga into the future.”
The directors further detailed their approach as being “Saw for 2017”. As Michael Spierig explained, “It’s perhaps not quite as vicious and more fun. But it’s still full of gore, that’s for sure. It’s got a really great mystery, and there’s very interesting twists.”

In October 2016, production was confirmed to have commenced under the working title of Saw: Legacy. The film was shot in November 2016, before entering post-production by that January.
On March 2, 2017, Bloody Disgusting broke the first plot details and a full actor list, confirming that Tobin Bell will be returning in the role of John Kramer to some degree. In June 2017, the Motion Picture Association of America listed the film under the official title of Jigsaw, with the film rated R, for “sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture, and for language”.
In regard to the new title, writer Josh Stolberg clarified that “when a writer is writing a movie, they put something on the cover page to separate it from other films. So when we were writing this film, the title read Saw: Legacy but it was never official or ‘decided’.”
The film is scheduled to be released on October 27, 2017 in the United States.
