Julie Benz is no stranger to horror, having spent years as a vampire on Joss Whedon TV shows Buffy and Angel. And she has some recent experience with hacked body parts and nasty stab wounds in the latest Rambo, so she's the perfect addition to the Saw franchise, which is gearing up for no less than its fifth entry, with the fittingly named David Hackl directing.
There’s no word on the plot yet, but we’re going to guess some deadly games are afoot and that Jigsaw will likely make some sort of flashback/videotape/from-beyond-the-grave appearance.
Variety has sharpened the details.
