While the studio declined to comment on Smith’s casting, Deadline reported that the tenth Saw film with also featured Synnøve Macody Lund, Steven Brand and Michael Beach.
Tobin Bell, will return for another go-round as Jigsaw Killer John Kramer, as previously announced.
Production on the movie is currently ongoing in Mexico City.
Details as to the plot of the new film are under wraps, Kevin Greuter — who helmed Saw VI and Saw: The Final Chapter, and edited Saw I through V and Jigsaw — has returned as director. While there’s no word yet on the characters to be played by Lund, Brand and Beach, Smith will presumably reprise her role as Amanda Young in some form — perhaps via flashbacks, as in a couple of past installments.
Introduced as one of Kramer’s victims in the original 2004 film, Young was later revealed to be an apprentice of the killer, known for forcing captives to play deadly games, before meeting her end in Saw III.
The tenth Saw is slated for release on October 27, 2023.
The franchise has grossed more than $1 billion from box office and retail sales.
