In an interesting twist, it has been revealed that Saw: Legacy, the upcoming new installment of the horror film series, has already wrapped filming and a third-generation member of a filmmaking family has joined the cast.
Joining the already announced Laura Vandervoort and Hannah Anderson is Mandela Van Peebles. If you don’t already see the resemblance, Mandela is the son of actor and filmmaker Mario Van Peebles and the grandson of Blaxploitation pioneering filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles.
Mandela recently appeared in History Channel’s reboot of Roots and his role in this film is under wraps as well as the plot details, which involves the obvious Jigsaw traps.
Saw: Legacy is due for release sometime around Halloween.
