Plot details

The plot details have not yet been revealed, although in an interview with IGN, Patrick Melton revealed that Saw V will explain what happened to Corbett, the daughter of Lynn Denlon and Jeff Reinhart, following the conclusion of Saw III that left her in danger.[7] An interview with Tobin Bell revealed that the origins of Billy the puppet and his red tricycle would be further explained after having the story’s roots planted in Saw IV.[8] Also, in an interview on June 13, 2007, Tobin Bell teased that he would not be surprised if the character of Cecil made a reappearance, and that the pieces of flesh taken from the victims in the form of a jigsaw puzzle might be explained.[9] According to director David Hackl, one trap can potentially kill the actor meant to be placed in it, and so paramedics will be standing by while filming; Hackl joked that the trap would truly test the actor, just like Jigsaw tests his victims.[10]

In the Saw IV DVD commentary, Darren Lynn Bousman stated that the glass box trap,[11] which was originally planned to be used in Saw IV, will be further explored in Saw V.[12] The glass trap was only shown, not used, in the final cut of Saw IV.


Saw V is being written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan,[4] and the film went into production after Christmas 2007.[5] Filming began on March 17 in Toronto.[1] The fourth week of shooting has ended. Meanwhile the second trap scene is filmed, which according producer Mark Burg is the best trap they have filmed so far. Recently the 23rd day of filming has ended.(
