CFQ reports that actress Emmanuelle Vaugier has signed onto play a leading role in SAW 2.

Vaugier is perhaps best known for memorable guest arcs on such TV shows as Smallville and One Tree Hill. She's also recently completed production on the lead role in House of the Dead 2: Dead Aim, due out from Lions Gate next year, and she'll play the title role in the Sci Fi Channel movie Painkiller Jane.

SAW 2 will be directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who co-wrote the original Saw screenplay with James Wan and co-star Leigh Whannel. The film begins production in Toronto on May 5, and is scheduled for release by Lions Gate sometime this fall. Vaugier joins returning actors Shawnee Smith and Tobin Bell in the cast.
