I don't know about you, but I can't stand Shawnee Smith in the Saw films. She drives me nuts, and I'm glad she died in the last one. I didn't think I'd have to look at her weird mug again.
Sadly, Bloody Disgusting is reporting otherwise. According to them, she will in fact have some sort of role in Saw IV.
This is what they had to say about it:
"I have a very interesting scenario here... one that feels like deja vu. If you remember last year (around the same time), we announced that Donnie Wahlberg would be returning in Saw III. We were blasted by pretty much every website as everyone involved in the film said "No, he's not!" Well, if you recall, he was in fact in the film... and now things have come full circle. Director Darren Lynn Bousman, along with Shawnee Smith herself, have denied rumors to us that she will return as Amanda Young in Lionsgate's Saw IV...although other extremely credible sources tell us otherwise. We're sticking to our guns here, you'll be seeing Amanda Young return in Jigsaw's next on October 26. The screenplay was written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (Feast)."
Color me disgusted. And I really wanted to like Saw IV.
