Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures are bringing Saw back to the big screen with the 10th installment of the Saw horror franchise which is currently untitled is set to be released in 2023.
Tobin Bell has been officially announced to be returning to the franchise as horror icon John “Jigsaw” Kramer.
Bell will reprise his signature role as John Kramer as Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures prepare to go into production later this month on the next installment of the billion-dollar Saw franchise, with the new film slated for release on October 27, 2023.
Kevin Greutert will be directing the upcoming film. Greutert previously edited the Saw series for the first five films, as well as the eighth, Jigsaw. He also directed Saw VI and Saw 3D.
Saw franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules said:
“The return of Bell to the franchise furthers Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ goal of a film that captures everything Saw fans love about the franchise, while also keeping them guessing with all-new traps and a new mystery to solve.
What a thrill to be reuniting with Tobin. His performance as John Kramer is part of the magic that made this franchise a phenomenon and his character is an active part of this film.”
The character of Jigsaw was memorably killed off in Saw III way back in 2006, with the character popping up in flashbacks throughout subsequent installments of the franchise.
The franchise has grossed more than $1 billion from box office and retail sales.
