The Saw franchise has been finding creative ways to bring back Tobin Bell’s iconic character John “Jigsaw” Kramer ever since killing him off in the third instalment way back in 2006. Darren Lynn Bousman’s 2021 film Spiral: From the Book of Saw was the franchise’s first entry not to feature Jigsaw, but we’ll be seeing him again soon—because Bell is officially reprising the role for Saw 10!
“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,” notes the press release, “while also keeping them guessing with all-new traps and a new mystery to solve.”
The latest Saw film will be directed by Kevin Greutert. Greutert also directed the excellent Saw VI (and the slightly less excellent but supremely fun Saw: The Final Chapter), in addition to editing multiple entries in the series.
The tenth instalment in the Saw franchise is slated to release on October 27th, 2023. Production will be getting underway very soon and we’ll bring you all the latest news about the film as we hear it.
