Tobin Bell has closed a deal to reprise his role as Jigsaw Killer John Kramer in the next Saw film from Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures, which is heading into production later this month.
The return of Bell to the franchise furthers Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures’ goal of a film that captures everything Saw fans love about the films, while also keeping them guessing with all-new traps and a new mystery to solve. Franchise veteran Kevin Greuter — who directed Saw VI and Saw: The Final Chapter, and edited Saw I through V and Jigsaw — is directing the next installment in the billion-dollar horror franchise, slated for release on October 27, 2023.
“What a thrill to be reuniting with Tobin,” said franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules. “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.”
Bell is represented by Mavrick Agency, Grand View Management and Skrzyniarz & Mallean.
