Back in August, it was reported that we are getting a brand new Saw movie! The latest Saw film is that of 2021’s Spiral: From the Book of Saw, and this new entry makes for the tenth film in the franchise. As of today, some really exciting news has come out related to the release of this movie.
As reported by Bloody Disgusting, Saw actor Tobin Bell (best known for his role as Jigsaw) will be returning to the franchise and will be in this new movie! Tobin will pick up his role as Jigsaw. Per a press release associated with this news: “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.”
Saw franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules provided the following comment: “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.”
We do not know any specific details regarding this movie’s narrative; given how things play out for Jigsaw, it is tough to tell if Saw 10 will involve the character via flashbacks, or if this movie will be set during a time when the character was alive.
Are you excited for a brand new Saw movie? On a slightly different horror movie related note, horror-rocker Rob Zombie has shared that he is “burned” out on the Halloween movies; he feels this based off his experience filming his two Halloween films. Hellraiser actor Doug Bradley recently spoke to his fandom of Cradle of Filth’s Dani Filth, as well as commented on Slipknot singer Corey Taylor’s horror fandom.
