Looks like John Kramer isn’t ready to say “game over” just yet.

One Take News can exclusively reveal that Tobin 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. 

Franchise stalwart Kevin Greutert, who directed the highly regarded Saw VI and Saw: The Final Chapter, and edited Saw I through V and Jigsaw, is directing the project.

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.

Commenting on the announcement, Saw franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules said, “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.”

Plot details are under wraps but Bell’s return to the franchise indicates they fans are going to be in for an exciting game and it sounds like Billy The Puppet will be there to help them every step of the way.

Bell is represented by Bobby Moses at Mavrick Agency, Kate Edwards at Grand View Management, and attorneys Tanya Mallean and Bill Skrzyniarz at Skrzyniarz & Mallean.

The tenth Saw film goes into production later this month and will release on October 27, 2023. Are you excited for Tobin Bell’s return? Let us know!
