‘Jigsaw’ Takes Halloween!


Lionsgate announced today Jigsaw as the official title of its upcoming SAW reboot, in theaters this Halloween after a seven year hiatus. Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) helmed the sequel, penned by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D) and creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell.

No official synopsis yet, but Jigsaw is said to continue and expand on its gruesome mythology with a twisted new tale that possibly sees the return of John Kramer and his traps. Games begin Oct. 27.

Named the Most Successful Horror Movie Series of all time by Guinness World Records in 2010, SAW spawned six sequels and earned more than $870 million worldwide. SAW launched director Wan’s career and gave horror one of its most memorable villains in Tobin Bell’s John “Jigsaw” Kramer.
