Jigsaw is back for more games.

Saw X–the latest installment of the classic horror franchise–will land in theaters a month earlier than expected, bumped up to Sept. 29 from Oct. 27, according to a report on Deadline. And check out the first-look image of Tobin Bell as John Kramer on this page.

The film–directed by Kevin Greutert from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger–will be told “from Kramer’s point of view, as opposed to following the trap victims,” Greutert said.

The Twisted Pictures entry–which brings back Bell’s Kramer–is “the untold chapter of Jigsaw’s final games,” according to the synopsis.

Set between Saw and Saw II, the new film follows Kramer as he travels to Mexico “for a risky and experimental procedure that may be a miracle cure for his cancer–only to discover the operation is a scam to defraud the most vulnerable.”

So, the infamous serial killer returns to his work–“turning the tables on the con artists–using devious, deranged and ingenious traps.”

Joining Bell in the cast are Shawnee Smith (as Amanda Young)–along with Renata Vaca, Paulette Hernandez, Joshua Okamoto, Octavio Hinojosa, Synnove Macody Lund, Steven Brand and Michael Beach.

The original 2004 Saw–directed by James Wan from a screenplay by Leigh Whannell–stars Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, Monica Potter and Bell. The film tries to solve the mystery of the Jigsaw Killer, who tests his victims’ will to survive by subjecting them to deadly games.
