The Saw gang is getting together for another dose of horror.
Tobin Bell–famous for his role as John Kramer (Jigsaw) in the classic Saw franchise–and director Darren Lynn Bousman–who helmed four of those films–have just wrapped filming the new genre movie Cello, according to a report on Deadline.
Cello–described as an English- and Arabic-language horror film shot in Saudi Arabia–also stars Oscar, Emmy and Tony Award winner Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune), Samer Ismail and Elham Ali.
The new movie–written by Turki Al Alshikh (based on his novel)–follows an aspiring cellist who learns that “the cost of his brand-new cello is a lot more insidious than he first thought,” according to the official synopsis.
Bousman said none of his adventures in filmmaking can compare to his experiences with Cello. “I was able to traverse the globe and work with an international cast and crew,” he said. “I am excited for the world to see this terrifying tale, and am humbled to have had a small part in its creation.”
The Saw franchise–created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell–consists of nine feature films that have grossed more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office to date. The latest–Spiral: From the Book of Saw–hit theaters this past May.
Bousman directed Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV and Spiral, and Bell starred as Jigsaw in the first eight films in the series, as well as voicing the character in two video game adaptations.
