Jigsaw directors Peter and Michael Spierig will be at San Diego Comic-Con, Deadline has learned. The duo will be participating in a “Reinventing Horror” panel on at 5 PM Friday, July 21, in Room 23ABC.
In addition, Jigsaw star Tobin Bell will be signing autographs at 1 PM at Booth AA18.
The Saw franchise has reaped $873 million at the worldwide box office for Lionsgate. No word on whether Jigsaw will have sneak screenings in San Diego. At last year’s Con, Lionsgate showed off its thriller Nerve and completely surprised attendees when they revealed that its September horror pic The Woods was really a Blair Witch sequel.
Also sitting on the panel with the Spierig brothers will be writer-directors Justin Benson & Aaron Moorehead (The Endless, Spring), director-writer Roxanne Benjamin (XX, Southbound ), Matteo Pizzolo (CalExit writer and Black Mask Studios publisher), Bryan Edward Hill (Postal writer, Top Cow editor-screenwriter) and more.
Jigsaw opens on October 27, in time for Halloween.
