Best known as playing the methodical killer, Jigsaw, Tobin Bell has been cast to play the Devil in Highway 61. Bell is also on board as Executive Producer on the flick. The project is being financed by Halcyon Pictures and Utah-based Prankster Film Co.

Highway 61 was written and will be directed by Luke and Jeremy Jackson.
