We told you a long time ago that Chris Rock had pitched the original ‘Saw‘ producers on an idea for a reboot. They loved it, and now here we are.
This reboot, which the studio is billing as coming from “the book of saw” is titled Spiral. It stars Rock, Samuel L. Jackson and Max Minghella.
The official synopsis reads…
A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in ‘Spiral,’ the terrifying new chapter from the book of ‘Saw.’ Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran (Jackson), brash detective Ezekiel ‘Zeke’ Banks (Rock) and his rookie partner (Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.
This will be the ninth installment in the ‘Saw’ franchise. In total, the franchise has earned nearly $1 billion at the box office. This film will push them over the edge.
Check out the trailer below. It’s set to hit theaters May 15, 2020.
