We told you earlier this year that Chris Rock was working on developing a re-imagined take on the ‘Saw’ horror franchise.
It was reported that Rock would produce the film and receive a story credit since he came up with the original idea for the script.
Now we are learning more information about the project, and it’s getting crazier by the second. Chris Rock will reportedly star in the film alongside Samuel L. Jackson.
In the new film, Rock will play a police detective investigating a series of grizzly crimes, and Jackson will play Rock’s father. Minghella will play William Schenk, Rock’s partner on the police force, and Nichols will play Capt. Angie Garza, Rock’s boss.
Pretty damn crazy, right? How many people thought they’d be watching a Saw spinoff starring Chris Rock and Sam Jackson? The answer is no one.
According to the reports, this movie will hit theaters October 23, 2020, and we are weirdly excited for it. I’m not sure if they’re going for straight horror or a horror-comedy, but either way…sign me up.
