Chris Rock’s ‘Saw’ Gets New Title and Teaser Trailer
It was announced last year that Chris Rock was working on an update to the Saw franchise. Well, we have a title for the movie Spiral: From the Book of Saw.
We also have a teaser trailer that you can see by clicking above. The movie star Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson and based on the trailer, it looks like whoever is playing Jigsaw is targeting police officers.
Lioinsgate chairman Joe Drake said of the project:
When Chris Rock came to us and described in chilling detail his fantastic vision that reimagines and spins off the world of the notorious Jigsaw Killer, we were all-in. Saw is one of the highest-grossing horror franchises of all-time, and it’s one of Lionsgate’s most successful film series. This upcoming film will still be as mind-bending and intense as all the previous Saw films. Chris conceived this idea, and it will be completely reverential to the legacy of the material while reinvigorating the brand with his wit, creative vision and passion for this classic horror franchise.
And when news first broke about Chris Rock being interested in making a Saw movie, he said:
I’ve been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004. I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.
Spiral: From the Book of Saw was originally supposed to be released in October, but it's been moved up to a release date of May 15, 2020.
