CHRIS ROCK TO REBOOT SAW HORROR MOVIE
Chris Rock is teaming with Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures to do a reboot of the next Saw movie.
“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.”said Rock. The franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules added: “Chris wants to put his own spin on the Saw franchise in the way Eddie Murphy put a completely fresh perspective on buddy-cop films with 48 Hours. This new Saw is going to be an event film in the making for horror fans. It will have all of the twists and turns and hardcore layers that our fans expect directed by one of the masters of the craft, Darren Lynn Bousman. We can’t wait to get started.”
The story is being adapted by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, and Rock will also executive produce the film which already has a release date set for October 23, 2020.
