Chris Rock To Reboot ‘Saw’ Franchise With Lionsgate & Twisted Pictures

Postby Blue Jackets » Fri May 17, 2019 6:58 am

Chris Rock is teaming with Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures for a fresh reimagining on the next Saw movie. The comedy multihyphenate has written a story that is being adapted by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, and Rock also will executive produce. Lionsgate has dated the film for release on October 23, 2020.

“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,” said Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group chairman Joe Drake. “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.”
Said Rock: “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.”

I was literally just coming here to post this. Seems unneeded but apparently people love this franchise.

Good luck beating BJ on an entertainment news story.

Never would have guessed a big time comedian to be a fan of these movies.

Peele = thoughtful horror movies that have a deeper message about society in America
Saw = wanna see this guy's head explode just for fun?

Lol, hard to argue that. Although, to be fair, Halloween was remade by Danny McBride, and that's basically just mindless violence.
