With Chris Rock on to board to produce a new Saw movie, we now have some new casting news on the film.
Via Bloody Disgusting, Samuel L. Jackson and Rock himself will be starring in the reboot. This story originally began as a rumour on Reddit, before BD reached out to a source to get confirmation on the Jackson and Rock news.
Darren Lynn Bousman – director of Saw II, Saw III and Saw IV – is on directing duties for this ninth Saw offering, and Jigsaw’s Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg put the script together based on a story from Chris Rock.
Plot specifics on this to-be-titled new Saw effort are being kept hush-hush right now, although the film is being pegged as looking to expand the world of Saw rather than serve as any sort of remake.
At present, this next Saw picture is booked in for an October 2020 release – which, if the rumours are true, will see it being going up against the next installment in the Halloween franchise.
