MOVIES: Chris Rock and Darren Bousman to Reimagine 'SAW'
Updated: Sep 9, 2021
On Thursday, Joe Drake, chairman of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, made the announcement that a new SAW movie would be released on Oct. 23, 2020. What is even more exciting is who will be penning the upcoming movie that will focus on original Jigsaw Killer, John Kramer.
“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," says Drake. "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.”
Rock will be accompanied by a killer team as the new SAW film develops, with longtime franchise producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules, along with director Darren Bousman, are onboard to bring us what should be a scary, gore filled time.
