Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson In New ‘Saw’ Movie ‘Spiral’
Another “Saw” movie is about to hit your TV screens and theaters and this new flick is called ‘Spiral.’ Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson are starring in the just-released teaser trailer for Spiral.
Spiral represents a new chapter “from the book of Saw” directed by Darren Lynn Bousman from a script by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger. This is technically the ninth entry in the Saw franchise. The script pulls from a story crafted by Rock, who also serves as executive producer. Last May, the movie was announced with a different release date (Oct. 23) and some words of high praise from Lionsgate’s Joe Drake, per Variety.
“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,” Drake said at the time. With so much entertainment Saw producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules, meanwhile, compared the potential behind Rock’s story idea to the genre-reinventing impact of Eddie Murphy’s 48 Hours.
