We all knew the SAW franchise wasn’t going to die but what we didn’t know is that heavy hitters like Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson would bring new life to the franchise. When that news broke I was intrigued by the fresh approach and now that we have the trailer it confirms the world is ready for another chapter of the SAW franchise. It looks great and I am confident Rock and Jackson will deliver something special with Darren Lynn Bousman behind the camera for SPIRAL.
A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in SPIRAL, the terrifying new chapter from the book of SAW. Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.
SPIRAL stars Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is produced by the original SAW team of Mark Burg and Oren Koules. The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger.
Spiral will be in Theaters May 15, 2020.
