Well color us intrigued. The news has come out that reportedly, none other than Samuel L. Jackson will be joining the new Saw film being put together by Chris Rock.
The addition of Jackson, best known in recent years for playing Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, should make for an interesting story to say the very least. At this time, it’s not known what this new Saw film will be about, as the series was supposedly brought to an end in 2010, with Jigsaw revisiting the story in 2017.
“Chris wants to put his own spin on the Saw franchise in the way Eddie Murphy put a completely fresh perspective on buddy-cop films with 48 Hours. This new Saw is going to be an event film in the making for horror fans. It will have all of the twists and turns and hardcore layers that our fans expect directed by one of the masters of the craft, Darren Lynn Bousman. We can’t wait to get started,” said producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules.
Currently, Chris Rock’s Saw film is scheduled to be released on October 23, 2020.
