Chris Rock’s Saw reboot, set to be released in May 2020, has finished filming according to its director, Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III and IV) in an Instagram post.
The reboot came as somewhat of a surprise as it was an idea pitched by Chris Rock for him to produce and star in. Along the way, superstar Samuel L. Jackson was also announced to star in the film along with Max Minghella (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Marisol Nichols (Riverdale).
Nothing is known about the plot of the film so far, other than it seems to be a reboot instead of another entry in the franchise which began in 2004 with Saw and ended with Jigsaw in 2017 after a seven-year hiatus following the previous film. This will be the ninth film in the franchise.
Jigsaw screenwriters Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg penned the screenplay from the idea pitched by Rock.
Bousman’s post comes along with a picture of him against a mysterious blood-splattered green screen, adding questions to what this film will be about. Check the post out below.
Bousman has shared other pictures from the set without giving away any plot details but giving us a taste of the amount of traps and gore this film will contain. Check out a collection of his posts below.
Impressive or not? Let’s hope this new Saw film holds up to the previous entries and gives us some exciting new traps when it premieres in the summer of 2020. Until then, iHorror will keep you updated!
