The upcoming ninth film in the Saw franchise has been a head scratcher ever since it’s initial announcement. The film is a story from and stars Chris Rock and co-stars Samuel L. Jackson. To add to that strange twist we also know that Rock will add a lot of humor into the upcoming entry.
The ninth Saw film will be directed by Saw veteran Darren Lynn Bousman and is rumored to be titled Spiral: From the Book of Saw. That is according to Reddit fans at least.
So for now, we will take the title at face value. But, the title is an interesting one. Could this introduce the Saw franchise into the realm of the anthology? Perhaps these will be John Kramer disciple tales?
My personal hope for the franchise is that they go full on supernatural with the whole thing, and give us something in line with Jason and Freddy. We all know that John Kramer died. Instead of writers trying to fool us into thinking that he didn’t, why not bring him back as a supernatural force that can’t be killed?
In any case the new film will have Rock playing a detective investigating some Saw-riffic crimes and will have Jackson playing his dad.
There is something about this franchise that will always have me placing my butt firmly into a theater seat. As long as they keep the traps interesting and mix the franchise up, I’m good for 9 more.
