The Saw franchise has officially gone into reboot mode. The latest entry titled Spiral: From the Book of Saw has it’s official first trailer, and while it appears to be a slight departure from what we are used to, it is still undeniably Saw.
The latest film sees Chris Rock (executive producer) as a detective investigating Jigsaw type murders. The only thing that seems to be entirely different is that the murders taking place seem to be focused on police officers instead of the regular old, guilty dude persona. Now, it could totally be that these cops are all crooked and deserving of the Saw treatment, but that is yet to be seen.
Sam Jackson also joins the cast of Spiral as Rock’s father who judging from the trailer doesn’t last long… or becomes the new John Kramer. I mean how cool would it be to have Sam Jackson in that sort of role? Just having some wishful thinking.
Whatever the case, we are definitely into it. The new approach from star and producer, Rock and the roots of director Darren Lynn Bousman.
Spiral: From the Book of Saw, starring Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella, and Marisol Nichols, hits theaters May 15, 2020.
