The trailer for the new Saw movie, Spiral: From The Book Of Saw is finally here and it gives a nod to the very first movie in the franchise.
Rock is an executive producer alongside Daniel Heffner and series creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell.
“I’ve been a fan of ‘Saw’ since the first film in 2004,” Rocks said. “I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.”
Joe Drake, Chairman of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, also expressed his excitement for the reboot.
“When Chris Rock came to us and described in chilling detail his fantastic vision that reimagines and spins-off the world of the notorious Jigsaw Killer, we were all-in. Chris conceived this idea and it will be completely reverential to the legacy of the material while reinvigorating the brand with his wit, creative vision and passion for this classic horror franchise.”
Director Darren Lynn Bousman, who was the directorial mastermind behind Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV, returns to the franchise with the new film.
The movie follows Detective Banks (Rock) as he is assigned to a horrible murder scene. The killer is targeting cops and leaves behind a red spiral, much like the one seen on the face of Saw‘s notable puppet Billy.
Samuel L. Jackson is also making an appearance in the film as Bank’s father.
The preview starts off normal enough with Banks and his partner on patrol. After chatting fro a bit, they get a call for all units available because an officer is down.
“A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in Spiral, the terrifying new chapter from the book of Saw,” Reads the synopsis. “Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran (Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks and his rookie partner (Max Minghella, as seen in The Handmaid’s Tale) 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.”
