    Chris Rock To Reboot ‘Saw’ Franchise With Lionsgate & Twisted Pictures

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/ne...ate-and-twisted-pictures/ar-AABs1US?ocid=iehp

    Chris Rock is teaming with Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures for a fresh imagination on the next Saw movie. The comedy multi-hyphenate has written a story which is being adapted by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, and Rock will also executive produce. Lionsgate has dated the film for an Oct. 23, 2020 release.

    “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,” said Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group chairman Joe Drake. “Saw is one of the highest grossing horror franchises of all-time and it’s one of Lionsgate’s most successful film series. This upcoming film will still be as mind bending and intense as all the previous Saw films. 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.”

    “I’ve been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004,” said Rock. “I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.”

    The next Saw movie will be produced by longtime series producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules, and be directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed three of the most successful films in the Saw franchise. The film will be executive produced by Rock, long-time Saw executive producer Daniel Heffner and the original creators of Saw, James Wan and Leigh Whannel.

    such a copycat business. I guarantee you they looked at Jordan Peele coming from comedy to make Get Out/Us and Danny McBride doing the same to make Halloween an event again and just said... who else is funny?!
