Chris Rock To Reboot The Saw Films

When you think of Chris Rock, you don’t think of horror. You think of his turn in Dogma, or the zebra from Madagascar, or his time on SNL. But bodies ripping apart? Elaborate death traps? Cycling puppets? Not so much. But soon those will be exactly what you associate Rock with – the man is planning a fresh batch of Saw films, which he’ll cook up Lionsgate for an October 2020 release.

“I’ve been a fan of ‘Saw’ since the first film in 2004,” Rock said of the horror saga originated by James Wan. “I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.” Joe Drake, Lionsgate chairman, sounds particularly enthused about the direction Rock has in mind. “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,” he said. “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.”

Rock’s Saw film will be directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, the director of Saw 2, 3, and 4. Considering how well Danny McBride turned his hand to Halloween, it will be fascinating to see how Chris Rock fares in taking on one of horror’s more contemporary franchises.

This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incrim
