Chris Rock is teaming with Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures for a fresh imagination on the next Sawmovie. 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.”

Twisted Pictures is an American production company and a division of Evolution Entertainment that specializes in horror movies. The company was founded by Evolution's Mark Burg, Oren Koules and Gregg Hoffman in 2004.

Saw is an American horror franchise distributed by Lionsgate , produced by Twisted Pictures and created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, that consists of eight feature films and additional media. In 2003, Wan and Whannell made a short film to help pitch as a potential feature film.

“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.”

“Chris wants to put his own spin on the Saw franchise in the way Eddie Murphy put a completely fresh perspective on buddy-cop films with 48 Hours. This new Saw is going to be an event film in the making for horror fans. It will have all of the twists and turns and hardcore layers that our fans expect directed by one of the masters of the craft, Darren Lynn Bousman. We can’t wait to get started,” said Burg and Koules.

Blumhouse and Miramax recently reaped great success when they re-awakened Halloween with hard comedic duo Danny McBride (as writer and EP) and filmmaker David Gordon Green to the tune of $254M-plus at the global box office, the best results ever in the 41-year old franchise. 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.

The event will feature a full orchestra performing Carter Burwell’s original film score timed to a screening of the first film in the franchise. Directed by Catherine Hardwick from a Melissa Rosenberg script, Twilight introduced transfer student Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), the mysteriously pallorous Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) who is revealed as a vampire, and Jacob (Taylor Lautner), who fills out the love triangle and turns out to be a werewolf.

Apparently, Lionsgate have decided to instead reboot the Saw franchise rather than rebooting Twilight, that the site previously reported. Nothing has been made official and everything at this time is simply in an infant stage. The site also insists that an eighth installment isn’t out of the cards either
