Director Darren Bousman reveals Saw 9 has wrapped production
Back in July, Darren Bousman posted to Instagram that production for Saw 9 movie was officially underway. Now, just a few weeks later, Bousman returned to social media, (this time Twitter), to confirm that the ninth Saw film has wrapped production. Posing for a selfie in front of a blood-splattered wall, Bousman posted simply “That’s a wrap!!!”
This particular installment of the long-running horror franchise comes from a story by Chris Rock, who will co-star with Samuel L. Jackson. Rock plays a police detective investigating a series of grizzly crimes with Jackson playing his father. They’re joined in the film by Max Minghella who plays William Schenk, Rock’s partner and Marisol Nichols as Capt. Angie Garza, Rock’s boss.
The film will offer fans worldwide a new amped up level of deviously treacherous traps, clever clues and the edge-of-the-seat suspense they expect from the one of the world’s most terrifying horror franchises.
The film will be produced by longtime Saw producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules – who are back once again to shepherd this re-imagining, which will be directed by Bousman, who helmed three of the most successful films in the Saw franchise. The screenplay is based on a story conceived by Rock and written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Jigsaw). The film will be executive produced by Chris Rock, long-time Saw executive producer Daniel Heffner and the original creators of Saw, James Wan and Leigh Whannell.
Saw 9 is due in theaters on May 15, 2020.
