Things are going sideways in new Spiral: From the Book of Saw poster
With just a few weeks left until the arrival of the long-awaited Chris Rock-fronted installment of the horror franchise, Lionsgate has debuted a new poster for Spiral: From the Book of Saw teasing that things are going sideways as a new game begins. The new poster can be viewed in a gallery below!
In the ninth installment of the Saw series, Rock stars as Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks, a brash detective working in the shadow of his esteemed police veteran father (Jackson) who must take charge of a grisly investigation into a series of murders eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past alongside his rookie partner William Schenk (Max Minghella).
In addition to Rock, who penned the story treatment for the film, Jackson and Minghella, the cast for the film features Marisol Nichols (Riverdale, 24) as Captain Angie Garza, Banks’ boss, and Zoie Palmer (Dark Matter, Wynonna Earp) in the unknown role of Kara Boswick.
The film was originally set to hit theaters in May of 2020, but saw its release delayed a full year due to the ongoing global pandemic, but with theaters slowly reopening around the globe and studios and audiences looking to return to some normalcy this summer, Lionsgate has slated the film for a May 14 release.
The film is produced by longtime Saw producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules – who are back once again to shepherd this re-imagining, which hails from director Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed the first three sequels of the Saw franchise, also three of the most financially successful. The screenplay is based on a story conceived by Rock and written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, who made their franchise debut with the 2017 revival Jigsaw. The film is executive produced by Chris Rock, long-time Saw executive producer Daniel Heffner and the original creators of Saw, James Wan and Leigh Whannell.
