The upcoming reboot of Saw has officially wrapped production. Although we have received casting updates as recently as earlier this month, filming has been steadily underway and director Darren Bousman took to social media last night to announce that it’s a wrap. Check out his post below, which teases a whole mess of green screen and blood.


For this Saw reboot, comedian Chris Rock's story ideas have been adapted to screenplay by Jigsaw writers Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, with Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II-IV) directing. Joining Rock as executive producer is Daniel Heffner, who has a long history of his own with the franchise, along with franchise creators James Wan and Leigh Whannel. Producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules are back in the fold for this new project as well.

Little is known about the plot of the film so far, but starring is comedian Chris Rock as a police detective investigating a series of grizzly crimes, Samuel L. Jackson as his father, Max Minghella (The Handmaid's Tale) as the detective's partner, Marisol Nichols (Riverdale) as a police captain, and Nazneen Contractor (Star Trek: Into Darkness).

Filming has just wrapped with the movie expected to hit theaters on May 15th, 2020. Be sure to follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news on this movie and the Saw franchise as a whole.
