Chris Rock Rebooting "Saw" Franchise

Chris Rock is set to reboot the classic "Saw" movie franchise with “a really intense and twisted” new film.

Chris apparently approached the studio, Lionsgate, with a new concept which will be both a re-imagining and a spinning off for the series, based around Jigsaw, the killer who sets elaborate traps for his victims.

The "Saw" franchise began in 2004 and made over $1 billion at the global box office. The most recent movie, "Jigsaw," made over $102 million worldwide from a budget of $10 million despite mostly negative reviews. The studio also created two Saw attractions at Thorpe Park, a theme park in the UK as well as video games and a comic book.

Chris said, “I’ve been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004, and I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.”
