Chris Rock & Darren Lynn Bousman’s ‘Saw IX’ Shifts Up Five Months, Will Now Release May 15, 2020

Jul 24, 2019

Lionsgate’s next film in the ‘Saw’ franchise, has moved up five months to a release date of May 15, 2020, out of October 23, 2020. This shift is due to Universal’s upcoming ‘Halloween Kills’ getting dated for October 16, 2020.

Moreover, the cast and their roles are below:

  • Chris Rock (‘Top Five,’ ‘Nobody’s Fool’)
    • A police detective investigating a series of grisly crimes
  • Samuel L. Jackson (‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’)
    • Marcus, the father of Rock’s character
  • Max Minghella (‘The Social Network,’ ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’)
    • William Schenk, Rock’s partner
  • Marisol Nichols (’24,’ ‘Riverdale’)
    • Captain Angie Garza, Rock’s boss

Additionally, a three-time ‘Saw’ alum is returning to direct: Darren Lynn Bousman (‘Saw II,’ Saw III,’ ‘Saw IV’). The screenplay is from Pete Goldfinger & Josh Stolberg, the duo behind the previous film ‘Jigsaw.’ Also, actor-producer-writer-director Rock has provided the story for this new installment, a reimagining and a spin-off.

Further, filming is currently underway, and will wrap August 23rd in Toronto, Canada.

The untitled ‘Saw’ film will go up against Warner Bros. Animation’s ‘SCOOB!’ for now, as that is the only other film on that date.
