Filming is currently underway on the next Saw film, with Darren Lynn Bousman of Saw II-IV back in the director’s chair. It was originally intended to be released in cinemas on October 23, 2020, but it now seems that the release date has been bumped up all the way to May 15, 2020! I thought this was odd, seeing as October is usually when Saw films come out, until I remembered that Halloween Kills will be hitting cinemas on October 16, 2020, so maybe the move is a good idea.
The script is by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg from a story by Chris Rock. Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, Chris Rock and Morgan David Jones star. There’s still no word on if we’ll see Tobin Bell‘s Jigsaw in this new installment.
