Saw IIIV and also Abattoir director Darren Lynn Bousman’s Spiral: From the Book of Saw with Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson will arrive in theaters in May. And today we hear that the 10th Saw flick aka SAW X is already in “active development.”


The film is listed in the latest issue of Production Weekly and our buddies over at Bloody Disgusting confirmed it’s happening. That said, the title is really all we know at the moment but stay tuned and we’ll pass along further updates as we hear them.

SynopsisA criminal mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in Spiral, the terrifying new chapter from the book of Saw. Working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran (Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Rock) and his rookie partner (Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past.  Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.

Darren Lynn Bousman directs Spiral: From the Book of Saw from a screenplay written by Josh Stolberg and also Peter Goldfinger from a story by Chris Rock. Based on the original film by James Wan (The Conjuring) and Leigh Whannell (The Invisible Man).

Bousman says: “Chris came in with a thriller concept. He pitched this very elaborate, dense idea. We wanted it to feel much more like Seven. But it has so many ties to the mythos of Saw.”

Chris Rock also stars along with Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson. The new film is once again produced by Oren Koules and Mark Burg. Charlie Clouser will also provide the score. Spiral: From the Book of Saw hits May 14, 2021.

Meanwhile, the first flick followed two men (Leigh Whannell and Cary Elwes) who are chained to pipes in a filthy bathroom. They realize they’ve been trapped by a sadistic serial killer nicknamed “Jigsaw” and must complete his perverse puzzle or perish.

Then a whole bunch of sequels.

The last flick Jigsaw began after a series of murders bear all the markings of the Jigsaw killer. Law enforcement officials find themselves chasing the ghost of a man who has been dead for over a decade. And they become embroiled in a new game that’s only just begun. Is John Kramer back from the dead to remind the world to be grateful for the gift of life? Or is this a trap set by a killer with designs of his own?
