In the famous words of Jigsaw: “Want to play a game?”
Lionsgate is bringing the “Saw” horror movie franchise back to the big screen this year in a surprising new way thanks to “Spiral,” which the studio is billing as coming from “the book of ‘Saw.'” The new film is from executive producer Chris Rock, who also came up with the story for the project. Rock stars as a police detective investigating a string of sadistic murders targeting cops. The supporting cast includes Samuel L. Jackson and Max Minghella.
Lionsgate’s official synopsis for “Spiral” reads:
“A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in ‘Spiral,’ the terrifying new chapter from the book of ‘Saw.’ Working in the shadow of 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.”
Lionsgate will open “Spiral” in theaters nationwide May 15. Watch the first official trailer for the horror movie below.
