The new Saw movie will begin filming by the end of this month as revealed on social media by director Darren Lynn Bousman.
“Start shooting the new Saw film in just a few days,” Bousman wrote in a tweet. “Something I never thought I’d be typing again! Gotta be honest. No one is ready for the insanity about to bleed out on screen!”
The script for the new Saw was written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, based on a story by Chris Rock. According to Bloody Disgusting, Rock will also star in the film.
The film is being described as a “reimagining” of the original 2004 film, so fans of the film can expect some familiar aesthetics but with an entirely different narrative tone, at least if Rock truly wants to create something original.
