Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella, and Marisol Nichols have officially joined the cast of Chris Rock’s Saw movie.
Lionsgate has now officially confirmed that filming on the latest Saw movie is underway, with Rock, Jackson, Minghella, and Nichols all playing key roles. Rock will star as a police detective investigating a string of grisly crimes, with Jackson co-starring as Rock’s onscreen father. Meanwhile, Minghella will play Rock’s partner, William Schenk, and Nichols will portray his and Rock’s boss, Angie Garza.
There is no word on the story of the new film or on the roles Rock and Jackson will play, but the ninth installment of the series might well revitalize the flagging franchise with this kind of star power.
Filming is slated to begin this week, with the film scheduled to hit theaters on October 23, 2020.
