Spiral: From the Book of Saw is the upcoming ninth installment in the Saw horror franchise, starring Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, and 21 Savage. The film has been finished for a while now, but its release was delayed over a year due to the pandemic. It’s finally set to hit theaters on May 14th, 2021, and to drum up anticipation, Lionsgate has unveiled a new trailer.
Spiral is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who previously helmed Saw II, III, and IV. Rock himself conceived the screenplay, which casts him as a police detective hot on Jigsaw’s trail after being personally contacted by the psychotic serial killer. Jackson plays his father, who himself is a veteran of the police force, while Max Minghella rounds out the cast as Rock’s partner.
