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 (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max 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.
Spiral (also known as Spiral: From The Book of Saw) is an upcoming American horror film. The film will serve as the ninth installment in the Saw franchise. It is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger, based on a story by Chris Rock.

On January 16, 2018, Lionsgate was reported to have begun discussing a ninth Saw film. Rock said the idea to do a Saw film came from a chance meeting with the head of Lionsgate at a friend’s wedding, and felt doing something in the horror genre would be a new avenue to take his career, though he planned to include some comedic elements in the film.
On April 3, 2018, Twisted Pictures was reported to be developing a sequel with Jigsaw writers Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger.
On May 16, 2019, it was confirmed that a ninth film in the Saw series was officially in production. Former series director Darren Lynn Bousman will return as director, along with series veterans Mark Burg and Oren Koules as producers. Comedian and actor Chris Rock will also be involved as an executive producer, in addition to writing the story treatment. Joining Rock as executive producers includes the original Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell, along with Daniel Heffner.
Rock approached Lionsgate Pictures with his ideas of extending the franchise, who became very interested in the concept. Burg and Koules said that Rock’s treatment of Saw was comparable to what Eddie Murphy had done for buddy cop films in 48 Hrs., giving the Saw series a “completely fresh perspective”.
On June 26, 2019, Stolberg confirmed that the ninth installment of Saw will exist in the same canon as the previous eight films, and will not be a reboot, nor will it be a direct sequel to Jigsaw.
On July 8, 2019, filming commenced in Toronto under the working title of The Organ Donor. On August 28, 2019, filming officially wrapped. Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Max Minghella, and Marisol Nichols are co-starring, playing the roles of a police detective, his father, his partner, and a police captain, respectively.
Spiral is scheduled to be released on May 15, 2020 in the United States by Lionsgate Films. It was originally scheduled to be released on October 23, 2020, but got moved up to avoid competition with Halloween Kills, the sequel to 2018’s Halloween.
