Lionsgate have released the new teaser trailer for their ninth instalment in the Saw series, Spiral, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman.

The intense trailer sees the Saw franchise return with a reboot starring Hollywood’s finest – Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson. As well as playing the main character, Chris Rock is said to be the mastermind of the movie and the executive producer.

The synopsis for the movie reads: “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 centre of the killer’s morbid game.”

While we wait for the film to drop around mid-May this year, watch the trailer for Spiral below.
