Did Chris Rock Actually Write the Upcoming 'Saw' Reboot 'Spiral'?

By

There's a new entry in the Saw film franchise, and it's coming sooner than you may think. Except this particular movie isn't part of the typical Jigsaw storyline – it's a new addition to the mythos based on an original story by a somewhat unlikely auteur: Chris Rock. The ninth installment in the Saw franchise is being brought to life thanks to the efforts of the award-winning comedian, at least in part. But how involved was he? Did Chris Rock write the new Saw movie reboot Spiral?

Chris Rock is heavily involved with the new Saw project, which is something of a spinoff from the regular series. Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures have stated Spiral will feature Darren Lynn Bousman as he returns to direct and the original Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell serving as executive producers. Here's what we know about Chris' hand in the film as well as what's going to happen with the movie when it saunters out into theaters later this year.
