Samuel L. Jackson may be giving missions to Spider-Man in theaters today, but he\u2019s set to come back to the horror genre pretty soon. Just in, he\u2019s been cast in the SAW reboot starring Chris Rock.\r\n\r\nAccording to Entertainment Weekly, Jackson will be playing Rock\u2019s father in the movie; Rock, on the other hand, will be going outside of his usual comic role to play a police detective who is investigating a series of grisly murders.\r\n\r\nLionsgate chairman Joe Drake also had this to say about getting Jackson in the film:\r\n\r\n\u201cWe think Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock along with Max Minghella and Marisol Nichols make this film completely special in the SAW canon and we can\u2019t wait to unleash this unexpected and sinister new story on fans of this franchise\u2026 This is the next level of SAW on full tilt.\u201d\r\n\r\nWith father figures in movies usually not doing much, I have a feeling that having Jackson in the part will reveal that the role is much larger. Maybe he\u2019s been behind all these murders this whole time, and Jackson is going to be the rebooted version of Jigsaw. I have to say, he already has a very distinct voice, and he makes for a very creepy Mr. Glass. What are the odds that Jackson is the new villain of this series?\r\n\r\nCatch the SAW reboot when it comes out Oct. 23, 2020.
