“Saw,” “Uncut Gems” Set New Dates

Saw Uncut Gems Set New Dates

The new Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson-led “Saw” reboot has been moved up by five months, the studio taking it from a proposed October 23rd 2020 release to a May 15th 2020 opening.

This would suggest they have a lot of faith in the film in which Rock plays a police detective investigating a series of grizzly crimes with Jackson playing his father. Max Minghella and Marisol Nichols also star in the film which would mark the first entry in the horror series to not open in the month of October.

Meanwhile, and though not confirmed with distributor A24, a December 13th date is reportedly being targeted by “Good Time” helmers the Safdie brothers’ “Uncut Gems”. The news was announced in a tweet by Elara Pictures who produces the film.

Adam Sandler plays Howard Ratner, a jewellery store owner in New York City’s diamond district who must find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken from one of his top sellers and girlfriend. Lakeith Stanfield, Eric Bogosian, Judd Hirsch, Idina Menzel and NBA player Kevin Garnett also star.
