Chris Rock Opens Up About Big Project With Adam Sandler & Dave Chappelle: 'That's The Holy Grail'

Chris Rock has a huge project in the works.

The 56-year-old actor and comedian opened up to Apple Music about his new movie Spiral, and his upcoming projects.

Here’s what he had to say…

On getting cast in a Saw movie: “I was at a friend’s wedding in Brazil, and a very high powered wedding… my man Guy Oseary, so U2’s there, Madonna’s there, Zuckerbergs, whatever…and the head of Lionsgate was there. So I had some time with the head of Lionsgate. So I immediately go, okay, what does Lionsgate have that I can f–k with? I was like, oh, okay, Twilight. Nah. Game of Thrones? Nah. Saw? I can get in there. And I just posed a question to the head of Lionsgate. Do you ever think about putting somebody funny in one of those movies? You can do it without messing up the integrity of the movie. I didn’t want to make Scary Movie like Wayan Brothers, which I loved by the way.”

Dave Chappelle Announces 'Chappelle's Show' Is Returning to Netflix

Dave Chappelle‘s show is coming back to Netflix!

The 47-year-old comedian revealed that Chappelle’s Show would be returning to the streaming service on Friday (February 12) in a video posted to his Instagram.

The clip shows Dave at a stand up set in Austin, Texas as he discusses his recent COVID-19 diagnosis and shares his thoughts on the attack at the Capitol.

Dave made the announcement at the end of his performance and told the audience, “I asked you to stop watching the show and thank God almighty for you, you did. You made that show worthless because without your eyes, it’s nothing. And when you stopped watching it, they called me. And I got my name back and I got my license back and I got my show back and they paid me millions of dollars. Thank you very much.”

Netflix removed Dave‘s show in November after the comedian shared that he was unable to receive royalties from the show due to a contract he had signed with Viacom-CBS.

HBO Max Is Removing 'Chappelle’s Show' At Dave Chappelle's Request

HBO Max is honoring Dave Chappelle‘s request to take down his show, Chappelle’s Show, from the streaming service.

The reason Dave has been asking streaming services to take down his show is because when he signed his contract years ago with ViacomCBS, it did not include anything about him being paid when the comapny licenses it to streamers like HBO Max.

“We had a conversation with Dave. I won’t get into it, but it’s very clear that it’s a very unique and specific and emotional issue he’s got,” Casey Bloys, chief content officer of HBO and HBO Max, told Variety. “So at the end of the year, at the end of this year, December 31st, we’re going to honor his request and take the show down.”

Another streaming service also honored Dave’s request to have his show taken down.
