- TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
Lionsgate today announced that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, the next installment in the long-standing franchise, is set to commence production.
John Luessenhop, director of Takers, is in discussions to direct the film, which is to be produced by Carl Mazzocone. Mazzocone has managed to wrap up a deal for the franchise, which could see 6 sequels potentially being made.
"I'm excited to re-conceive this iconic horror classic in a contemporary setting for a new generation of horror fans to enjoy," said producer Mazzocone. "Our story picks up where the original left off. Both John Luessenhop and I intend to deliver a new chapter derived from Tobe Hooper's 1973 masterpiece with the goal of making it as horrifying as the original -- in 3D!"
