Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D

Whether you’re ready for another Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie or not, it’s coming, and it’s coming in 3D. The John Luessonhop directed The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is set for an October 2012 release, so it’s time to start hearing some casting news. According to Variety, this new film picks up right after the classic Tobe Hooper original, and it will star Percy Jackson’s Alexandra Daddario as the lead character Heather. Adding to this, Deadline Plainfield is reporting that the movie follows the Heather character to a small town in Texas, where she is attempting to collect on an inheritance that, unbeknownst to her, includes interactions with her less than well-adjusted cousin Leatherface. Along for the ride is her best friend Nikki, who is said to have a bit of an attitude problem, and will be played by Lost’s Tania Raymonde. So by my count, that’s two pretty young girls and one Leatherface getting together for the same movie. And if there’s one thing that I know about Leatherface, it’s that when he sees a pretty girl he tries to Texas chainsaw massacre them. It may not be high art, but I’ll take it. And I’ll take it in 3D to boot. I better get some limbs flying at my face.


What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly movie news column that wishes it could recreate the world using Legos. It would begin with the cast of Community and Rachel Weisz. It would then have them play one of the most epic games of paintball ever! Sal Mineo can come, too. Rachel Weisz may be doing more than taking a trip to Oz with James Franco and Sam Raimi. Word on the street is that she may also land a leading role alongside Jeremy Renner in The Bourne Legacy. In other news, I enjoy leading off my nightly columns with pictures of Rachel Weisz.


Since October’s over, it’s time to finally start talking about horror, and the future of horror is the past. It was clear that, when Platinum Dunes walked away from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre rights that Twisted Pictures was all over it like a baseball bat on the soft part of the cranium. It all seemed sort of stalled though, but now the director of Jason Goes to Hell (you know, the one where Jason goes to Hell) is set to co-write a script for a new Massacre that’s set more than three decades after the original film. Adam Marcus will be working alongside the relatively untested Debra Sullivan to get the story down. Hopefully they’ll be writing in a lot of chainsaws aimed at the screen because this one’s in 3D. So get ready for Texas Chainsaw with no Leatherface/60 year old Leatherface, and definitely no Grandpa. With Saw gone, they’ve got to hang their money hat on something. [Bloody D]
