Leatherface Gets a Couple of Actresses to ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’

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.
