"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D" has been given the official go-ahead and is ready to begin filming next month for a possible 2013 release date. Wonder why it's not next year. Seems too long.
Anyway, the new film is confirmed to be a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1973 original, but obviously set in the "now" time. There's no word on who will star in the film. But I'm sure casting is happening right now, if filming is to begin next month.
The film will be made by Lionsgate and their partner Nu Images, with John Luessenhop, director of "Takers", directing the new film. Lionsgate have signed a "six sequel" deal with Nu Images. Everyone thought that after 2006's "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning", the franchise was dead................until now. The chainsaw will be sharpened again!!!!!!
