It’s been five years since The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, so you were beginning to feel safe… but you’re never safe. Not when there’s more money to mine from a franchise.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Lionsgate is moving forward on Leatherface 3D, the sequel to the Platinum Dunes Texas Chainsaw Massacre. They’re looking for a director for the film and are in talks with none other than John Luessenhop, director of last year’s Takers. (Yes, I had to look him up too.)
The film is supposed to pick up three decades after Leatherface goes dancing in the streets in Tobe Hooper’s film.
It’s all been downhill since Dennis Hopper battled it out chainsaw a chainsaw in the second one, folks, and it would be a miracle to see something worthy come out of this. Besides, hasn’t the 3D bubble burst already?
