Hatchet 3 Ready to Slice its Way into Your Heart

You knew it was coming. More bloodshed was inevitable. It’s with great pleasure that we announce that the body count is about to continue. Steady yourself … Hatchet 3 is a GO!

From the Press Release
Hot on the heels of the successful VOD and DVD release of Hatchet 2, Dark Sky Films today announced it has given the green light to the production of HATCHET 3. The film, centered once again on the genre’s most fearsome new villain, Victor Crowley, will be produced by ArieScope Pictures and Dark Sky Films, a subsidiary of leading independent producer and distributor MPI Media Group.

Writer-director Adam Green said: “We already had a possible storyline for HATCHET 3 worked out before we began shooting Hatchet 2 so my cast, crew and I are beyond excited to see that the story and legacy of Victor Crowley will indeed continue. For a little indie movie that I dreamt up when I was just eight years old, it has been absolutely surreal to watch it turn into a modern-day slasher franchise.”

Greg Newman, Executive Vice President of Dark Sky Films, said: “It has been our intention from the beginning to make the HATCHET story an episodic one. Adam Green created a horror icon in Victor Crowley, and we’re pleased that Crowley will live on in future installments of the franchise.”

HATCHET 3 will continue the saga of Crowley, the “Bayou Butcher,” who first made his gruesome mark in 2007’s groundbreaking Hatchet. Adam Green’s HATCHET 2 sequel became the first unrated independent horror film to be exhibited by a major chain (AMC Theatres) in more than 25 years when it opened last fall. Strong early sales from Hatchet 2’s new DVD release have further solidified the franchise’s enduring appeal.

With cast and other production details to be announced shortly, HATCHET 3 will continue where the story left off in Hatchet 2, as a young woman sought revenge on the malevolent monster that killed her family while they were fishing in Louisiana swamp country.

HATCHET 3 will be produced by ArieScope’s Cory Neal, producer of the previous two hits. In addition to the Hatchet films, ArieScope’s other productions include Frozen, Spiral and Grace.

Cory Neal said, “We are thrilled to again work with Dark Sky, the company that has been so instrumental in the success of this growing franchise.”

    More Crowley? FUCK YEAH!

  • Genrewriter

    Great way to start a Monday. Can’t wait to see what they do with it.

  • binturong

    i dont get it. 1 was a fun romp. not a very good movie by any means, but fun none the less. but part 2 was a disaster. why make a part 3 other than to make up for the suck fest of part 2?

  • Vanvance1

    Very good news. The one improvement I’d like to see for number 3 would be better practical f/x. I very much appreciate that they tried to bring the gore in number 2 but the actual quality wasn’t what I was hoping for.

    P.S. Send out a job offer to the f/x guys who contributed to ‘Inside’, it may have to be written in French but the end results would likely be worth it.

      Yes, that was a major problem I had with Hatchet 2. Everything looked far too rubbery. Having said that though, I’d definitely like to see a third film.
