Leatherface 3DIt’s been a long while since last we heard anything about a third new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film, but it sounds as if the old saw could be getting geared up to start revving. Read on for details.

Though the remake was way better than expected and The Beginning left a lot to be desired, Bloody Disgusting is reporting that John Luessenhop is in talks to direct Lionsgate’s Leatherface 3D, the sequel to the Platinum Dunes produced Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake that was released via New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures.

Luessenhop directed the 2010 film Takers starring Chris Brown, Hayden Christensen and Matt Dillon. Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus and Stephen Susco have turned in drafts of the third Chainsaw flick that supposedly picks up immediately where Tobe Hooper’s original left off before flashing forward 35 years.

So where does that leave the now one-armed events of the remake? Your guess is as good as ours. Stay tuned.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  • Masked Slasher

    Really? I hated the Dunes remake … although, oddly enough, THE BEGINNING is the ONLY film of theirs that I’ve enjoyed. Much closer to the spirit of Tobe Hooper than the remake … at least they were cannibals in the prequel!

    But I thought this was going to be a loose sequel to Tobe Hooper’s film? Not anymore?

    • The Woman In Black

      I’m the opposite. The TCM remake is the ONLY PD film I can stand to watch. For me they hit their peak with the first thing they did and have just gone downhill ever since.

      • Rob

        I feel weird sometimes since I tend to enjoy (or tolerate) PD movies more than I probably should. The only ones that I didn’t like are Amityville Horror and The Unborn, though I mostly blame David Goyer for that shit.

        As for TCM, I definitely think The Beginning is better than the remake. And R. Lee Ermey plays such a great villain in both films. My main problem with The Beginning was the ending. Am I really supposed to believe that Jordana Brewster did not see giant Leatherface hiding in the backseat with the chainsaw? And how did he have the room to manuever that thing anyway, since that looked like a small ride. Eh, whatever.

      While I recanted my initial positive reaction to The Beginning, I agree that it was much better than the remake. The cannibalism combined with the black humor at least kept it closer to Hooper’s spirit.

    There’s a pre sales poster for this over at Nu Image website : http://www.nuimage.net/film_library_detail.asp?fid={36390A7E-6476-48FE-B6D7-05608DACD7F8}

    Nothing special but says that they’re planning a summer 2012 release.

    Nu Image don’t exactly scream good quality but at least they don’t give a shit about film ratings.
