Final Bit of Hatchet 3 Casting News Starts Swinging!All right, Hatchet Army! More casting news has come our way for the third entry in the bloody saga of Victor Crowley and his unquenchable thirst for bloody and violent vengeance. Read on for the details.

From the Press Release
The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively announced additional talent joining the ensemble cast of BJ McDonnell’s HATCHET 3, the third entry in the popular slasher franchise produced by Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures. Principal photography is set to roll on the hotly-anticipated threequel outside of new Orleans tomorrow, May 30, 2012.

The trade reports Zach Galligan, best-known from his roles in genre classics Gremlins, Waxworks, and their respective sequels, will play Sheriff Fowler, the quiet Louisiana precinct of Jefferson Parish’s hard-nosed head of police. A New York native, Galligan first rose to prominence with Joe Dante’s 1984 blockbuster Gremlins and has since appeared in a number of horror, science fiction, and dramatic features. He currently teaches acting at Manhattan’s Stonestreet Studios.

“I’m so excited to have Zach as a part of the HATCHET 3 family,” says director McDonnell. “I’m a huge fan of Gremlins and his performance as Billy Peltzer. I have the utmost faith in him and know he’s going to bring everything he’s got to the role of Sheriff Fowler.”

Cody Blue Snider, star of A&E’s “Growing up Twisted”, plays Deputy Schneiderman, a gun-loving, heavy artillery-carrying area police officer joining in the assault on Victor Crowley. Rileah Vanderbilt, whom Hatchet fans know as the first two entries’ “Young Victor Crowley”, will play Mikaela Dougherty – a SWAT Team member sent in to Honey Island Swamp as part of the search and recovery team. An integral part of the ArieScope team, this marks her first major role in the series.

Taking on the film’s scoring duties is critically acclaimed composer Bear McCreary, known for his stunning work on Ron Moore’s “Battlestar Galactica” reboot and currently featured on AMC’s hit series “The Walking Dead.”

“It’s an honor to have Bear aboard HATCHET 3,” says writer/producer Adam Green. “Since working with him on my TV series ‘Holliston’, he’s instantly become a new and integral part of the ArieScope Pictures family. There’s literally nothing he can’t do – and best of all, he does it all with a level of class that elevates the quality of every project he touches.”

They join returning cast members Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder as well as Derek Mears (Friday the 13th 2009), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), Diane Goldner (Pulse 2 and 3, the Feast franchise), and The FP writer/director/star Jason Trost, who were announced Thursday, May 24, at Variety.

HATCHET 3, which opens on the ultraviolent final shot of Hatchet 2, continues the tale of the now iconic slasher villain Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.

The sequel, which films outside of New Orleans, Louisiana from late May to mid- June, 2012, is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films and Green’s Los Angeles-based ArieScope Pictures. The film marks cinematographer McDonnell’s directorial debut after having handled A and B camera operations on such features as Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake, Timur Bekmambetov’s upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Adam Green’s first two Hatchet films.
