You’ve waited patiently to enter the swamp for a third time, and now you’re gonna be rewarded big time! Read on for the release details as well as the first teaser trailer for the long awaited Hatchet III.
From the Press Release
MPI/Dark Sky Films announced today that June 14th will be the official release date for HATCHET III, the third entry in the popular franchise created by ArieScope Pictures’ Adam Green. The film marks the directorial debut of BJ McDonnell, who previously has handled A and B camera operations on such features as Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Adam Green’s first two Hatchet films.
HATCHET III is set to open in New York City’s Cinema Village and in Los Angeles at Laemmle Music Hall. Opening week will feature special appearances by the cast and crew, followed by Q&A’s at each location. Additional cities will be announced at a later date.
Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder return in HATCHET III and are joined by Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th 2009), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs) and others.
HATCHET III continues the tale of the now-iconic 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 was filmed 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.
