Film4 Frightfest 2011: Hatchet 3 Gets a Director and a Start Date!
With the Film4 Frightfest now in full swing in the UK, attendee Adam Green dropped some really interesting news regarding the future of the Hatchet franchise. Read on for the details.
Website Bleeding Cool caught up with Green, who offered this for anxious fans ...
"I hope everyone is excited because he was the right person for it. It’s not a name that everyone’s going to know, but when you hear who it is, I think you’ll understand why I made the choice I did. What I can say is that he was my first choice all along, even when it came time to do the second one. At a certain point they wanted to do the second one and they didn’t want to wait for me, and this was the guy that I thought should do it. He’s been part of the Hatchet family the whole way, and I will tease just by saying that he was there for everything.
"He’s the type of guy, he works on a lot of big movies, and if he’s wearing his Hatchet crew shirt, and if the guy on the crew for, like Transformers or whatever, tries to talk shit, he physically beats the shit out of him. I’m going to be with him the whole way; I’m going to be by the camera the whole time, protecting him, helping him, and I hope it’s the best Hatchet movie yet."
Shooting is set to begin February of 2012. Stay tuned for more as it comes.
