In preparation for the debut of his second Masters of Horror entry, “The Dammed Thing” (which you can read the first review for right here), one of Bloody Disgusting’s gore-espondents sat down for a one-on-one with director Tobe Hooper. While I’m sure there was much talk of Hooper’s grue-filled episode (truly some of the coolest gore I’ve seen in a while), the real meat of the conversation came in the form of a certain massacre from Texas.
As has been reported before, the Master is executive producing a new series called “The Texas Chainsaw Chronicles,” which Hooper revealed he hopes will get started up after the third planned Texas Chainsaw film is out in theaters. I guess it’s not too surprising that a third film is already in talks, I just wonder when it’s going to take place. Will it be called Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Middle? Only time will tell…
Hooper also revealed that he’s working on a new book about the making of the original film along with co-writer Kim Henkel and that there’s a possibility even that will see an adaptation at some point as well. Look for the full interview on B-D very soon for more, and be sure to tune in to Showtime this Friday, October 27th, at 10:00 pm to see “The Damned Thing.” I think you guys will dig it!
Wish Tobe was your dad in our forums!
