Texas Chainsaw 3D
Studio Brow wants to share the scariest way to kick off 2013; seeing the latest addition in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.
Released today, Texas Chainsaw 3D is 2013 American slasher film directed by John Luessenhop and written by Debra Sullivan and Adam Marcus. The seventh film in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, it will be the first presented in 3-D. The film stars Alexandra Daddario, Dan Yeager, Tremaine Neverson, Tania Raymonde, Thom Barry, Paul Rae and Bill Moseley. The story centers on Heather, who discovers that she was adopted after learning of an inheritance from a long lost grandmother.
Picking up where the 1974 original film ends, the citizens of Newt, Texas decide to burn down the farm house of the Sawyer family for their role in aiding Jeb Sawyer, also known as Leatherface, in countless murders. The entire family is presumed dead with the exception of an infant, Heather, who is placed with an adoptive family. Twenty years later, Heather learns of her adoption when a lawyer informs her that her long lost grandmother has left her an inheritance. Heather and her friends travel through Texas to pick up her inheritance which, unknown to her, includes her cousin, Leatherface.
In January 2007, Platinum Dunes executives Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form stated that the company would not be producing a third film for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise following the 2003 remake and TCM: The Beginning.
By October 2009, it was announced that Twisted Pictures and Lions Gate Entertainment were attempting to purchase the rights to the franchise, with Twisted Pictures producing and Lions Gate distributing. According to Variety writer Michael Fleming, the plan was to create a contemporary film in 3-D, with Stephen Susco writing the script. The contract, with rights-holders Bob Kuhn and Kim Henkel, would be for multiple films.
In May of that year, Lions Gate announced that it would be partnering with Nu Image to produce the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and that John Luessenhop would direct the film.
Mazzocone has acted as producer, with production which began June 2011. Debra Sullivan and Adam Marcus were brought in to write the script; Kirsten Elms and Luessenhop worked on rewrites and script polishing. Filming began during July 2011.
