Ok, so, the good news is that Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D doesn’t appear to be a remake/re-imagining/crap-o-la of any of the TCM flicks. Instead it appears to be a direct sequel to the original. This from the fiends over at Horror-Movies.ca:
Speaking briefly with Shock, Tania Raymonde divulged into some aspects of the new film and the character that she plays (Nikki).
“This movie takes off where the original started and stands on its own as a thriller and origin story. There’s something epic and scary about it as it delves into this disturbed mind that is not right.”
“There are a lot of unorthodox things about this movie that are original and new. I don’t think people are going to be disappointed.”
Tania also mentions that her character who is the best friend of “Heather” played by Alexandra Daddario has a lot of balls and basically kicks ass in the film and isn’t the usual slutty best friend.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is being helmed by John Luessenhop and also stars Paul Rae, Keram Malicki-Sánchez, Ritchie Montgomery, Bill Moseley, Scott Eastwood, Tobe Hooper, Gunnar Hansen and Sue Rock.
The film follows Heather, who along with her friends, travel to Texas in order to collect an inheritance. The spin? What would you do if you found out your cousin was Leatherface, and he was now YOURS?
Tobe hooper is going to be… acting? Interesting. Can’t wait to check it out!
