A few days ago we reported that, obviously, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D had received an ‘R’ rating from the MPAA. Now we have, as you can see from the teaser above, the official poster for the film. It looks like they’ve apparently decided to title it TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, dropping the “THE” and “MASSACRE” for some reason. The “THE” I can understand, but everyone loves a good “MASSACRE.”
Directed by John Luessenhop from a screenplay by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms, the new film – a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s first film, co-written by Hooper and Kim Henkel- stars Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Sue Rock, Scott Eastwood, Bill Moseley, Gunnar Hansen, Trey Songz, Keram Malicki-Sanchez, Shaun Sipos, Thom Barry, Paul Rae and Richard Riehle. Produced by Millenium Studios, presently, Lionsgate is aiming to release the film on January 4th, 2013
Twenty years ago, the town of Newt, Texas exacted vengeance on the Sawyer family for their role in assisting and concealing murders committed by the chainsaw-wielding maniac Jeb Sawyer, aka “Leatherface.” The entire family was presume killed when Burt Hartman led the townspeople to burn down their farm house, but the Sawyer infant survived and was secretly taken away by two of the vigilante townies, Gavin and Arlene, and raised their daughter Heather. It’s not until she’s in her twenties that Heather learns that she’s adopted.
A lawyer for her grandmother tracks her down with word she’s been left an inheritance. Angry at her parents for lying to her, she sets out for Texas on a road trip with her boyfriend Ryan, friends Nikki and Kenny, and Darryl, a hitchhiker they pick up on the way.”
