Let the 3D Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ing Commence

Lionsgate has officially announced that production on “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D” is set to commence next month in June. (The film was originally thought to be called “Leatherface 3D”, but I guess the prospect of selling a brand name like a “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” movie as opposed to the less well-known “Leatherface” made the studio’s decision pretty easy.)

John Luessenhop, who recently directed the heist flick “Takers”, will step behind the camera as previously reported. The plot, according to producer Carl Mazzocone:

Our story picks up where the original left off. Both John Luessenhop and I intend to deliver a new chapter derived from Tobe Hooper’s 1973 masterpiece with the goal of making it as horrifying as the original — in 3D!

So basically, they’re going to ignore the remakes and reboots, and go back to the Hooper original. Yeah, definitely not too confusing at all.

Then again, who even remembers what happened at the end of the remake? All I remember from that one is a very hot and tight jeans’ed Jessica Biel running from Leatherface.
