You can’t stop a dude with a chainsaw. Or at least, no one at the box office could, with Millennium Films’ “Texas Chainsaw 3D” beating out both Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” over the weekend.
The horror sequel beat out the Jamie Foxx-starring bloody Western by the skin of its teeth — but beat it out it did. That was way more than most people had expected, which automatically translates to … you guessed it! Get ready for “Texas Chainsaw 4”.
In fact, Millennium Films is so buoyed by “Texas Chainsaw 3D’s” success that they are already planning to shoot the fourth movie later this year in Louisiana. (Louisiana standing in for Texas, I assume, given the, you know, title and all.)
John Luessenhop directed the third movie, and it’s not clear if he’ll also return.
“Texas Chainsaw 3D” (minus the “Massacre”) was made on the cheap, with a cast of no-name actors (the biggest name was probably singer Trey Songz). Alexandra Daddario (below) played the film’s Final Girl.
