Texas Chainsaw Massacre Bound For Another Remake (3D, Naturally)

You wanted another Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That’s not a question, it’s a fact. It’s being remade, despite the fact that it was already remade in a 2003 release. I know I didn’t ask for it, so I’m blaming all of you. That ought to make for some fun comments.

This is serious business, though. Texas Chainsaw Massacre is getting a 3D remake, and Takers director John Luessenhop is in talks to helm it, The Hollywood Reporter reveals. Carl Mazzocone will produce, bringing along the wealth of experience earned from shepherding movies like Body Count, Knee High P.I. and Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd to the big screen. He’s got a deal for up to six movies about Leatherface and his down-home freak family of cannibals, with the hope being to launch a “new franchise.” The plan is to go into production in June.

Please, readers, give me some reason to elevate my hopes for this one. I’m struggling here.

    There is none, no hope, this is simply a very bad idea and one I never for one would ask to be made. The remake in 2003 actually had some merit as it brought in the female survivor to the real story to get her take on what happened many years ago in real life. Made for a more real gritty story. This is about marketing and money and using the current gimmick to do it. This has got horrible written all over it, not horror!

    The original is one of the most beautiful horror films ever made and represents a landmark in American cinema. The second one was a worthy satire/black comedy companion to the first. Everything else with this franchise was garbage. The 2003 remake was decent only because Michael Bay produces the cinematic equivalent of heroin (a cheap, easy and destructive substitute for something beautiful and organic).

    You can all blame me! haha… ;)

    I loved the last 2 Texas Chainsaw movies! They have to be one of the best horror remakes in recent history. Period.

    But with that being said – I would rather a 3rd movie in this latest series, than another remake. But we’ll see how it goes.

    Oh fucking hell, they remade it only a few years ago. Are they THAT desperate for a quick buck?
