Victor Crowley lives!
Hot on the heels of yesterday's fiery new poster reveal for BJ McDonnell's HATCHET III comes the news that Raven Banner has picked up the Canadian rights to the sequel which will be released theatrically through its Sinister Cinema series with partners Cineplex Entertainment, according to Screen Daily.
Written by Adam Green and starring Danielle Harris, Kane Hodder, Zach Galligan, Derek Mears, Sean Whalen and Caroline Williams, HATCHET III chops up like this:
HATCHET III continues the tale of the now-iconic villain Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder). As a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and carnage left behind from the first two films, Marybeth (Danielle Harris) hunts down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left the ghost of Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
An MPI/Dark Sky Films original production, MPI handles international sales and US distribution for HATCHET III, with the film scheduled for its US release on June 14. We'll keep you updated as to when Raven Banner will give the film its Canadian release.
