Leatherface next horror villain to get a 3D chapter

11.01.2010

SAW is mercifully drawing to a close at last (at least we think so), and so Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures are moving onto other things, and as they've recently acquired the rights to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, we will be seeing Leatherface return to the screen. In 3D, of course.

According to Bloody Disgusting, the script is actually called LEATHERFACE 3D, as presumably the TEXAS CHAINSAW title was too long for today's ADD audiences, and is not another reboot (thank god). Rather, the script from Deborah Sullivan and Adam Marcus flashforwards 35 years from the original, and is said to have something to do with a cult. Spooky!

I mean, this is combining two of my least favorite things, 3D and unnecessary horror sequels, so I can't pretend I'm all that enthused for it. Maybe they could craft some cool mythology around Leatherface and his wacky family, but I doubt it's going to be our next nine part SAW franchise. That honor CLEARLY is going to go to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, which will undoubtedly release a new $11,000 budgeted film every year until kingdom come now.

Extra Tidbit: When are studios going to stop making "3D" an official part of the title?

Enough with the stupid unecessary 3D!

I don't care about another Leatherface flick. I could take it or leave it. What I'm getting sick of is how every other damn horror movie is being released in shoddy "3D"! I hope this 3D fad dies sooner rather than later, but I know it won't because we as moviegoers still pay the extra cash for 3D. If I'm going to see a bad movie, at least let me see it in 2D!

I wonder how many arms Leatherface will have in this film? I'm hoping for six, like a cannibal Doctor Octopus with multiple chainsaws.

Thank you. Studios don't give a damn about people looking back onto their film 10 years from now and laughing at it.

Horror movies should NEVER be in 3-D. How can someone remotely relate to a feeling of fear when they've got a 30 foot chainsaw rushing at them?

I think cults were much more in vogue 35 years ago. These days they don't like to be called "cults", they like to be called "movements", and carry real political clout.

God help us when all the ballots are counted.

doesn't sound like too bad of an idea.

it's an original sounding sequel, so that's welcome.

So they're NOT rebooting TCM but having a second sequel to the newer series? I'm down with that. 35 years after the original??? Cult??? Hmm.
