Original Texas Chainsaw cast members join the new 3D sequel

Jul. 20, 2011by: Mike Sampson

You may not want the 3D sequel to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE but you're getting it anyway and Lionsgate is hoping to throw some fans of the original a bone to soften the blow a little bit. Original TEXAS CHAINSAW stars Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns and John Dugan will all return for the 3D film.

TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D will mark the first time Hansen, the original Leatherface, has appeared in one of the film's sequels. He won't be returning as the iconic killer (they've instead cast newcomer Dan Yeager) but will play a role that's described as a cameo in nature. Dugan will, however, be returning to play the Grandfather.

The trio of classic actors join a cast that includes Alexandria Daddario, Tania Raymonde, R&B singer Trey Songz (wait, where are you going?!) and Shaun Sipos.

This 3D version takes place directly after the events of the 1974 original and follows a girl who travels to Texas to pick up her inheritance, unaware that it includes her cousin Leatherface. It all sounds a bit ridiculous, especially having a sequel to a grainy 1974 movie shot in 3D, but OK...

Far from purchasing a ticket, but as horror movies go Hooper's original is one of the most unsettling slasher flicks I've ever seen. And I'm not altogether against them paying homage to the film that started it all.

I'm actually very happy that they're going back to the original continuity. Hopefully Halloween follows suit and then everything will be right with the world.

And c'mon, "Trey Songz?" If it's all about naming yourself after what you do nowadays then I'm changing my name to Johnny Getslotsablowjobs.

Terrible

Horror movies in 3D are just AWFUL and completely stupid. I was already uninterested in this film, but as soon I read that Trey Songz was gonna be in it I was completely turned off.
