TEXAS CHAINSAW 4 Officially Moving Forward; Production To Begin Later This Year
It was previously reported that the sequel to Texas Chainsaw 3D is moving forward, but now it's been confirmed that another Leatherface adventure is indeed in the works, with production set to begin later this year.
The other day, it was reported that Lionsgate will be moving ahead with a sequel to its surprise box office hit Texas Chainsaw 3D, which opened this past weekend. While that isn't surprising, considering that the studio bought the rights to make seven Texas Chainsaw movies, Leatherface's big screen future would've been uncertain if his latest outing wasn't very successful. Now, after its $21.7M opening weekend, Deadline confirms that Millenium Films is giving the go ahead to the next film, tentatively titled Texas Chainsaw 4. Production will begin later this year in Louisiana, and will be spearheaded by producer Carl Mazzocone, exec producers Mark Burg, Avi Lerner, Tobe Hooper, Trevor Short, John Thompson, Danny Dimbort, Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell. "Lati and Christa brought the idea of this franchise to us. They were certain of the audience appeal, so we signed on," Millennium Films Chairman Avi Lerner said. "And it turns out they were right. It was a bloody good decision. Lionsgate agreed to distribute the film in the US, and did a fantastic job. We very much hope to partner with them for the next chapter." Do you plan on seeing the next Texas Chainsaw?
