Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D Rolling This Summer

ON

Director confirmed for relaunch

As previously reported, Shock has been able to confirm that director John Luessenhop is indeed directing Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D for Lionsgate.

Carl Mazzacone is producing.

“I’m excited to re-conceive this iconic horror classic in a contemporary setting for a new generation of horror fans to enjoy,” said producer Mazzocone. “Our story picks up where the original left off. Both John Luessenhop and I intend to deliver a new chapter derived from Tobe Hooper’s 1973 masterpiece with the goal of making it as horrifying as the original — in 3D!”

Lionsgate is teaming with Nu Image (The Expendables) to relaunch the TCM brand. Shooting will begin this summer.
