Director confirmed for relaunch
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.
