Following a strong opening weekend for Texas Chainsaw 3D, Millennium Films has made plans to develop another sequel, Texas Chainsaw 4. Deadline says the project will shoot later this year in Louisiana.
Texas Chainsaw 3D, which hit theaters January 4, continues the story of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 original. Directed by John Luessenhop, the film has already grossed more than $22 million.
The title Texas Chainsaw 4 is a bit perplexing, however, as the project would represent the eighth film in the overall franchise and, theoretically, only the third film to follow the “continuity” of Texas Chainsaw 3D.
Carl Mazzocone will produce with Hooper, Mark Burg, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, John Thompson, Danny Dimbort, Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell executive producing.
