It’s only October 2011 but Hollywood is already gearing up for October 2012. Lionsgate in particular will have a very bloody month. That’s when they’re expected to debut their latest acquisition, Adam Wingard’s awesome horror/thriller You’re Next as well as the latest installment in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D.

It’s directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and stars Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief) as a young girl who heads to Texas to collect an inheritance that includes the infamous Leatherface.

Takers director John Luessenhop will be behind the camera this time, for a story that is meant as a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper‘s original film, though it takes place in the present day. Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Hall Pass) was cast in the lead late last week, and now Tania Raymonde (Lost) has been added, too. Read More »
