Texas Chainsaw 3D has done very well at the box office (read our review). It hit the top spot in the US over the weekend taking over $21 million and, unsurprisingly, a sequel to the John Luessenhop directed film has been given the go ahead.
Deadline had the news that Millennium Films is moving ahead with Texas Chainsaw 4, with production to begin later this year in Louisiana.
“Produces Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell 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.”
There is no word on where they will go with the next film and I am not sure if Texas Chainsaw 4 is the best name for it.
Are you happy that Leatherface will be heading to the big screen once more?
