TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE FOETUS

HOLLYWOOD – The Latest Texas Chainsaw Massacre film is to go deep into the past. 

Following the success at cinemas this Friday of the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, Lionsgate have announced a further nineteen films based on the popular abattoir worker/murderer franchise.

‘We think that Leatherface and chums just have so many other stories to tell,’ said Munkus Struttal, Lionsgate CEO. ‘And we’re very eager to cash the cheques and buy the cars and houses that the money those movies earn give us.’

Jon Favreau is directing the first two films in what is already being described as a saga:

We’re going for a Harry Potter style biography of Leatherface from soup to nuts. I’m directing the first two films in the series: Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Foetus and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Baby. In the first film there’s a fantastic scene, kind of like a Caesarian section, which is ironic because the very first chainsaw was designed for exactly that. Not from the inside out though obviously.

Doesn’t the making of sequels of dodgy genre properties represent a dip in your career?

Are you kidding me? After Cowboys and Aliens I’m just glad anybody will hire me. 

 Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Foetus will be released in 2019.

HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 3 CONFIRMED

HOLLYWOOD – Lionsgate announce that there will now be a The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will be followed by a further film, tentatively titled The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 3.

Just as fans were preparing for the final installment of the Hunger Games franchise it has been decided to further divide the final book into another part – The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 3. Director Francis Lawrence dropped by the Studio Exec Bungalow to explain the studio’s thinking.

The signs for Mockingjay Part 2 are really good. We’re going to make a lot of money and get a lot of people going to see the film which is excellent. But the thing is as it stands this is the final film and so, once we’ve done it, then all of a sudden, no more money, no more movies. We realized if we cut the last thirty minutes of the new film and then add another hour of stuff we’ll have part three of Mockingjay and another smash hit release on our hands.

But what is the new material going to be based on?

When we did the first few films, we left out some stuff. We short changed page 19 of the first book. So this way we can go back and fill in all those gaps. Jennifer Lawrence filmed a lot of stuff we cut out as well. So, that can all go back in, bits where she started laughing or got the line wrong. We’re also getting a lot of material from the appendices.

The appendices?

Yeah, it’s what Peter Jackson told me to say. The appendices.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 3 will be released in December, 2022.
