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.
