Horror fans rejoice, because chainsaw maniac Leatherface is on a new rampage in Lionsgate's "Texas Chainsaw 3D." Much like the Halloween franchise did with "H2O" (1998), the latest installment in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise disregards all the other films in the series and is a direct sequel to the original Tobe Hooper classic of 1974.
Heather (Alexandra Daddario) discovers she was adopted when she is left an inheritance from her grandmother. Heather, along with her friends, travels to Texas and discovers she has inherited a mansion. Unbeknownst to Heather, she is actually the long lost cousin of the Texas chainsaw massacre suspect Leatherface (Dan Yeager), who is still alive and lurking in the bowels of the manor.
The sequel will be released next year -- almost 39 years after the original film hit theaters. For the story, the events of the film occur approximately 20 years later. Several cast members from the 1974 movie are returning for "3D," including a cameo appearance by the first actor to portray Leatherface: Gunnar Hansen.
Marilyn Burns (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2) also appear in the new film. Also returning is John Dugan. Dugan played the part of Grandpa in the original motion picture and reprises the role in this new sequel.
The film co-stars Tremaine Neverson, Tania Raymonde, Keram Malicki-Sanchez, Shaun Sipos, Scott Eastwood, Elena Sanchez, Trey Songz, Tom Barry, Sue Rock, Dodie Brown and Richard Riehle. The movie is directed by John Luessenhop (Takers and Lockdown).
"Texas Chainsaw 3D" opens in theaters on January 4, 2013.
