It would probably be bigger news if there wasn’t going to be a Texas Chainsaw Massacre installment in 3D, but, that said, hold on to your seats…there’s going to be a Texas Chainsaw Massacre installment in 3D.

Wanna know what it’s gonna be called? Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Has a nice ring to it.

The project will start production in June, according to Lionsgate, which also announced that Takers helmer John Luessenhop is in discussions to direct. As I mentioned, it’s no surprise that they’re going the 3D route with this one, as something about a chainsaw in the audience’s faces might make for a compelling theatergoing experience. I’m tired of watching Leatherface saw characters in half, wishing it was me that was up there getting buzzsawed in the sternum. While I will still end up walking out of the theater with my body intact, I will at least get to know the fear that these fictional characters experience as they look a painful, bloody death in the eye. (The Wrap)

You know Leatherface 3D, right?? It’s the movie about Leatherface: The Guy With Leather For A Face. Anyways, Leatherface 3D has found its director.

Takers director John Luessenhop has been hired to show the maniac the proper way to cut into hot teens with a chainsaw. This film serves as a sequel to the Platinum Dunes produced remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 2003. It’s said that the film picks up immediately where Tobe Hooper’s classic left off before flashing forward 35 years.

Umm… can Leatherface time-travel now? Because that is a horrifying idea. He’d be completel unstoppable and could rewrite history. Hopefully, some brave young scream queen will be able to prevent President Leatherface from being sworn into office. Though I do like the idea of him hunting foreign dignitaries inside the White House. (Bloody Disgusting)
