Leatherface & The Sawyers Will Saunter on in 'Texas Chainsaw' Sequel

Texas Chainsaw 3D

Another day, another horror sequel/reboot keeps an iconic slasher alive. After barely beating out Django Unchained for the top of the box office last weekend, Millennium Films is pleased enough with Texas Chainsaw 3D to move forward on a sequel. Bloody Digusting was the first to break the news (and Deadline confirmed), and apparently producers acquired the rights to Leatherface and the Sawyer family to make up to seven films. This was always intended to be the first in an all-new franchise (which shouldn't be surprising to anyone). But we're kind of confused with how this title is being titled at the moment. Read on!

Deadline lists the sequel as Texas Chainsaw 4, but we're not sure what the second film in the various sequels is being considered canon in this case. The first film from Tobe Hooper in 1974 is clearly the first, but we're not very sure which film is being regarded as the second in this series if Texas Chainsaw 3D is really the third. This might just be a bit of confusion, and the number may not even matter in the end, but it's worth discussing. Personally, I haven't checked out the new slaughter fest, so I'm not sure how much of the cast will return, but stay tuned for more developments.

    I'm pleased with this, that was a decent movie. Somebody please instruct them to take the Evil Dead route and do away with the CG, though. It's very damaging to the sense of immersion, which is everything in horror films. Then again, it was more of a fun slasher. But still get rid of it.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre directed by Marcus Nispel is #1... Texas Chainsaw the Beginning from Jonathan Liebesman is number 2....Texas Chainsaw 3D is from John Lussenhop....and the new one is Texas Chainsaw 4. Easy.
    • You are incorrect sir, there was a 2nd film made in the 80's following The Breakfast Club. I'm guessing they're using that as the second film rather than The Beginning because that was a prequel.

        That sequel was interesting. Went a completely different direction than the first. Hopper was entertaining, and Bill Moseley is always awesome.

      3D is being tauted as a direct sequel to Hooper's original, completely disregarding any of the other films in the franchise.
