Adam Green’s Hatchet films brought back the good times of slasher films of the eighties, blending comedic moments with buckets upon buckets of the red stuff. Also he introduced us to a new icon, his name is Victor Crowley, so how about this third Hatchet film we’ve been mentioning about?
Well, according to the guys over at Dread Central the director for Hatchet III will be BJ McDonnell, he was the camera-man for Hatchet and Hatchet II and helped make Hatchet what it is today.
McDonnell said; “I’ve been with the Hatchet team from the very beginning and am honored and thrilled that Adam has handed me the reins on this third movie. I grew up watching horror films, and like Adam Green, I’m a true genre fan at heart. I have been waiting for an opportunity like this to step up and make my directorial debut with something I love and know inside and out. Working together with Adam, we plan to make a kick-ass movie!”
Also Adam Green added his two cents; ““BJ was not only the camera operator on the first two Hatchet movies. He was there alongside me creating every shot, working closely with me to craft each scene, moment, outrageous kill, and performance. He is absolutely beloved by the entire Hatchet family, and his experience on everything from huge studio films to smaller independent productions will ensure that he will do the franchise proud.”
Adam Green is said to work closely with BJ McDonnell which is a co-production of ArieScope Pictures and Dark Sky Films.
