I knew something was a little bit fishy when the title to the sequel was announced as Texas Chainsaw 4 from the folks over at Deadline, in reality it turned out to be a typo and as for a sequel? Well, I think someone has been jumping the gun or should I say chainsaw a bit.
According to Deadline, Millennium Films chief Avi Lerner told Deadline that a sequel was going ahead via Millennium Films, however, the green light wasn’t Avi’s to give and in fact no sequel plans have even been made yet.
But even with this you know a sequel is just around the corner, I mean this sucker beat out such films like The Hobbit, Django Unchained and Les Miserables, pretty impressive if you ask me.
In any event, the actual rights holder to the Chainsaw franchise, Mark Burg, told the site;
“The rights are controlled by Carl and Main Line Pictures, no matter what Millennium says, Millennium simply sold the foreign rights and they will not tell us when a sequel is ready to be made. The script was developed by Carl, myself and writer/director John Luessenhop. Millennium and about ten producers came aboard only when we needed their check. Maybe they’re looking for something to sell at Berlin, but they have no right to announce this sequel and if we make another it has to be as good or better than this one and that takes time.”
Unfortunately no sequel just yet, but this is by no means the end of Leatherface, expect many sequels to follow, the chainsaw is back!
