Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4? Or do we call it Texas Chainsaw 3D Two? Really just try and pretend you are surprised to hear about this news. You knew it was inevitable. Yes… Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4 is apparently going to be hitting us in the near future. I will admit I am somewhat surprised considering the first one did turn a profit but wasn't a massive success.
Texas Chainsaw 3D was made for an estimated $20million it brough in just shy of $35million at the box office according to BoxOfficeMojo
Comparing that to the new Evil Dead remake it was made for $17millon and so far has brought in $61million world wide. Both had a similar format of casting unknowns but Evil Dead had a great script where Texas Chainsaw 3D had a gimmick…. namely the 3D.
That all said today from one of our readers comes word from the BBC that yes Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4 is coming and some casting news is already afoot. B. Richards writes to us and tells us;
I saw on BBC Youth Radio that Alexandra Daddario and Dan Yeager are reprising their roles for the sequel as well as new cast members including ex-Disney star Cody Linley and British newcomer Tommy Hatto.They said that because of the success of Texas 3D's twist, the new movie will have a twist with a male protagonist.
I did NOT watch the last Texas Chainsaw 3D movie. Why? Because I have honestly had just about enough of the Texas Chainsaw remakes. Some of you should at this point ask me what gives me the right to say that Texas Chainsaw 3D was no good and only had a gimmicky 3D angle.
Good on you if you did question me on that. My counter is had they of tried to promote Texas Chainsaw 3D on its merits of a wicked story or mindblowing terror I would have gotten on board. Evil Dead did both and I saw it in theaters and loved it.
The new Texas Chainsaw remake seemed to be all about the 3D combined with fresh faces with nice teeth. Neither make me open my wallet at the theater.
Now of course when Texas Chainsaw 3D comes out on DVD and video on demand I will most certainly see it and if its awesome I will eat my words.
Did you see it? Will you see Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4? Sound off in the comments
UPDATE: Worth noting and as Jeremy has rightly called me out in the comments belowTexas Chainsaw 3D was NOT a remake it was a prequel. Ditto for the Evil Dead (2013). To me any film that retreads water and uses the same name is a remake and I am not correct in my old crab apple analysis. So yes its a prequel
