Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief) is in final talks to snag the female lead in director John Luessenhop’s (Takers) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Per Variety, Lionsgate’s pic will take place following the events of director/co-writer Tobe Hooper’s 1974 original with production set to begin later this month in Louisiana. Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan co-wrote Chainsaw 3D with Luessonhop and Kirsten Elms later performing rewrite duties. The film is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 5th, 2012. In addition to Percy Jackson, Daddario recently appeared alongside Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis in the Farrelly Bros. comedy Hall Pass and in the USA series White Collar.
