Opening January 4th is director John Luessenhop’s (Takers) Texas Chainsaw 3D. The film acts as a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original, ignoring the many reboots, prequels and remakes, and picks up where the 1974 film left off. After Sally escapes to safety the enraged townspeople of Newt, Texas descend on the Sawyers, burning their house to the ground with the family still inside. Decades later, Heather (Alexandra Daddario) inherits a Texas Estate from a grandmother she never knew she had, and when she brings along a group of friends to scope out her new home they unwittingly unleash Leatherface on the small town once more. The film also stars Tania Raymonde, Tremaine “Trey Songz” Neverson, Scott Eastwood, Bill Moseley, Dan Yeager, Gunnar Hansen and Paul Rae.
At the recent Los Angeles press day, I sat down with Daddario and Neverson. We talked about their experience filming with 3D cameras, if they are fans of horror genre, watching the original, if they found it frightening to shoot a horror film, and who provided the comic relief on set. Hit the jump to watch.
