Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to settle into the holiday spirit…with Texas Chainsaw 3D. A new TV spot and trailer have popped up for the re-imagined slasher pic, though the trailer doesn’t offer much in the way of new footage. But both do showcase star Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), so you can’t really go wrong there.
Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers), Texas Chainsaw 3D also stars Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood, Bill Moseley, Dan Yeager, Gunnar Hansen and Paul Rae. The film opens in 3D on January 4th. Hit the jump to check out the new TV spot and trailer.
Lionsgate has announced the full cast for director John Luessonhop’s (Takers) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Joining Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, and Scott Eastwood in the pic is a slew of names including: Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Keram Malicki-Sanchez (Punisher: War Zone), Shaun Sipos (Final Destination 2), and R&B artist Trey Songz. Per the press release, the film will also feature a handful of throwback appearances with the original Leatherface, Gunnar Hansen, set to make a cameo and original lead Marilyn Burns and John Dugan appearing in the pic as well. Burns will play the role of Verna Carson whereas Dugan will be reprising his timelessly creepy turn as Grandfather.
As for the iconic role of Leatherface, Lionsgate has tapped newcomer Dan Yeager who earned the part after a chance meeting with Luessenhop (talk about good timing).
