Apparently chatter about TEXAS CHAINSAW 4, a misspelled title and misreported sequel, was premature.
Executive Producer Mark Burg: “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.“
There’s a lot of parties involved which muddies the situation, but clearly, it’s box office success will trump any problems, and I’m sure we’ll be hearing a green light on a sequel soon, especially since this rumor has caused quite the stir.
John Luessenhop’s TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D is in theaters, and stars Alexandria Daddario, Gunnar Hansen, Tania Raymonde, and future Oscar contender Trey Songz.
