Producer Mark Burg of Twisted Pictures (who now owns ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’) stated that producers and screenwriter Stephen Susco (‘The Grudge 2’) are currently penning the first draft of the next film, which will take the series out of the 70s. Here is what he had to say…
“It’s a ‘what if?’ It’s 35 years later, there’s a relative going back. Why is he going back? I don’t want to set it in a dusty town. How do we make it more urban but keep that feel,” Burg explained. “There will be some relatives, some new people. There’s still the subtext of ‘are they eating these people?’ The whole idea of cannibalism, we’re bringing it back.”
Burg also stated that the new ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ film would be shot in 3D.
Twisted Pictures is the distributor of the ‘Saw’ franchise.
