I think a lot of us were assuming that Danielle Harris (Among Friends, Hatchet 2) would reprise her role as Marybeth in Hatchet 3, and now that assumption has been confirmed.
Speaking with OBX Entertainment Harris said, “I’m excited to be starting Hatchet III next. It’s going to be great.” This is from an appearance at this past weekend’s “Blood On The Beach” convention, and OBX claims she gave the statement yesterday. Given the timing and the fact that Hatchet 3 is currently prepping and is about to shoot in and around New Orleans, Louisiana – I’d say the margin for error is pretty low.
Hatchet 3 will be written and produced by series creator Adam Green who is handing the directing reigns over to longtime camera operator BJ McDonnell. It will continue where the story left off in Hatchet 2, as a young woman sought revenge on the malevolent Victor Crowley who killed her family while they were fishing in Louisiana swamp country. ArieScope Pictures and Dark Sky Films will likely release the film sometime in 2013.
