To go along with our exclusive news that Gunnar Hansen (aka Leatherface #1) will have a cameo in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, our friends at Dread Central are reporting that franchise creator Tobe Hooper will also have a minor role! No word on what either horror legend will play in the franchise continuation that’s said to kick-start a new trilogy. Hooper recently released a pretty rad book entitled “Midnight Movie.”
In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, arriving in theaters October 5, 2012 from Lionsgate, Tania Raymonde will play Nikki, a small-town girl with an attitude who is the best friend of Heather (Alexandra Daddario), who travels to small-town Texas to collect her inheritance, which includes her deranged cousin Leatherface. Bill Moseley also stars.
