Leatherface has found his latest target – Grammy-nominated rapper and R&B artist Trey Songz.
Songz has signed to play one of the leads in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, the latest reimagining of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic about a group of teens who run into a family of cannibals in Texas, writes THR.
Songz will play the male lead and the boyfriend of the previously-cast Alexandra Daddario in the Millennium/Nu Image pic, which will be released on October 5, 2012 by Lionsgate. Chainsaw will be Songz’s big screen acting debut — the part allows the budding thespian to be physical, romantic and heroic.
John Luessenhop (Takers) is directing the pic, which was written by Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan. Kirsten Elms and Luessenhop did polish work on it.
