Leatherface Gets Some SPF 15 for Pool Party Scene

An open casting call has been made in Shreveport, LA where filmmakers are seeking extras for their now-filming Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. Under the direction of John Luessenhop, the pic will be casting 18-29 year olds to be extras in a pool party sequence that will film on Monday, August 1. While that’s not a lot of information, it’s fun trying to imagine what it would be like to ave Leatherface storming through a pool party…

Dan Yeager, John Dugan, Bill Moseley, Alexandra Daddario, Sue Rock, Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood, Gunnar Hansen, Tobe Hooper, Paul Rae, Keram Malicki-Sánchez, Ritchie Montgomery, Trey Songz, Marilyn Burns, Shaun Sipos, Thom Barry and Richard Riehler make up the huge cast. The seventh incarnation is a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 film that follows the lead character, Heather, who along with her friends, travel to Texas in order to collect an inheritance. The spin? What would you do if you found out your cousin was Leatherface, and he was now YOURS?

Lionsgate will distribute October 5, 2012.
