With Danielle Harris now confirmed to return as Marybeth in Dark Sky Films’ Hatchet III, Bloody Disgusting exclusively learned that Sean Whalen (pictured inside), best known for roles in Wes Craven’s People Under the Stairs and Rob Halls’ FX heavy Laid to Rest, is also locked in for a trip to the bloody swamp to come face-to-face with Victor Crowley.
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.
Hatchet 3 is currently prepping and is about to shoot in and around New Orleans, Louisiana. ArieScope Pictures and Dark Sky Films will likely release the film sometime in 2013.
