Dark Sky Films and Ariescope Pictures are pleased to officially announce that both Kane Hodder and Danielle Harris have joined the cast of Hatchet III, the next exciting chapter in the horror saga of swamp-dwelling killer Victor Crowley, which will be written and produced by Adam Green and directed by BJ McDonnell.
Kane Hodder portrayed the evil Crowley in the 2006 Hatchet and will continue in Hatchet 3. In the 2010 sequel, Danielle Harris took over the role of Marybeth, the young woman who, at the movie’s climax, managed to escape Crowley’s clutches (and, apparently, kill him). The new movie continues where Hatchet 2 left off, as a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and Marybeth learns the secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.
Victor Crowley is the second modern horror icon played by Kane Hodder; he was the masked slasher Jason Voorhees in many of the Friday the 13th movies. Danielle Harris started her career as a child actress in Halloween 4 and starred in that series’ reboot as well as such shockers as Stake Land and Left for Dead.
A 2013 release is planned.
