Victor Crowley is officially returning as pre-production is underway in New Orleans on Hatchet III, which has officially revealed the throwback cast.
Here’s who will be heading to the Louisiana swamps: Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Diane Goldner (The Collector) and The FP writer-director Jason Trost. Also officially added is The People Under the Stairs star Sean Whalen, whom Bloody Disgusting exclusively announced on April 25; it’s a nice bit of toldja so to those horror sites that reported we were wrong.
Original Hatchet cameraman BJ McDonnell is making his directorial debut with Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures’ horror sequel, which stars previously announced horror icons Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder as “Bayou Butcher” Victor Crowley. “The story finds Harris hunting down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Crowley’s ghost terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.” Mears will play a brooding, pompous SWAT team leader who is sent in to contain the carnage strewn about the haunted swamp. Williams will play a fast-talking journalist who fancies herself an expert on the legend of supernatural stalker Crowley.
