Filming is officially underway in New Orleans on Hatchet III, the latest installment of the cult horror series from MPI/Dark Sky Films and ArieScrope Pictures.

Zach Galligan, who is best known for starring in 1980s classics Gremlins and Gremlins 2: The New Batch, has joined the cast, as has Cody Blue Snider, the son of Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider, and Rileah Vanderbilt, who plays a SWAT team member.

As previously announced, also heading to the Louisiana swamps: Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Diane Goldner (The Collector), Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs) and The FP writer-director Jason Trost. Bear McCreary, the composer who worked on Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica and scored The Walking Dead, will be handling scoring duties for the movie.

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.

    i liked H1 and really hated H2 but i have to admit i really like the casting for this movie! Caroline Williams, Sean Whelan, Derek Mears, etc, (and of course Danielle Harris!) have made me a LOT more interested in this movie!

    Hatchet 1&2 were hillariously grotesque. I look foward to another trip into the swamp. I get meet Kane Hodder in about a month at the Fright Night Film Festival, so maybe I can get lil’ inside scoop on the film.
