We’ve just posted a new look at Texas Chainsaw 3D, which picks up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The image displays Gunnar Hansen, the man behind the Leatherface mask in Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

In theaters January 4, 2013, the slasher is being directed by John Luessenhop from a screenplay by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms. 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 Riehle star. It’s been rated “R” by the MPAA for “strong, grisly violence and language throughout.

“Texas Chainsaw 3D picks up decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre seen in Tobe Hooper’s ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.’ In it, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars.

    Really? No comments? It’s Gunnar f*cking Hansen!

    Awesome to see him back in a film bearing the TCM name.

    Awesome, hopefully the movie is awesome. You people should watch Brutal Massacre: A Comedy. It has Gunnar Hansen and the movie is kind of a satire on how the quality of horror movies have declined.

    Also, I don’t know if this has been answered yet, but why did they take masssacre out of the title? Not that it makes a big difference, just wondering though.
