Are you sitting down for this one? Today we got word on a brand new horror film that will pair up Dan Madigan (writer of Lionsgate’s See No Evil) and the legendary Tobe Hooper (Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Poltergeist) for a new film entitled Tequila Joe – who Hooper calls “the Mexican Freddy Kruger” This will be Hooper’s next theatrical release. You can read quotes from Hooper, along with more details inside.
Bloody disgusting has learned that Tobe Hooper, director of the original and only “Texas Chain Saw Massacre” is ready to helm his next film, which he plans for theatrical release.
Teaming up with horror scribe Dan Madigan (See No Evil), the duo is out to create what Hooper describes as “a tequila swigging, meth-snorting, whore mongering, foul-mouthed, machete wielding murderous ghoul called ‘Tequila Joe’. ”
What attracted Hooper to the project was the quality of the story, something he hasn’t seen in years, “This is the best horror story I have heard in years,” remarks Hooper, “I have not been this passionate about a project since the first Chainsaw. Dan really hit this one out of the ballpark. I loved his original draft to ‘See No Evil’, it was un-friggin’-relenting and pretty intense – but Dan was disappointed that the producers changed what he wanted to show; but everything in Dan’s script new just blew me away.”
“What Dan created is the Mexican Freddy Kruger, real wild stuff. We are ready to go now!“
