And the role in question? Producer. That’s right, folks, legendary terror hottie Christa Campbell will be stepping into a whole new role with the latest remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
This newest remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre takes a young lady who’s got an inheritance waiting for her down in Texas, so she goes down with a group of friends to check it out. What she discovers when she gets down there, though, is that her inheritance includes a certain iconic serial killer.
Sounds like a disaster to me, and worse yet, it seems that this will be Lions Gate’s new Halloween franchise of choice. A sad followup to the terrific Saw franchise, but still, there’s enough room here to give this the benefit of the doubt. After all, it might work out better than expected. They’ve been doing remakes and knockoffs of this series for years; why shouldn’t at least one of them be, you know, good? Look for this one to hit theaters October 5th, 2012.
