Derek Mears Is Just One Of The Many Genre Stars Set To Join The Ensemble Cast Of Hatchet 3

New postby Brian Massey » Thu May 24, 2012 5:19 pm

As Hatchet 3 begins filming in the next couple of days in New Orleans, anticipation for the slasher flick seems to be mixed at best. The first two installments can be placed in the category of love/hate - you either love them or hate them, there are no in betweens - but that may not be the case for the third chapter in the franchise.

In what may be the biggest news of the day, we just learned from Variety that some HUGE casting announcements have been made today featuring some of the most recognizable faces in horror. Read on for all the lovely details.


Genre stalwarts (pictured below in order) Derek Mears ("Friday the 13th"), Caroline Williams ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2"), Sean Whalen ("The People Under the Stairs"), Diane Goldner ("The Collector") and "The FP" writer-director Jason Trost are set to round out the ensemble cast of Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures' horror sequel "Hatchet 3."


Original "Hatchet" cameraman BJ McDonnell is making his directorial debut with the pic, which stars horror icons Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder as "Bayou Butcher" Victor Crowley. 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, who recently starred in "The Aggression Scale," 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.

"Part of the joy in writing these films is being able to write roles with specific actors in mind," says writer-producer Adam Green, who created the popular slasher franchise. "So many great performers from the genre have asked to be included over the years."

Thoughts anyone? I for one am stoked!

might be good, though I have my doubts it will have the same flavor without Adam Green directing
