Trey Songz Will Make Big Screen Acting Debut In New "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" 3D Reimagining

Wait, you mean another version on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is being developed? As my Australian pals would say, Crikey!

Since the 1974 Tobe Hooper original, we’ve seen two sequels, a remake, and a prequel, and maybe more that I’m forgetting.

Apparently, that wasn’t enough, as another one is coming; this one is described as a “reimagining,” which will be shot in 3D, with R&B crooner/rapper Trey Songz now attached to star, playing one of the lead roles – his big screen acting debut.

Specifically, the boyfriend of one of the female leads played by Alexandra Daddario, who’d been previously cast.

John Luessenhop (Takers) is directing for Lionsgate, who plan to release the film on October 5, 2012, close to Halloween.

Shooting begins this month in Shreveport, Louisiana. Producers are hoping to not only reboot the franchise but to also to break a group of fresh-faced actors.

That’s right folks, Leatherface is coming back in 3D.

Any guesses on how far into the film Trey’s character makes it alive…?
