Alexandra Daddario ("Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief") is in final negotiations to play the female lead in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D" for Lionsgate and Nu Image reports Variety.
John Luessenhop ("Takers") is directing the reimagining which picks up on events after Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic in which Sally Hardesty (Marilyn Burns) was the sole surviving escapee of a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals.
Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan co-wrote the script with a polish by Kirsten Elms and Luessenhop. Carl Mazzocone is producing and shooting kicks off this month in Shreveport, Louisiana.
The film is being seen as a second reboot of the franchise following the 2003 remake and its lacklustre prequel.
