Yesterday came word from producer Avi Lerner that his Millennium Films was officially moving ahead with a follow-up to last week’s box-office topper “Texas Chainsaw 3D”.
It was suggested shooting would begin later this year in Louisiana. Now, producer Carl Mazzacone and executive producer Mark Burg have said that there’s no progress and Lerner was flat out wrong.
Burg says: “Millennium simply sold the foreign rights and they will not tell us when a sequel is ready to be made. The script was developed by Carl, myself and writer/director John Luessenhop. Millennium and about ten producers came aboard only when we needed their check. Maybe they’re looking for something to sell at Berlin, but they have no right to announce this sequel and if we make another it has to be as good or better than this one and that takes time.”
