Lionsgate is releasing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre on October 5, 2012.
The next chapter in the series will now join Dimension Films' Halloween 3D which opens a few weeks later on October 26.
John Luessenhop is directing the new Chainsaw with Carl Mazzocone producing.
"I'm excited to re-conceive this iconic horror classic in a contemporary setting for a new generation of horror fans to enjoy," Mazzocone says in a press release "Both John Luessenhop and I intend to deliver a new chapter derived from Tobe Hooper's 1973 masterpiece with the goal of making it as horrifying as the original, in 3D."
Bill Moseley is the only actor so far to join the cast. Expect more announcements to come.
It's good to see some of cinema's best slashers arriving in time for Halloween!
