Despite “Texas Chainsaw 3D” getting terrible reviews, it earned nearly $22 million its first weekend. That’s led to development of a sequel, titled “Texas Chainsaw 4” which is set to begin filming later this year.¬†Carl Mazzocone will produce with Tobe Hooper, Mark Burg, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, John Thompson, Danny Dimbort, Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell executive producing.

Now, the name “Texas Chainsaw 4” is a bit confusing. This will be the eight film featuring Leatherface. And, since “Texas Chainsaw 3D” follows the original film’s events, technically this should be the third film in that line of thinking. So…the four is coming from…?
