‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ Sequel Isn’t Moving Forward, After All — Not Yet, Anyway

Yesterday we reported that Millennium Films were already moving forward on a sequel to ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D‘ on the heels of a successful weekend at the box office, but the rights holders haven’t exactly given their blessing.

‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ exceeded expectations over the weekend, taking in $21.7 million at the box office and beating out heavyweights like ‘The Hobbit‘ and ‘Django Unchained,’ and if that wasn’t surprising enough, Millennium Films exec Avi Lerner revealed that they were already moving forward with a sequel to be shot this year, confusingly titled ‘Texas Chainsaw 4.’

But now Deadline reports that Lerner may have jumped the gun — ‘Texas Chainsaw’ rights holders Carl Mazzocone and Mark Burg say that the go-ahead wasn’t Avi Lerner’s to give, and they’re unaware of any sequel plans. 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.

Looks like the folks at Millennium need to check their privilege. And also maybe learn math — how is the sequel supposed to be the fourth film if ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ is allegedly a direct sequel to the original ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’? Wouldn’t that make it the third film? Hello? Anyone? Bueller?
