Hatchet 3 has just started filming, and we reported on a number of casting updates last week. We’re back with additional casting news from a recent report that reveals Zach Galligan (pictured below) has joined the project. THR also notes that Cody Blue Snider (Dee Snider’s Son) has been cast in the film and Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead) will compose the score for the movie.
The previously announced cast includes the return of Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder, along with new cast members Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sean Whalen (Laid to Rest), Diane Goldner (The Collector), and Jason Trost (The FP).
BJ McDonnell will direct the film and Adam Green will still be involved as both the writer and producer. The movie will be released sometime in 2013:
“The new movie continues where Hatchet 2 left off, as a search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces and Marybeth learns the secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.”
