Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures have released the first teaser poster for Hatchet III. This limited edition poster will be available at the San Diego Comic-Con, where some of the cast and crew will be present for a Hatchet III autograph session:
"This Saturday, July 14th, Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures will be distributing limited edition teaser posters for their upcoming horror sequel HATCHET III exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con. On-hand at SDCC to sign the posters will be writer/producer Adam Green, director BJ McDonnell, and cast members Kane Hodder, Zach Galligan, Caroline Williams, and Rileah Vanderbilt.
The teaser poster, featuring Kane Hodder as slasher icon Victor Crowley, offers fans their first look at producer Adam Green's hotly-anticipated film.
The official HATCHET III signing will be held on Saturday, July 14th on the San Diego Comic-Con floor at area/table AA21 from 02:30 PM - 04:30 PM.Each fan who comes to the signing will receive a free limited edition poster, which will only be available at Comic-Con 2012. Fans can also catch Victor Crowley walking the convention floor throughout the day, and those who snap a picture of themselves with Crowley and tweet it (tagging @darkskyfilms), will be entered to win a Hatchet Army t-shirt and limited edition poster.
HATCHET III is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films and Green’s Los Angeles-based ArieScope Pictures. The film marks cinematographer McDonnell's directorial debut after having handled A and B camera operations on such features as Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake, Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and Adam Green's first two Hatchet films."
The Hatchet III cast includes the return of Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder, along with new cast members Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Caroline Williams (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Sean Whalen (Laid to Rest), Diane Goldner (The Collector), and Jason Trost (The FP).
BJ McDonnell is on board as director this time around, but Adam Green is still 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.”
