Gunnar Hansen made an appearance at the Summer Fears in Tatamagouche, NS, and while he wasn’t quite able to deliver too many details about the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, he did divulge a few interesting bits of information.
Hansen (who played the original Leatherface) does indeed indicate what we’ve come to read via multiple sources: the film is in fact a direct sequel to the original Tobe Hooper helmed shocker, and dishes on the opening of the film.
There’s some really potive news in store for fans, as Hansen ensures that this picture appears far more proming than many of the franchises sequels (which he's apparently not too fond of).
Check out this awesome eight minute clip, and listen close for some cool knowledge nuggets as Gunnar reminisces on the original film (a few facts dropped in this video may legitimately shock you!).
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is scheduled to hit theaters October of 2012.
