Director Adam Green just dropped a few hints online about who will be helming the next chapter in his Hatchet saga. Find out what Green had to say after the jump.
In a new interview on Bleeding Cool, Green says that the director of Hatchet III is "not a name that everyone's going to know, but when you hear who it is I think you'll understand why I made the choice I did. What I can say is that he was my first choice all along, even when it came time to do the second one, at a certain point they wanted to do the second one and they didn't want to wait for me, and this was the guy that I thought should do it. He's been part of the Hatchet family the whole way, and I will tease just by saying that he was there for everything. He's the type of guy, he works on a lot of big movies, and if he's wearing his Hatchet crew shirt, and if the guy on the crew for, like Transformers or whatever tries to talk shit, he physically beats the shit out of him. I'm going to be with him the whole way, I'm going to be by the camera the whole time, protecting him, helping him, and I hope it's the best Hatchet movie yet."
Green also remarks that a new slasher franchise reboot is underway in Hollywood, for which he was approached to direct the first installment. He says he turned it down, however, since it sought to employ the found-footage technique used in films like Paranormal Activity, etc. A technique Green felt was wrong for this type of film.
Green is also busy at work preparing his (and fellow director Joe Lynch's) original twisted comedy series for FEARnet, Holliston. Check out the deets here.
