Trey Songz Joins The Cast Of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D”

The smooth crooner signs on as the male lead in the horror remake.

Trey Songz is putting down the mic to flex his acting chops. The R&B singer has signed on to star as one of the leads in the upcoming horror flick The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, another remake of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic.

Songz will star as the male lead and the boyfriend of previously announced cast member Alexandra Daddario. John Luessenhop (Takers) has been tapped to direct from a script written by Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan.

The film, which begins shooting later this month in Shreveport, Louisiana, is due in theaters on October 5, 2012.

    The original Chain Saw's a masterpiece and shouldn't be tampered with. Unfortunately, the movie studios are run by avaricious accountants who place a greater importance on commerce over art. This affects the quality of the material released, especially horror flicks, as they often rely on rehashing well-loved back catalogue titles. Last year's I Spit On Your Grave was an improvement on the original, mainly because the '70s version is a grind house exploitation flick and the new one is more professional. Chain Saw can't be improved, but the new one should explore the Ed Gein back story, which was only touched upon schematically in Hooper's classic.

    I hope this faggot dies with his homosexually voice this nigga is also a sell out sold his soul for fame faggot ass bitch.

    I bet 5 dollars Trey Songs is gonna die. Chris Brown died in both Stomp The Yard AND Takers so you Trey Songz is gonna die. Hollywood doesn't like gay ass r&b singers.

  • so...

    i hope he dies in it....while saying "Come On" in that gay ass voice.

    A black man in a slasher flick is never a good sign

    I don't think Hollywood is capable of making an original movie anymore. You should only be allowed one remake of a movie every 30 years.

    this may be way off, but this reminds me of Busta Rhymes starring in Halloween: Resurrection and how terrible that movie turned out

  • Jose Vasquez

    This movie seemed doom to fail before Trey signed on. 1, the director, 2, it's shot in 3D. They're obviously only looking to sell tickets rather than make a decent movie.

      Hahahahahaha! That's amazing! I think the director hate Trey song so much that he wants to end the man's life in a horror film. LOL! smart move from him.

    is there a shortage of qualified actors out there? how come they keep letting these rappers and singers be in the movies

      Wider audience. Trey Songz is a singer so he will bring the female crowd and not only that but he's also black, so alot of black people will watch the movie simply because he's in it. They're basically trying to reach a bigger audience just like how rappers and singers try to reach the white audience with their music.

    How Many times are they gonna remake this?? Original >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>All the sequals & Remakes And LOL @ this dude being in it, I Might be tempted to watch this just to see Trey Songz Die, I cant front, Seeing Leatherface chop this dude up might make the movie worth watching

    • IDK

      funny how we're talking about horror movies in a hip-hop site lol. but yea, the original was way better than the sequels and remakes. the first remake was alright, but too cliche, just like every other horror movie nowadays
