Hatchet 3 Has a Director, Green Speaks

Adam Green (Hatchet, Hatchet 2) is currently in London for the annual FrightFest film festival and he spoke to Bleeding Cool about Hatchet 3. Shooting is expected to begin in February 2012 and apparently Green has found a director to take the helm.

Green says, "I hope everyone is excited because he was the right person for it. It�s 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."

Who do you think will pull Victor Crowley's strings this time, folks?

It'll be Joe Lynch, I can already tell. If Green at least isn't writing, I don't think I'll be in for it.

this has a chance of being good! HATCHET 2 was abysmal. i love Danielle but even she couldn't save this movie with looked like a high school student was making a home movie or something. part 1 was pretty good but part 2 was cringe-inducing. hopefully part 3 will be good!

No, it'll be Jason Miller. Joe Lynch has not been part of the Hatchet family the whole way.

he said the guy works on big movies. that's neither Joe Lynch or Jason Miller. that sounds like Joel David Moore to me.

Come on, it's obvious that John Carl Buechler is helming the next one.

I still don't know why people have such a problem with this movie. It was good to me. Can't wait for the 3rd!

And how will they explain his return this time? Hatchet 2 sucked really bad. A lot of hype for nothing.
