Alexandra Daddario Hacks into 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D'
Leatherface has found his latest target, as “Percy Jackson & the Olympians” star Alexandra Daddario is in final negotiations to play the female lead in “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D,” Variety's Jeff Sneider exclusively reports. John Luessenhop (“Takers”) is directing the pic that picks up after Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 horror classic. Producers are hoping the film will launch a new fright franchise featuring the iconic, chainsaw-loving villain Leatherface and his oddball family. "Chainsaw Massacre 3D" is set for an October 2012 release. Daddario is expected to reprise the role of Annabeth Chase in “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Sea of Monsters.”
