A few days ago, the head of Millennium, Avi Lender, announced that Texas Chainsaw 4 would soon be under production and that progress is being made on the project.
However, it seems that he announced that a bit too early and the film is not as near as it seems.
Producer Mark Burg made this clear in his recent statement in which he said that, “The rights are controlled by Carl and Main Line Pictures, no matter what Millennium says.
Millennium simply sold the foreign rights and they will not tell us when a sequel is ready to be made.
The script was developed by Carl, myself and writer/director John Luessenhop.”
He further said that no one has a right to announce about a sequel at this point in time and even if a sequel is made, it would take a lot of time since it should be better than the previous film.
A spokesman from Millennium, however, responded that the announcement about the sequel was appropriate and the film would not have been possible without the company.
It seems that the there is a bit of an unpleasant battle going on between the creative team and the heads.
Apparently Mazzocone and Burg, the main people in the creative team, are not very happy with the praise showered upon executive producers Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell, who barely played any creative role in the film.
We are not sure how long this battle over the credits would continue.
The film, however, proved to be quite successful, which is why the rumors about a possible sequel are already in circulation.
