Scott Eastwood, the youngest son of actor/director Clint Eastwood, has joined the cast of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, Deadline reports. The film will be directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and is set to take place after Tobe Hooper's original 1974 horror classic. The script was penned by Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan, and polished by Kirsten Elms and Luessenhop. 

Massacre 3D is being produced by Carl Mazzocone and exec produced by Avi Lerner and Mark Burg. The goal is for the film to help launch a new fright franchise featuring the iconic, chainsaw-loving villain Leatherface and his oddball family. Filming begins this week in Shreveport, Louisiana, to meet it's Oct. 5, 2012 scheduled release date. 

Eastwood recently completed the Charles Burmeister-directed Epic, the Jack Heller-directed Enter Nowhere and the Lawrence Roeck-directed Carmel. He has also starring roles in films directed by his father, including Invictus, Gran Torino and Flags of Our Fathers. »

Clint Eastwood's Kid Joins the 'Texas Chainsaw' Family

13 July 2011 5:47 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

If you were Leatherface, would you mess with Clint Eastwood's kid?

Yeah, you probably would. And that's exactly what's going to happen as Scott Eastwood is set to face the saw in the new 3D adventures of everyone's favorite Texas family, according to Deadline.

Eastwood joins "Percy Jackson" star Alexandra Daddario in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D," a rebooted slaughter of sorts that takes place shortly after the events of director Tobe Hooper's original 1974 nightmare. The film will be directed by John Luessenhop ("Takers") and begins production this week in Louisiana.

No word yet on who will be playing the new Leatherface, though we expect it will probably be a rather large fella.

Scott Eastwood has appeared in a handful of his dad's films, including "Flags of Our Fathers," "Invictus" and "Gran Torino." He's recently wrapped on a couple of indies, including the military drama "Epic" and the horror film "Enter Nowhere, »

Does the world really need more 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' remakes? In 3D?

Maybe if they star Scott Eastwood, who happens to be the really, really ridiculously good looking son of Clint Eastwood.

The younger Eastwood has previously acted in some of his dad's films, including 'Invictus', 'Gran Torino' and 'Flags of Our Fathers,' as well as the indies 'Epic,' 'Enter Nowhere' and 'Carmel.'
