B.J. McDonnell Will Direct ‘Hatchet 3’

I know exactly what you’re thinking: WHO?!

Unfortunately for good ol’ Victor Crowley his creator Adam Green, the writer and director of the first two films in the Hatchet series, won’t be directing the next installment in the kill-tastic adventures of the swamp-dwelling slasher. B.J. McDonnell, the cameraman on Hatchet and last year’s controversial sequel Hatchet 2, will be making his directorial debut on the upcoming Hatchet 3. Green will likely remain on the new sequel as a producer.

SDCC 2011: ‘Hack/Slash’ Meets ‘Hatchet’ In New Image One-Shot

Tim Seeley, writer of Hack/Slash, announced at the Image Comics panel on Friday at San Diego Comic-Con 2011 that he is shepherding a crossover book with the film Hatchet based in his universe, to be released in November.

It turns out that Seeley is good friends with the director of Hatchet, Adam Green and the two of them decided that it makes sense that the two worlds cross in comic book form. It does make sense that Cassie, the heroine of Hack/Slash who travels from town to town killing monsters and serial killers, takes on Victor Crowley the retro serial killer featured in Hatchet. The one-shot releases on November and Seeley believes that this particular issue will indeed not be nominated for an Eisner award.

Adam Green’s ‘Hatchet 2’ Pulled From AMC Theaters … But Why?
  |  @   |  

Quite the buzz has grown recently around director Adam Green‘s slasher flick sequel, Hatchet II, and now an undying (fittingly) discussion is becoming all the more heated.

If you’re at all familiar movie ratings systems, you’re likely aware that the MPAA heads it all up and has been the source of much controversy over the years. Multitudes of films have struggled to get their movie down from an R rating to a PG-13, while many others have been forced to cut and trim crucial content just to find a way to reach an R rating down from the feared NC-17.

See, the problem with the system is that if this stuffy group of people who run the MPAA decide to pin your movie with an NC-17 rating, it’s not able to go into wide release because most theaters won’t touch them. This leaves you only the choice of releasing an NC-17 or unrated product in a limited amount of theaters, and that’s why you hear so much about movies having to cut down and earn that R. In a perfect world, any movie short of X-rated could be shown in most theaters, and those who are responsible for preventing minors from seeing them would do their jobs and ensure it. As it is, people can’t handle that overwhelming responsibility, and this is the way of the movie-going world.
