BJ McDonnell’s Hatchet III hits limited theaters June 14 from MPI/Dark Sky Films. After yesterday’s clip it’s apparent that the beginning of this new film flows directly from the ending of the last, just the same as Hatchet 2 picked up right after the original Hatchet.
So it makes sense that writer/producer Adam Green would eventually want to cut all three films together, Godfather style, with extra and uncut scenes. And, according to Under The Gun, that’s what he’s planning on doing. “ Green told the packed theater he plans to one day release the complete Hatchet trilogy as one single, epic feature film. He added the new cut would also include new sequences which were left out of the previous films, including at least one additional death scene intended for the original.”
The report goes on to mention that this might not happen for some time due to Green’s various projects and the fact that Anchor Bay owns the first film and Dark Sky owns the other two.
