The buzz around pretty 25-year-old actress Alexandra Daddario just got louder. The star of last year’s fantasy-actioner Percy Jackson and the Olympians is in final negotiations to play the female lead in director John Luessenhop’s (Takers) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3-D, a reboot of the popular franchise.
A sequel of sorts, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3-D is said to pick up after the horrific events depicted in Tobe Hooper’s 1974 original and will reportedly find Daddario playing Leatherface’s cousin. Production on the film is set to start this month in Shreveport, La.
Daddario first cut her teeth in the horror genre with Mary Lambert’s (Pet Sematary) haunted house thriller The Attic, but it’s her intense performance in director Stevan Mena’s gruesome indie-slasher Bereavement that has made horror fans take note of the sexy New Yorker.
