TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D Remake Coming in 2012

I'm a little confused here. Apparently, producer Carl Mazzocone and director John Luessenhop ("Takers") are working on a remake of Tobe Hooper's cult classic "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre". I'm confused, because, I thought we already had remake, produced by Michael Bay, in 2003, directed by Marcus Nispel ("Conan the Barbarian 3D"). That movie even had a prequel in 2006. Nevertheless, here they are, doing an update of the original story, in 3D. Well, at least it's not produced by Michael Bay. The movie is set for release on October 5, 2012.

So far it has been revealed that the story will take place after the events of Tobe Hooper's 1974 original. The screenplay was written by Luessenhop, Adam Marcus ("Jason Goes to Hell") and Debra Sullivan ("Danielle Steel's Once in a Lifetime"). The cast so far includes Alexandra Daddario ("Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief") and Bill Moseley ("Repo! The Genetic Opers"). How this one will turn out, we'll see, but I have a feeling this should have been a direct-to-video release, instead of slashing our wallets wide open with the 3D ticket sales.
