HCF colleague Ross Hughes is going to shake his head in despair as I type this, but I still haven’t caught up with the Hatchet movies despite liking slashers almost as much as he does. And I’d best get a move on, because it seems that there are going to be two more films in this series. Recently, Danielle Harris, who played heroine Marybeth Dunstan in Hatchet 2, 3, and 4, was in attendance at the Monster-Mania convention in Hunt Valley, Maryland, USA. While taking part in a Halloween Reunion Q&A panel, she told attendees:
“There’s supposed to be two more. I know the rumour Adam told me is they’re going to shoot them at the same time. I have not read a script or done anything, I just know that he always makes me do really stupid shit. And a lot of it. So hopefully I’m not going to be handcuffed an entire movie this time, or covered in… It’s completely insane, what he has me do. But I know there’s supposed to be two more, which is great.”
Some time before series writer Adam Green said that:
“Originally I had only planned for Hatchet to be a trilogy, but when I decided to bring Victor Crowley back for more I planned out another complete roadmap for where it could all go. With the success of Victor Crowley [Hatchet 4], it looks like I’ll once again be able to make the sequels I have planned.”
What with the Friday The 13th series stuck indefinitely in legal battles, fans can still enjoy what seems to be the next best thing with Kane Hodder playing a swamp-dwelling mass murderer….
