Vargas continues, "What we have planned is Texas Chain Saw Massacre in a way that has never been seen. The chaos that was the set of that movie is probably as intense as the movie itself. Anything from cast members accidentally ingesting marijuana, piles of dead cats being burned on set, to people accidentally shooting themselves up with formaldehyde while trying to embalm dead animals on set... and despite all of that and much more, these people made film history. That's like the scrawny kid in class knocking out Mike Tyson. We wanna make something that people who hate horror movies can watch and, at the end of the day, have respect for the cast and crew for wrangling that rabid hellbeast of a film into the can."
Summer of Saw is being produced by TCM's own Sally Hardesty - Marilyn Burns, Jason Poh, Joshua Allan Vargas, and Parrish Randall. Vargas is writing and directing. Shooting is set for August in Groesbeck, Texas.
