Update: A press release for the film has confirmed that John Dugan and Marilyn Burns will reprise their roles as the Grandfather and Verna Carson from Tobe Hooper's original flick in the reboot. Shaun Sipos, Richard Riehle and Thom Barry round out the cast.

So while Gunnar Hansen will stop by and wave and wink in a cameo in "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D", yet another reboot (or whatever) of the aging franchise, a newcomer will be wielding the iconic lumberjack tool. Dan Yeager -- who doesn't even seem to exist on IMDB unless the special effects guy for "Up In The Air" and "Marley & Me" is taking a massive career turn -- will play Leatherface in the new film, chopping up the new cast of mostly unknown or slowly rising actors. And one more has joined their ranks.

The ridiculously named Trey Songz -- the R&B singer who currently has his ode to posteriors "Bottoms Up" invading radios -- will star opposite Alexandra Daddario, playing her boyfriend in the film. THR's announcement hilariously notes that the role will allow Songz to be "physical, romantic and heroic," but what can be more romantic than singing "Girl, you know I love the way you shake it in them jeans"? Who needs Hallmark, right?

Anyway, the cast is rounded out by Sue Rock, Tania Raymond, Bill Mosely, Keram Malicki-Sanchez and Scott Eastwood, with the new tale following Heather (Daddario) who goes to Texas to collect an inheritance, part of which happens to be a chainsaw wielding maniac. The thoroughly mediocre “Takers” helmer John Luessenhop is directing and in case you're still interested, the movie will hit theaters on October 5, 2012.
