Petersburg, Virginia native Trey Songz will go from performing on stage in front of thousands of fans to fighting for survival against the iconic “Leatherface” in Lionsgate Studios’ upcoming horror reboot Texas Chainsaw 3D.
The new film is a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Songz is among the new group of teenagers who are terrorized by the power tool loving, flesh-mask wearing killer.
Songz is currently on tour in support of his latest album Chapter 5, and he will also be seen on screen again in next year’s comedy Baggage Claim, with Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and Adam Brody (Jennifer’s Body).

Texas Chainsaw 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.
Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars…
