R&B star Trey Songz has signed on to play one of the leads in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, the latest remake of Tobe Hooper's extraordinarily gory 1974 horror classic. Songz is set to play the male lead opposite actress Alexandra Daddario in the movie, which is set to be released by Lionsgate on October 5th, 2012.

This will be Songz's first major movie role, though he has some previous acting experience with a small part in Preacher's Kid, a Christian movie that came out last year, and appearances as himself on episodes of The Mo'Nique Show and the ABC Family drama Lincoln Heights.
