On July 16, 2008, Charles Band announced that he would be making Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver, which he expected to be released in 2009. William Butler, scriptwriter of the Gingerdead Man films, says, "There'll be more laughs and gore than the second one."Template:Cite quote The film was slated for a 2009 release, but filming was delayed until January 2010. Full Moon Entertainment announced on their YouTube page that the film is slated for a September 13, 2011 release, and other sites like CDUniverse have the same release date.
The film was rumored to be shot in 3D, but the trailer released by Full Moon says nothing about the film in 3D. It was most likely a scrapped gimmick announced very early in production as an idea.
One thing that confuses many is why Full Moon Entertainment chose to release a box set with all three films before releasing the third film alone. The box set is currently available on shopping websites, but usually for very high prices.
On January 28, 2011 Full Moon Entertainment released a one minute trailer for the film on their YouTube account. While the trailer didn't mention anything about a release date, comments from Full Moon staid it would be released in April 2011. Once again, the film was delayed until September 13, 2011. Due to the problems with the third film, it is unlikely anymore sequels will follow this one.
