Movie News: A bunch of people sign on for Hostel 3

Ugh, give this franchise a break, seriously.  I heard about this news today because I was doing a little thinking about Hostel.  Much like Saw, the awesomeness of the original has been pretty watered down by sequels.  I really ought to give Hostel a rewatch, but in the meantime, it looks like they're making a third one.

Eli Roth will not be involved with this abomination, but some recognizable actors have signed on.  Let's see:

-John Hensley (Matt from "Nip/Tuck")
-Brian Hallisay ("Bones")
-Sarah Habel ("Party Down")
-Kip Pardue ("The Rules of Attraction")
-Skyler Stone ("The Island")
-Thomas Kretchsmann ("King Kong")
-Chris Coy (Barry from "True Blood")

This time, the slicing and dicing will take place in Las Vegas where a bachelor party goes horribly wrong and likely ends in gratuitous torture porn and other such nonsense.  Blah.  How can they keep calling the freakin' thing "Hostel" when it no longer has anything to do with actual hostels?!
