A few month's ago we brought you the big news that Lionsgate and Millennium Films are set to bring us a new TEXAS CHAINSAW film which will simply be titled LEATHERFACE. It is going to be a prequel and is indeed in the works. The official plot details are tight lipped but it is said that it will be serving as an origin story that follows Leatherface's teenage years in the 1970's.
As far as who will be directing, Millennium Films had talks with some directors, and their quest of using a pair of them has now panned out. Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who were the main choices have been confirmed to direct LEATHERFACE. This duo is responsible for INSIDE, and the upcoming AMONG THE LIVING.
Seth M. Sherwood has written the script for the prequel to the original 1974 horror classic. Millennium Films is financing the project and producing the LEATHERFACE movie will be Carl Mazzocone, along with Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman as executive producers.
Production could begin as early as this winter.
