Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Riding the coattails of the recent news that Sam Strike will be taking on the title role in the Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo directed LEATHERFACE prequel, more news about the project has now surfaced.
According to TheWrap, actor James Bloor is now in the final stages of negotiation to join Sam Strike in the upcoming LEATHERFACE film.
The TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE prequel is presented as a mystery of sorts about three teenage psychopaths, one of whom grows up to be Leatherface.
Bloor will play Ike, a budding young maniac who, like Strike’s character, also grows up to potentially wield the iconic chainsaw.
It’s unclear if there will be multiple actors playing Leatherface or whether we will see the character at different stages of his life in this film.
In other casting news, actress Angela Bettis will be taking on the role of Verna, Leatherface's mother.
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.
