Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
For quite some time now we have been hearing about how the TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE prequel LEATHERFACE will be presented as a mystery of sorts about a few teenage psychopaths, one of whom grows up to be Leatherface. Today we have some new story details for you.
According to Deadline, the film will center around a violent teen who one day will become Leatherface. He escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge.
It appears as if the film is taking on an angle to where we will be trying to figure out which of these kids will become Leatherface.
Last week we brought you the news that actor Stephen Dorff (THE GATE) signed on to play
the character of Hal Hartman, who is described as a lean, mean Texas Ranger that has a vendetta against the teen boy who grows up to become Leatherface. Remember in TEXAS CHAIN SAW 3D that the corrupt Mayor's name was Burt Hartman. .
Dorff joins a cast which already includes Angela Bettis, Sam Strike and James Bloor.
LEATHERFACE is being directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury. 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 movie will be Carl Mazzocone, along with Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman as executive producers.
We will continue
to bring you more on LEATHERFACE as it unfolds.
