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. As pre-production is now underway, Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury set to direct, and a cast that already includes Angela Bettis, Stephen Dorff, Sam Strike and James Bloormore, more information continues to come in about the film.
Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman, two of the producers for the upcoming prequel recently spoke with AITH about the movie. In regards to if we will see Leatherface in action Grobman replied:
"Do you think we would make a film about Leatherface and not see him in action? It will be hardcore. Maybe the hardest core you've seen to date. These directors are sick f*cks - in a good way. "
Campbell and Grobman were responsible for TEXAS CHAIN SAW 3D. Here is what they had to say with comparing that film with LEATHERFACE:
"Some negative feedback said we didn’t go far enough with pushing the limits of horror. With our new directors, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, anyone who is familiar with their previous French horror films, Inside, Among the Living or Livid, they’ll know we’re not going to shy away from violence to make something that is PG-13. This is going to be very cool, psychologically disturbing violent horror at its best."
On if the film will be in 3D this time around:
"We have not decided if it will be 3D but it looks like the answer will probably be no."
On what the future may hold for Leatherface after this film:
"It all depends if Leatherface is loved by the fans and does well at the box office. Obviously we would love to continue the franchise as it's a dream of ours."
"A prequel focusing on teenage Leatherface, who 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."
