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 that escape from a mental hospital, one of whom grows up to be Leatherface. Today we have some fresh casting news for you.
Actress Lili Taylor (THE CONJURING) has now officially joined the cast of LEATHERFACE. Her role is currently unknown.
In addition, we have learned that actress Vanessa Grasse has also been cast in the film also playing the role of Lizzy, the young nurse who is kidnapped by a trio of deranged teenagers.
Taylor and Grasse join the cast of Angela Bettis, Stephen Dorff, Jessica Madsen, Sam Coleman, 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.
"A young nurse is kidnapped by a group of violent teens who escape from a mental hospital and take her on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface."
