Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
We have known for quite some time now that the upcoming 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. It certainly has grabbed the attention of fans worldwide.
With the distribution rights now in the hands of Lionsgate and filming having wrapped last spring in Bulgaria, we bring you some fresh images from the set of LEATHERFACE courtesy of B-D.
Directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury describe their upcoming film as:
“a brutal and nihilistic road movie that we hope will surprise and delight the fans…”
The filmmaking duo previously stated about the upcoming prequel:
"We’re actually more connected to the Tobe Hooper’s TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE. The main difference with THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING is that we go back further in the character’s origins, telling a part of its teenage years. Basically, we could define our movie as a naturalist, brutal and disillusioned road-movie, with a quite new narrative structure in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre universe…"
LEATHERFACE will star Angela Bettis, Stephen Dorff, Jessica Madsen, Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor, Vanessa Grasse, Lili Taylor and Finn Jones.
Seth M. Sherwood penned the script for the prequel to the original 1974 horror classic. Millennium Films is financing the project and producing the movie is 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."
LEATHERFACE has yet to receive a release date but one should be announced very soon. We will continue to keep you updated.
