So a horror series has an iconic original, several sequels of varying quality, then a reboot, then an origin story, then a fangled 3D effort. What do you do after that? Why of course, you go back and do another prequel, obviously! That’s what’s happening with the TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE franchise. But that’s info we’ve known for a few months now. What’s new to the table is that that film now has a director, or directors, with Bloody-Disgusting breaking the news that INSIDE’s Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be helming this next chapter in the series.
Dubbed LEATHERFACE, the film will be a prequel that focuses on the star of the series during his teenage years in a mental institution. From there, he’ll become part of a pack of patients who break out and go on the run from the authorities.
No release date is known for LEATHERFACE at this stage, but expect more on this as it develops.
