While I was surfing the web a few months ago, I came across some information on a prequel under production for 'Leatherface'. I went a little further this time for you guys, in hopes to find something different and new. I know that most horror fans are a lover of Leatherface and the whole Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies up to the year 2013. I personally love this character, from his creepy face stitching to that rumbling chainsaw.
Here are some things I managed to scrape up for you all:
So far we have been given two 'movie covers'
I have noticed that both covers do have a child on it, my questions are why is there a child instead of the teen who escaped? Do we see flasbacks of a childhood that lead to the mental institution, causing the escape and gore? I have no idea.
So here’s the synopsis for Leatherface; " a young nurse is kidnapped by a group of violent teens, teens of which have escaped from a mental hospital. They take her on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tradgety and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we all now call Leatherface."
This prequel is said to follow three teenage psychopaths. One of whom grows up to be Leatherface!
Here's a photo leaked from the set:
Although there is not an official release date as of now, they did state that 2017 will be the year this movie will hit the screens, however a year goes quick and we have only been given a couple photo's for pleasure. I know in 2016 they mentioned that January 2nd would have been the intial release date, but obviously that has changed because I haven't found jack shit about it!
Production & Crew:
The only bit of information I have to give regarding this topic are as followed:
DIRECTED BY: Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo
For those who do not know anything about these two. Julien and Alexandre are a French duo who are known for horror movies such as 'Inside', 'Among the Living' and 'Livid'. If you haven't seen these, you should. 'Inside' (original title: 'À l’intérieur') has also won awards at the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards, Sitges and Screamfest.
WRITTEN BY: Seth M. Sherwood
What else do we know:
It is being filmed in Bulgaria and is expected to serve as an origin story that follows Leatherface’s early years in the 1970s.
Stephen Dorff will play the Texas Ranger - Hal Hartman, who has vendetta against the teen boy who grows up to become Leatherface.
Angela Bettis is said to play Verna, the mother of the Sawyer family.
Jessica Madsen plays the fourth and final escaped patient.
Sam Coleman plays "Bud" another one of the teens that escaped.
James Bloor is also said to be playing Leatherface as well.
Sam Strike (EastEnders) will play Jackson, another Leatherface candidate.
We will also see Lili Taylor, Vanessa Grasse, Nicole Andrews, Julian Kostov, and Lorina Kamburova.
Sadly, there are no teasers or official trailers out yet for this movie. All trailers that do state 'Leatherface 2017' throughout the web are either fan made or clips taken from previous movies combined together.
Here are a few more photo's for your enjoyment!
So guys, what do you think? Do you have any ideas on what you think will happen, other than the obvious? Do you know of any other pieces of information? Do you have any more leaked photos? I'm full of questions.
