Finally have some solid news to report on the ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre” front. We already knew that the next chapter would be titled ‘Leatherface’ and it was going to be a bit of an origins piece as we meet up with Leatherface as a teenager. What we didn’t know was who was going to handle the directors duties but today that mystery has been answered.
Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will take the helm. To say that these two bring a unique style and vision to their work would be the understatement of the week. Things just got interesting for this one.
They will be working with a script from Seth M. Sherwood which as I mentioned above will tell the tale of a teenage Leatherface who escapes from an institution with a group of fellow patients and wreak havoc as they elude police.
Wasn’t particularly thrilled with the story line on this one but in the hands of these two – it’s got my attention.
Things seem to be picking up speed with this one so hang around as I think updates will be plentiful.
