Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the French mad-minds behind Inside, have been tasked with bringing the latest story in Leatherface’s legacy to life, which was written by Seth M. Sherwood. In Leatherface, Vanessa Grasse stars as Lizzy, a young nurse at a mental hospital who’s kidnapped by a group of violent teenagers and taken on a road trip from hell. While we’ve seen just about every possible storyline for the chainsaw-wielding killer, Maury and Bustillo’s take is quite a bit different in that it’s a story about a group of deranged kids with one of them eventually growing up to be the iconic slasher.
With this kind of talent involved and a unique spin on a classic franchise, it’s exciting to see what the future holds for Leatherface and his victims. This could be the jumping off point for a whole new line of Texas Chainsaw Massacre films, so there’s certainly a lot riding on its success. No pressure, guys. Below is some early art for the film that does the ol’ reflecting what you really are trick.
In this prequel to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, 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.
It stars Stephen Dorff, Lili Taylor, Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor, Nicole Andrews, Julian Kostov, Jessica Madsen, and Lorina Kamburova.
