We have just discovered some additional images from the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, Leatherface. They was shared via Instagram courtesy of producer Christa Campbell and actress Vanessa Grasse. Like the last image we shared with you, this batch doesn’t do a lot to shed light on the film’s narrative. But it’s still nice to know that things are moving forward on this long-discussed project. Check them out for yourself, below!
The newly released images feature a look at some of the performers on set in Bulgaria, as well as one of the film’s stars in hair and makeup.
In a recent interview with BD, Leatherface directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo revealed that the film has secured US distribution via LionsGate, the same studio that distributed Texas Chainsaw. They also offered a brief description as to what we can expect from the film, calling it “a brutal and nihilistic road movie that we hope will surprise and delight the fans…”
Lili Taylor, James Bloor Sam Strike, Stephen Dorff, and Angela Bettis star in the upcoming prequel, which will follow Leatherface as a young man.
The script was penned by Seth M. Sherwood. The film is expected to see release later this year but an exact release date has not yet been announced. Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more on this and the latest in horror news as it breaks!
