In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, 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. Head inside for the full quote.
The duo told BD that Leatherface is “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.
