Last year Hooked On Horror revealed that a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film was in the works with Fede Alvarez on board as producer, and unfortunately we haven't had a lot to report about it since...until now.
It appears Leatherface has found a brand new home at Netflix, as they have acquired the rights to release the film globally. According to THR-
"The streaming giant has picked up global rights to the latest installment of Texas Chainsaw Massacre from Legendary Pictures. David Blue Garcia directed the horror movie, which shot last year in Bulgaria and is produced by filmmaker Fede Alvarez and Rodolfo Sayagues via their Bad Hombre banner, as well as Kim Henkel, Ian Henkel and Pat Cassidy of Exurbia Films, and Legendary Pictures.
Leatherface's return to the big screen will follow in the footsteps of Halloween, and more recently Candyman, with a sequel to the the original 1974 film. As THR notes, the film "takes place years after the shocking events of the original, in a setting where Leatherface hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Per Netflix and Legendary, the film seeks to pick up where the Hooper and Kim Henkel film initially left off, bringing the most notorious horror franchise back to life in the same bold and provocative manner that it was first introduced to the world. Chris Thomas Devlin wrote the script."
Elsie Fisher (“Castle Rock”), Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Mark Burnham (Wrong Cops), Moe Dunford (The Dig), Olwen Fouéré (Mandy), Alice Krige (“Star Trek”), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), Nell Hudson (Victoria), Jessica Allain (The Laundromat), Sam Douglas (Snatch), William Hope (Dark Shadows), and Jolyon Coy (“War & Peace”) star.
As of yet, there is still no official release date.
