Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface continues to be an…interesting…project. French filmmaking duo Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury are taking a very different approach to the origin story of chainsaw-wielding villain Leatherface — much different from the pretty terrible Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Some of their choices have seemed a bit odd, but their latest casting decision is inarguably exciting: The Conjuring and Almost Human star Lili Taylor has joined the cast.

Another installment in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise didn’t seem very appealing, especially once we heard that the new film is a prequel. But that was only until French horror directing duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo came aboard, inspiring a healthy amount of optimism. The upcoming film is moving along quite nicely, and has just cast its most important role: that of the chainsaw-wielding psychopath, Leatherface.

There are a few certainties in this world, and the persistence of horror franchises is one of them. But every once in a while, they tend to surprise you. We reported a while back about 'Leatherface,' the upcoming prequel to last year's mediocre 'Texas Chainsaw 3D,' but now it's picked up a rather talented French directing duo, which makes this prequel pretty interesting all of a sudden.

Fans of last year's 'Texas Chainsaw' reboot/sequel will be happy to know that there is another installment on the way, but this time it's a prequel. And since it will focus on the origins of the most famous face in the franchise, it's been given the creative title of 'Leatherface.'
