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.'
