Back last year it was reported that Fede Alvarez would be producing a new take on Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre for Legendary.
Earier this year it was reported that Ryan and Andy Tohill would be directing the film, written by Chris Thomas Devlin. But those plans, a week into production, have collapsed.
Deadline reports today that the Tohill brothers have left the project due to creative differences just one week into production in Bulgaria.
David Blue Garcia has already been brought in to take their place, and all the footage that had been shot by the Tohill brothers will be scrapped entirely.
The cast includes Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner) and Moe Dunford (Vikings).
Legendary is reportedly hoping to kick-start a new franchise with this latest instalment.
The film returns to the roots of the Hooper and Kim Henkel creation that was considered one of the scariest films of its era, even though most of the splatter was implied and not shown.
The present-day film brings Leatherface back to terrifying life for a new generation.
