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.
Today Legendary has launched an official website for the upcoming film. On the website you’ll find some early art for the movie, which comes with the promise that “the face of madness” will return in 2021.
David Blue Garcia is directing the movie, written by Chris Thomas Devlin.
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.
