‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’: Official Website and PosterBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies
It looks like we are going to get a newer new rebooted sequel. Just like Halloween, and H20, and the new sequel, it seems Leatherface is going to get the same treatment. So forget everything including the direct sequels that now don’t count and just focus on the new movie. I am not a fan of this new idea of destroying all the lore to partial reboot a franchise. Reboot the whole thing or none at all. Well except for TCM, The New Generation. I still have no idea what that movie is about. I apparently have not taken the proper amount of drugs to make sense of that installment. Apparently, the new fad is geriatric killers.
For the last year or so we knew that a modern take on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was in the works from producer Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe). Today Legendary launched an official website for the 2021 film. On the official website, you’ll discover some early art for the movie, which comes with the promise that “the face of madness” will return in 2021. Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic launched a franchise that includes all kinds of sequels, remakes, and reboots. Most recently, Leatherface served as a prequel to the original classic, so we don’t know for sure if this one will be thrown out with the rest of the established Chainsaw canon.
On the site, you can enter your e-mail address to receive a motion poster and a code redeemable for an exclusive Calling Card in Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare. Leatherface joins Call of Duty tomorrow with the “Haunting of Verdansk” update, which is a nice perk.
David Blue Garcia (Tejano) is directing the movie, written by Chris Thomas Devlin. According to the website “The new film, a continuation of Tobe Hooper’s shocking 1974 seminal horror classic, marks the return of Leatherface, re-introducing one of the most iconic villains of the horror genre to a whole new generation.”
The cast is led by Elsie Fisher (“Castle Rock”) alongside 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”).
