New plot details emerge for ‘Leatherface’, the prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre


Bloody Disgusting have scored every scoop on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, Leatherface, and now they have some new information to share about the films plot.

We already have a good idea what the film will be about, and that it will be presented as a mystery as we are introduced to three teenagers, one of which will eventually become Leatherface, but which one?

BD’s latest exclusive reveals the following about the films storyline:

The film centers around a violent teen who one day will become Leatherface. He escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge.

We discovered last week that Stephen Dorff will be playing the Texas Ranger, twisted by a vendetta against the teenager who eventually becomes Leatherface.

Inside directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be directing the film, which is extremely good news. Angela Bettis (May) had been cast as the teenage Leatherface’s Mother.

Sam Strike and James Bloor have both been cast a teenagers who could potentially grow up to become Leatherface (the film is presented as a mystery, with three characters showing hints of becoming the famous killer).

The new film will be a prequel to Hooper’s genre defining classic, and it will feature Leatherface as a teenager in the 1970’s.

It has also been confirmed that Seth M. Sherwood is writing the horror feature.

Carl Mazzocone is producing “Leatherface,” while Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman will serve as executive producers. Campbell and Grobman fought hard to resurrect the franchise and the genre buffs are excited to get started on the next installment.

Millennium Films is financing the project and will sell international rights. Millennium executives Beth Bruckner and Christine Crow are overseeing “Leatherface” for the studio.


In this prequel to “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” a young nurse is kidnapped by four violent teens who escape from a mental hospital and take her on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind; molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
