Not satisfied with 2006’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, which saw Leatherface as a 30-year-old, producers are plotting another prequel that will focus on the infamous cannibal cook’s teen years.
Plot details are under wraps, but the tale will likely take place in the 1970s. Yes, we know what you’re about to say: the original Tobe Hooper classic took place in 1974, and Leatherface most certainly wasn’t going through puberty at the time. Try not to think about it. Thanks to all these sequels and prequels, the timeline for this franchise has become impossibly complex.
Seth M. Sherwood has been tapped to pen the script for Leatherface.
Last week, the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘s star Marilyn Burns died of natural causes at the age of 65.
