Leatherface returning for another Chain Saw Massacre

Texas Chain Saw Massacre

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre may have been plundered for endless sequels and remakes – and sequels to remakes – but Leatherface is set to return for yet another traveller-butchering slashfest.

Twisted Pictures, who’ve been planning a new Chain Saw Massacre sequel for a while, have finally moved ahead and hired writers Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan to scratch out a script.

The pair previously worked together nearly two decades ago to pen the after-thought slasher sequel that was Jason Goes To Hell .

The plot of this seventh human-flesh wearing movie picks up 35 years after Leatherface first rampaged in Tobe Hooper’s chilling original, and sees a set of new relatives entering the fold.

“It’s 35 years later, there’s a relative going back,” producer Mark Burg said last year. “Why is he going back? I don’t want to set it in a dusty town. How do we make it more urban but keep that feel.

“There will be some relatives, some new people. There’s still the subtext of ‘are they eating these people?’ The whole idea of cannibalism, we’re bringing it back.”
