After months of waiting and waiting and waiting, fans will finally get to see the long-awaited prequel to the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre this fall.
Producer Christa Campbell has announced that Lionsgate, who scored the U.S. rights to the film, will be released in October. She made the announcement on her Twitter page.
The film was shot in 2016 in Bulgaria and stars Stephen Dorff as Texas Ranger Hal Hartman, a psychotic lawman who is tracking down four mental asylum escapees who have kidnapped one of the nurses to go on the road trip from Hell. Things will come to a head when it is revealed that one of the four escapees will become the future human-mask wearing, chainsaw-wielding maniac who is the icon of the TCM series.
Lili Taylor, Angela Bettis, Sam Strike, James Bloor, Vanessa Grasse, Finn Jones, and Sam Coleman co-star in the film. The duo of Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury directed the film based on a script by Seth M. Sherwood.
So look out for Leatherface this October from Lionsgate and Millennium Films.
