A new Texas Chainsaw Massacre was on the way, as confirmed by The Wrap.
They learned who is behind the screenplay: Black List scribe Seth M. Sherwood, who will be penning the teenage years of Leatherface.
The new incarnation will take place before Tobe Hooper’s 1974 cult classic, making it a massive franchise prequel.
Millennium Films is behind the prequel, with Lionsgate in talks to distribute.
Production could start as soon as this winter, says the site, with a director expected to sign on in the coming weeks.
