Poster slashes in for the Leatherface movie

September 4th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Well, here we go again…

We’re heading back to Texas to be chased with chainsaws again, folks. Yes, a new poster for the horror movie Leatherface has arrived and, while it’s a nice bit of work, it’s hard to be excited.

A prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre which will explore the origins of the horror icon in the 1970s, the story will begin with the Leatherface character in his teenage years. He resides in a mental institution until he joins a pack of fellow patients who all break out and go on the run from the authorities. The film will mark the eighth overall entry in the franchise, which currently includes, in addition to Tobe Hooper’s original, three sequels, a remake, a prequel to the remake and a modern-day “direct sequel.”

Directed by acclaimed French filmmaking duo Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside, Livid) from a script penned by Seth M. Sherwood, the film stars Stephen Dorff (Blade), Vanessa Grasse (Roboshark), Sam Strike (“EastEnders”) and Lili Taylor (The Conjuring).

Leatherface is expected for release in the U.S. sometime in 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
