In an extremely obvious case of hit-whoring, inside you’ll find a super tiny Cannes sales poster for Leatherface 3D, which is to be directed by John Luessenhop this coming June in Shreveport, Louisiana.
As previously reported, the film is being sold internationally as Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, although I’m pretty sure that Lionsgate does NOT own the rights to use that name here in the States.
Penned by Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus and Stephen Susco, with the most recent drafts by Kirsten Elms and Luessenhop, the seventh incarnation is a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 film that follows the lead character, Heather, who along with her friends, travel to Texas in order to collect an inheritance. The spin? What would you do if you found out your cousin was Leatherface, and he was now YOURS?
Multiple sequels are planned.
