Original Leatherface Returns for ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D’!

Bloody Disgusting has learned exclusively that Gunnar Hansen – best known as Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre – has landed some sort of role in Lionsgate’s latest incarnation.

While we’re being told he is NOT recurring his role as the chainsaw wielding slasher, we hear he does have some sort of potential “cameo.” The only thing confirmed is that he’ll be in the movie.

In The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, arriving in theaters October 5, 2012, Tania Raymonde will play Nikki, a small-town girl with an attitude who is the best friend of Heather (Alexandra Daddario), who travels to small-town Texas to collect her inheritance, which includes her deranged cousin Leatherface. Bill Moseley also stars.
