I just posted our exclusive interview with Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who just saw their Goonies/Stand By Me-esque slasher Among the Living released in the UK.
Another film Among the Living aesthetically feels like is Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, which is ironic being that the French filmmaking duo are currently in post-production on its prequel, Leatherface.
While they couldn’t go into much detail on the film, which stars Stephen Dorff, Sam Strike, and James Bloor, they did say, “It’s a brutal and nihilistic road movie that we hope will surprise and delight the fans…”
They also revealed that Lionsgate has picked up distribution rights here in the States, which isn’t all that shocking considering they also released Texas Chainsaw 3D back in January of 2013.
The film centers around a violent teen who one day will become Leatherface. He escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates (Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor, Jessica Madsen), kidnaps a young nurse (played by Vanessa Grasse) and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman (Stephen Dorff) out for revenge.
