Christa Campbell, one half of Campbell Grobman Films, shared a new look at Leatherface, the prequel to Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre that’s to be released by Lionsgate.
What you’ll see below is a behind-the-scenes shot of actress Jessica Madsen in a BBQ restaurant, looking a bit angered and determined. In the film, directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the duo behind the slasher masterpiece Inside (À l’intérieur), as well as Livide and Among the Living, Madsen plays one of four inmates (Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor) who escape from a metal hospital. One of them becomes the title character and iconic slasher. The quartet kidnapa a young nurse (played by Vanessa Grasse) and take her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman (Stephen Dorff) out for revenge.
Angela Bettis was cast as Mother Sawyer. The Conjuring‘s Lili Taylor also is featured.
When we talked with the filmmakers, they told us the film is “a brutal and nihilistic road movie that we hope will surprise and delight the fans…”
