The Next TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE Sequel Will Be Produced By EVIL DEAD Reboot Director Fede Álvarez
About a year ago it was reported that Legendary Entertainment was looking to develop some new films based on Tobe Hooper‘s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. It was also said they were developing a TV series as well.
Well, we have a new update from Bloody-Disgusting to share with you. Legendary has officially closed the deal and they are bringing Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe director Fede Álvarez on board to produce. As of right now, there are no plans for him to direct it. Kim Henkel, the writer and producer of the original film, is also producing.
According to the report, the plan for the film is to “make a direct sequel to Hooper’s ’74 film, similar to what Blumhouse and Universal have done with Halloween.” It worked for Halloween, so it could work for Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
There are no details on how exactly the story will play out, but it’s sure to involve Leatherface running around with a chainsaw mutilating teenagers. Unfortunately,Texas Chain Saw Massacre‘s Final Girl, Marilyn Burns, passed away in 2014. It would be cool if the creative team could find a way to continue her story and legacy if this is the direction that they’re taking. But, as the report mentions, the movie could just focus on the current state of the Sawyer family.
