Leatherface Rated R for Bloody Violence



A prequel to the original classic, Leatherface is soon headed our way courtesy of directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside), and though we don’t yet have a trailer or even a date, we can now at least confirm that the film will have an R rating attached to it. Of course, that was pretty much a given already.

The prequel has been Rated R “for strong bloody violence, disturbing images, language and some sexuality/nudity.”

Vanessa Grasse stars as Lizzy, a young nurse at a mental hospital who’s kidnapped by a group of violent teenagers and taken on a road trip from hell. Lili Taylor portrays Verna Sawyer; Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, and James Bloor star as the potential Leatherfaces; and Stephen Dorff stars as a lean, mean Texas Ranger who has a vendetta against the teen boy who grows up to become Leatherface.

The cast also includes Nicole Andrews, Julian Kostov, Jessica Madsen, and Lorina Kamburova. Leatherface was written by up-and-coming genre scribe Seth M. Sherwood.

Lionsgate has picked up distribution rights here in the States. No word on a release date yet, but we’ll keep an eye on things for you. Millennium Films, which was behind the 2013 Texas Chainsaw 3D, is once again producing with Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman, and Carl Mazzacone for Lionsgate.

In this prequel to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a young nurse is kidnapped by a group of violent teens who escape from a mental hospital and take her on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface.
