We came across this little seemingly insignificant postage stamp sized bit of “teaser art” weeks ago and didn’t think much of it because, well, you’ll see. Apparently now its news so here you go.
Directed by John Luessenhop and penned by Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus and Stephen Susco, with the most recent drafts by Kirsten Elms and Luessenhop, Leatherface 3D is a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 film. In it we follow the lead character, Heather, who, along with her friends, travels to Texas in order to collect an inheritance. The spin? Said inheritance comes with a cousin who goes by the name of Leatherface. That’s right, the character of Heather will now own one of the sickest mass murderers of the 20th century. Not sure how that’s all going to play out or even if that is the direction the plot will stay in, but we shall see.
It should also be noted that whoever lands the lead role of “Heather” will be locked in for multiple sequels, along with the town’s “Sheriff Hooper” and his trusty sidekicks, “Farnsworth” and “Deputy Carl Hartman.”
The film is casting right now for a June shoot in Shreveport, Louisiana under the title Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. More soon.
