Funny how the industry works. We can go forever without hearing a peep about a project and then all of a sudden the floodgates crack open and the details begin trickling in. Case in point … Leatherface 3D.
Some early plot details and other tidbits have been landed by Bloody Disgusting from an insider close to the project. Given that BD also reported that director John Luessenhop was in talks to be at the helm of this latest tango with a chainsaw a while ago, we’d say their insider is pretty much worth his or her salt.
According to Bloody Leatherface 3D, penned by Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus and Stephen Susco, with the most recent drafts by Kirsten Elms and Luessenhop, 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.

- One-Eye I remember it as being one of the better post SCREAM slasher movies. I certainly haven't watched it since then.
