The first official image from directing duo of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s upcoming film Leatherface has been revealed via Bloody-Distgusting. Leatherface, the prequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic horror film Texas Chainsaw Massacre, stars Lili Taylor (The Conjuring), Stephen Dorff (Blade), Nicole Andrews, Julian Kostov (London Has Fallen), Angela Bettis (Dig), James Bloor (North), Jessica Madsen (Breathless) and EastEnders’ Sam Strike as Jackson, young Leatherface.
The film fallows Jackson, a violent young man, as he escapes a mental hospital along with three other patients. The group kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on the road trip from hell. During their run for freedom they are pursued by a Texas Ranger, who is just as crazy as they are; and the Ranger is Hell bent on getting revenge.
