Lionsgate and Millennium Tease The Origin Of ‘Leatherface’

Lionsgate and Millennium Films released the first poster for Leatherface Friday morning. This film is the origin story of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Prequel about teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge.

Leatherface is directed by Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, and stars Stephen Dorff, Vanessa Grasse, Sam Strike, and Lili Taylor.


The film is scheduled for release in 2016.
