Captive Cinema gets the first look of the poster of “Leatherface”, the prequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
The poster reflects on the birth of Leatherface, the chainsaw wielding maniac from the franchise that’s one of three actors.
The film centers on a violent teen who one day will become Leatherface. He escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates (Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor, Jessica Madsen), kidnaps a young nurse (played by Vanessa Grasse) and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman (Stephen Dorff) out for revenge.
Dorff will play ‘Texas Ranger Hal Hartman’, a lawman described to us as a lean, mean Texas Ranger who has a vendetta against the teen boy who grows up to become Leatherface, while Angela Bettis was cast as Mother Sawyer. The Conjuring‘s Lili Taylor also is featured with Finn Jones.
“Leatherface” is released and distributed by Captive Cinema. Soon on 2016.
