Fangoria recently reported that due to the positive box office gross of horror remake, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a prequel is in the works and will start filming within the next 2 years.
Andrew Form, producer of the “Chainsa” remake, spoke with Fangoria about the upcoming film:
“We thought that a lot of people who saw the movie always wondered why he uses a chainsaw,” says Form. “No one really explains it, he just does. We tried to explain a little bit in our version why he wears a mask, but here we’re really going to try to show you how the mask originated, and stuff like that.”
But they won’t go too far into Leatherface’s background. “We’re not going back into his childhood. You’re not going to see him at the prom?you’d be surprised at some of the ideas we heard. This is still a Texas Chainsaw Movie movie; it’s not going to be a family drama where you see how this kid grew up and all that. It still has to be what our last movie was, which was fun and scary and kind of a ride.”
