The eighth installment of the "Texas Chainsaw" film franchise will hit theaters in 2016.
Leatherface will return...
"Texas Chainsaw" 8, which is titled "Leatherface," will be a prequel to the classic 1974 horror film, according to the project's directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury.
"In Leatherface, we're actually more connected to the Tobe Hooper's Texas Chainsaw Massacre," they said. "The main difference with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning is that we go back further in the character's origins, telling a part of its teenage years."
"Basically, we could define our movie as a naturalist, brutal and disillusioned road-movie, with a quite new narrative structure in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre universe," they continued.
"A young nurse is kidnapped by a group of violent teens who escape from a mental hospital and take her on a road trip from hell," the directors described the plot.
"Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface."
