Dimension Films producing ‘Halloween: The Next Chapter’

19 August 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Long after the apparent death of Halloween 3D, it looks like the killer in the William Shatner mask, Michael Myers, will is will return. Bloody Disgusting and First Showing report Dimension Films and producer of the franchise since Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Malek Akkad, are reviving the series with Halloween: The Next Chapter.

Little is known about the project and the title is very vague, leaving us with more questions than answers. Schmoeville points out that Scout Taylor-Compton, the star of Rob Zombie’s Halloween and its sequel, said she was coming back, but that was several months ago and there has been no official word on it since.

Halloween has remained one of horror’s most iconic franchises since John Carpenter’s 1978 classic. Michael Myers was last seen in Rob Zombie’s surreal 2009 film, Halloween II. It is unclear if The Next Chapter is the sequel to that, »

Our First Times: The Lost Boys

19 August 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Every once in a while, the Icons of Fright staff all band together to write what we like to call “Icons Firsts”, in which we all write about the first times we all experienced watching classic horror films (Halloween, A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Evil Dead). When it’s just one of us writing about the first viewing experience, it typically falls into the “Our First Times” articles (My Texas Chainsaw Massacre article, Natty’s Re-animator article), as a way to separate whether it’s just one person or the whole gang. Easy enough, right? Well this time, it’s just me, and I figured I’d write about the experience of viewing one of my favorite movies of all time, 1987′s vampire classic, The Lost Boys. So grab your maggot-filled Chinese food, sunglasses and wooden stakes, it’s Our First Times: The Lost Boys time!

Brace Yourself for a Teenage Leatherface in the 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Prequel

15 August 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Being a teenager isn't usually all it's cracked up to be, especially if you're a serial killer in the making. It definitely didn't get better for the chainsaw-wielding maniac at the center of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" franchise, and we'll find out why in an upcoming prequel, appropriately titled "Leatherface."

What kind of unspeakable horrors happened in this chubby cannibal's childhood home? We can only picture what his parents must have packed in his lunchbox, and the sort of devastating social interactions that would have occurred in the cafeteria every day. We've gotten a glimpse of Leatherface's unmasked face before, and it was not pleasant; just imagine adding pimples to the mix. Then again, chances are slim 'lil Leatherface was even allowed to go to school.

Newcomer Seth M. Sherwood is writing the script, which is described as "an origin story that follows Leatherface's early years in the 1970s." 2013's »

‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Gets a Prequel with ‘Leatherface’ Because Even Cannibals Have Backstories

14 August 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We all know Leatherface, the human flesh-masked villain of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, but do any of us really know him, like on a personal level? Maybe he had hopes and dreams and plans for his future before he started capturing unsuspecting tourists, impaling them on meat hooks and turning them into prize-winning chili. No judgment; maybe his aspirations and goals were actually to become the town’s most feared and respected cannibal chef — if so, he definitely succeeded. But a new film is finally going to reveal exactly what went on in the days before The Texas Chainsaw Massacre taught audiences a thing or two about the phrase “stranger danger.” Simply and effectively titled Leatherface, according to The Wrap this prequel is an origin story for one of the horror genre’s most iconic faces (covered in other faces, so many terrible faces) set in the 1970s. At this point, the »

New Texas Chainsaw Movie Will Be a Prequel Called Leatherface

14 August 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Wrap is reporting that Millennium Films is developing a Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel called Leatherface. They've hired newcomer Seth M. Sherwood to write the script for the film. The story will explore the 1970s origins of the horror icon. 

I'm a huge fan of the original movie. It scared the living shit out of me when I first saw it. I had never seen anything like it at the time. It was the first real hardcore horror film that I watched when I was growing up. I've come to appreciate that movie more and more over the years.

There have a been a lot of sequels and remakes of Texas Chainsaw over the years, but nothing has ever lived up to the original movie. Every time I see a new Leatherface movie, I can't help but hope that it will decent. It never really is, though. They have all been mediocre. »

'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Getting Rebooted Again For 'Leatherface'

14 August 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ed Gein was a real, American cannibal killer who wore people's skin. In 1974, this manifested as a movie called The Texas Chainsaw Massacre that to this day is a great movie that I'm sure all you horror fans have watched over and over. 

But that's the only one I can heartily recommend to everyday movie people. Director Tobe Hooper returned for 1986's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, but had no part in 1990s Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 or 1994's Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

Then, Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes got their hands on the franchise and rebooted in 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre which lead into 2006's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (directed by Tmnt director Jonathan Liebsman) and 2013's Texas Chainsaw 3D.

Now it's Millennium Films' turn to take a shot at this franchise, and they've hired up-and-coming writer Seth M. Sherwood to »

‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Origins Film ‘Leatherface’ Gets a Writer

14 August 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Horror movies get remembered, legends never die. They just get endlessly rebooted instead. Take Leatherface, the current horror icon du jour whose mythos has been deemed ripe for recalibration; Hollywood has been tinkering with the character since the aughts, blundering through Texas Chainsaw Massacre remakes before shifting him from an Ed Gein surrogate to a misunderstood anti hero in 2013′s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Meanwhile, Lionsgate made rumblings just last week about hunting down a scribe to put pen to paper on yet another possible update to his backstory.

Turns out those rumblings were pretty serious. Flash forward to today, and now it sounds like the newly gestating film not only has a screenwriter, but it ...

The horror started in 1974 with Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. A few sequels later, that franchise faded, and in 2003 Platinum Dunes picked it up. They made two films, but the screams faded once more. In 2013 the franchise was resurrected one more time with Texas Chainsaw 3D. The film was a financial […]

Texas Chainsaw Prequel Titled Leatherface, Now Has A Writer

14 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this month, we brought you word that Texas Chainsaw‘s next installment might not be a direct sequel to 2013′s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Instead, Millenium Films was said to be mulling over a prequel centering on a teenage Leatherface. At the time, a writer was said to be in talks to pen a script for the project. Now, for better or worse, it’s been confirmed that the prequel, simply titled Leatherface, is up next for the franchise and will feature a script from Seth M. Sherwood.

Little is known with regard to the specifics of the plot, though Leatherface is said to be a ’70s-set origin story which will take place before Tobe Hooper’s original film. As such, it’s unlikely that Texas Chainsaw 3D star Alexandra Daddario, originally expected to become the series’ new lead actress after that film, will be returning outside of a possible cameo appearance. »

'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Prequel to Focus on a Teen 'Leatherface'

14 August 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Shortly after the latest installment of Texas Chainsaw Massacre arrived in theaters in 2013, there were already rumblings about a sequel percolating from Millennium Films. However, the news might have been a bit premature since the holders of the rights to Leatherface and his creepy Sawyer family hadn't yet figured out how to proceed with the franchise. But now it appears plans are coming together for a follow-up, but rather than being a sequel to Texas Chainsaw 3D, the film is called Leatherface and will take place before the original 1974 classic horror film, following the teenage years of the chainsaw-wielding killer in the 70s. The Wrap reports an up-and-coming writer named Seth M. Sherwood will write the origin story of Leatherface with Texas Chainsaw 3D producer Carl Mazzocone back in the same capacity. Sherwood has seen some development activity around Hollywood, including a supernatural thriller set up at Blumhouse Productions that »

Leatherface, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, has found a writer

Just when you thought there was not a chance of seeing a franchise get destroyed any further, we now have an official title and a screenwriter for the next installment/reboot of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Following last year's lackluster Texas Chainsaw 3D starring the gorgeous Alexandra Daddario, a prequel has been developed that will be simply titled Leatherface. Like 2006's prequel/sequel The Beginning, Leatherface will go back to the origins of the chainsaw wielding psychopath with a »

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prequel Gets a New Title and Writer

14 August 2014 4:27 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Texas Chainsaw 3D was met with a mostly negative response when it opened early last year, but it did still manage to more than double its $20 million budget. Millennium Films are now going to take another stab at relaunching the franchise, this time with a prequel set before Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 film.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is rightly considered a horror classic, so how well another movie closely tied to the original will be received by longtime fans remains to be seen.

Plot details are sparse right now, but Leatherface (as it is currently being called) will take place in the 1970s and will serve as an origin story of sorts as we learn more about the iconic killer’s teenage years.

Seth M. Sherwood is writing the Texas Chainsaw prequel, and a director is expected to be announced within the next few weeks. Sherwood has a number of horror »

14 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It seems that up-and-coming  horror scribe Seth M. Sherwood has been penned to write an aptly named prequel, Leatherface to the 1974 horror classic that was Texas Chainsaw Massacre for Millenium Films. who are keen on rebooting the franchise. Sherwood, though relatively unknown has had his name stirring amongst the horror genre community, with him  being potentially linked to multiple projects.

For now, there’s no word as to the synopsis, though it will most likely follow the early years of Leatherface and how he came to be one of the most notable faces of horror.
