The new Texas Chainsaw Massacre is now heading for its release on Netflix. The streaming giant is teaming up with Legendary Pictures, and the upcoming movie will skip theatres to release exclusively on Netflix. The slasher horror movie is a direct sequel to the original 1974 movie of the same name.
It had popularized the ghastly horror icon, Leatherface. And now, director Tobe Hooper’s original classic will get a new sequel with the production of the forthcoming slasher movie. As Netflix has exclusively secured exclusive rights, you need to catch up with the following details.
When will Texas Chainsaw Massacre be Release on Netflix?
After Enola Holmes, which was released on Netflix last year, it has once again paired up with Legendary Pictures to develop the sequel to the classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre. David Blue Garcia is the director of the project. Chris Thomas Devlin is writing the screenplay, adapting and improvising the story written together by Rodolfo Sayagues and Fede Álvarez.
The concerned sequel will disregard all other movies that are considered as a part of the franchise. It will be the ninth entry but will pick up the events directly after the original movie. Exurbia Films and Bad Hombre are the other production companies alongside Legendary Pictures. The filming for the movie was initiated in August last in Bulgaria. Legendary Pictures released an official website for the forthcoming movie in October 2020.
In August 2021, Netflix picked up the production rights, and now it will be skipping its release in the theatrical domain. While the movie is scheduled to release in 2021, Netflix has not signaled any particular release date.
Who is in the Cast of the New Texas Chainsaw Massacre?
Mark Burnham is donning the role of the iconic yet gruesome character of Leatherface. Nell Hudson will be playing Melody, and her younger sister Lila is being played by Elsie Fisher. Olwen Fouéré is playing the character of Sally Hardesty. The other cast members include Mrs. Mc by Alice Krige, Dante by Jacob Latimore, Herb by Sam Douglas, and Daniel by Moe Dunford. Jessica Allain, Sarah Yarkin, William Hope, and Jolyon Coy, are also a part of the cast.
What is the Plot of the Forthcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre?
The original Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequences are being followed up in the coming sequel. Leatherface, ‘the face of madness,’ is returning once again. He is a part of the cannibalistic family and has a completely deformed face. The events will take place several years after the ghastly occurring in the original movie.
According to the plot reveal, it will continue from the juncture in which we had previously left off Hooper and Kim Henkel. Hence, it is likely to be as bold and provocative as the original 1974 movie.
While the movie will release this year, Netflix has not yet assigned an official premiere date to the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Meanwhile, you can read and watch more Leatherface and catch up with the original movie to keep your memories afresh for the forthcoming release.
