TEXAS CHAINSAW Getting New Films & TV Series at Entertainment/Legendary?

Posted on: September 1st, 2018

Last year, Lionsgate attempted to reinvigorate the enduring-yet-faltering Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise with a prequel; Leatherface was an origin story for horror fans’ favorite chainsaw wielding crossdresser. The film received tepid reviews, no doubt contributing to the studio’s decision to consider selling the rights to TCM (or at least a major stake in them) to Entertainment/Legendary Pictures

Now, the wheels may be turning for more cannibalistic chaos, as Bloody Disgusting is reporting Legendary wants to move forward with more feature films and perhaps even a Texas Chainsaw Massacre TV series! For the uninitiated, Legendary is the home of Kong: Skull Island and the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters, making them a major force in today’s cinematic landscape. With some committed creative minds and genuine enthusiasm, this could the shot in the arm TCM needs in order to remain relevant in the 21st Century.

If you missed Leatherface in 2017, you can check out the trailer and synopsis below.

A teenage Leatherface escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnapping a young nurse and taking her on a road trip from hell, while being pursued by a lawman out for revenge.
