Leatherface 3D Plot Details!


The latest installment in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, Leatherface 3D, is gearing up for a Summer shoot. Lionsgate is intending to start a new franchise in the long-running slasher series (the prior remakes were released by Platinum Dunes/New Line/WB) and Bloody Disgusting has gotten their hands on some plot details.

The film, which is intended to be a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper's original 1974 genre staple, follows a girl named Heather who is taking a road trip to Texas with her friends to collect an inheritance. The twist is: Leatherface comes with the inheritance and is now Heather's property. It'll be interesting to see how they play out this story. Will Leatherface simply chase Heather and her friends around the property until they're all on meat hooks, or will Leatherface be, well, contractually bound to Heather's word? Either way, I'm curious to see how this story develops as I wasn't a huge fan of the Platinum Dunes remakes.

BD also reports that whoever lands the role of Heather will be kept on for multiple sequels, as well as the town's "Sheriff Hooper," and his trusty sidekicks "Fransworth" and "Deputy Carl Hartman."

Leatherface 3D is currently casting and set to begin filming in Shreveport, LA this June with John Luessenhop (Takers) rumored to be in the director's chair. While the film is currently being cast under The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, it has yet to be resolved which title will hit theaters in 2013.
