Not too long ago we posted that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise had a prequel in the works but no one was attached to direct. We expressed our desperate hope that the French directors of MH favorites,the masterpiece Inside and 2011’s Livide, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo would be in charge. The Halloween gods have answered our prayers and confirmed that they will be directing the prequel titled, Leatherface. This comes as excellent news not just for us, but for the franchise itself. This is a huge breathe of disgustingly-violent fresh air for a series on life support. Happy Halloween folks.
