What do Call of Duty and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre have in common? Well, maybe not all that much, but Call of Duty fans were recently treated to an exclusive tease of the new Leatherface during the reveal trailer for the massive Halloween event “The Haunting of Verdansk” which ties into Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare. The tease doesn’t give up any details, but we do get the iconic TCM music and a look at the poster for a new film, also called The Texas Chainsaw Massacre that is set for release in 2021.
We don’t know a lot about this just yet, but the press release calls it a “continuation” of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic. The film, which recently wrapped production, is directed by David Blue Garcia (Tejano) and written by Chris Devlin. The starring cast is Elsie Fisher (Castle Rock), alongside Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Mark Burnham (Wrong Cops), Moe Dunford (The Dig), Olwen Fouéré (Mandy), Alice Krige (“Star Trek”), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), Nell Hudson (Victoria), Jessica Allain (The Laundromat), Sam Douglas (Snatch), William Hope (Dark Shadows), and Jolyon Coy (“War & Peace”).
While we eagerly await more details about the film, Call of Duty fans can take advantage of a special The Texas Chainsaw Massacre bundle, based on the original 1974 film, allowing players to terrorize each other as Leatherface. For now, check out the new poster and let us know what you think.
