John Luessenhop To Revive LEATHERFACE 3D

Takers director to helm Lionsgate's new franchise reboot of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

On the back of a big financial success with a glossy remake of Tobe Hooper's classic horror The Texas Chainsaw Massacre back in 2003 (almost $100 million profit!), which was then followed up by a tamer prequel in 2006, new rights holder and Saw franchise producer Mark Burg has set his sits on the disfigured Leatherface as being the box office figurehead of another series reboot. Having picked up the rights to the character late last year at Lionsgate, Bloody Disgusting say that they have now hired John Lussenhop to direct Leatherface 3D, a new reboot to the franchise that will pick up some 35 years after the original 1974 low-budget horror. Presumably it's a new Leatherface? Lussenhop was the director of the 2010 thriller Takers and he will work on a script worked over by Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus and Stephen Susco. Michael Bay's schlock horror remake company Platinum Dunes won't have anything to do with this movie and neither will New Line who produced the two movies of the last decade. Bringing 3D to the table will at least give this new entry into this very tired horror franchise a new jolt of life and you can't deny the title is pretty cool. Leatherface 3D? Yeah I would see it...
