Netflix will be releasing a sequel to the cult horror classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre with Legendary Entertainment, after acquiring the global rights to the franchise. The sequel will exclusively premiere on Netflix and will skip a theatrical release.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the slasher sequel is directed by David Blue Garcia and was shot in Bulgaria in the mid-2020s, wrapping up production in March 2021. The movie stars Elsie Fisher (Eight Grace), Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), and Moe Dunford (Vikings). 

The sequel’s plot will continue from the events of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 film Texas Chainsaw Massacre, years after the iconic Leatherface disappeared. Slasher serial killer Leatherface is a member of a family of cannibals with a deformed face covered by the skin of his victims. The character has turned into a pop culture icon, alongside characters like Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees.

Netflix and Legendary Entertainment’s latest project together was Enola Holmes, which starred Millie Bobby Brown as the sleuthing sister of Detective Sherlock Holmes, played by Henry Cavill.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise spans eight films with the latest being Leatherface, which was released in 2017. – Patrick Miguel/Rappler.com
