The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Prequel (Stephen Dorff in Talks)

Post by WyldeMan on 3/28/2015, 10:01 am

Casting for the Texas Chain Saw Massacre prequel is revving up.

We exclusively broke the news back on Halloween that Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the duo behind the slasher masterpiece Inside (À l’intérieur), as well as Livide and the forthcoming Among the Living, will be helming Leatherface for Millienum and Lionsgate.

Now, we have received exclusive word that the great Stephen Dorff (Immortals, Blade, Judgment Night) is in talks to play ‘Texas Ranger Hal Hartman’ in the prequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Dorff’s character is described to us as a lean, mean Texas Ranger who has a vendetta against the teen boy who grows up to become Leatherface.


We also learned that the TCM prequel is presented as a mystery of sorts about three teenage psychopaths, one of whom grows up to be Leatherface. Sam Strike was cast as ‘Jackson’, with James Bloor starring as ‘Ike’, a budding young maniac of his. There’s still a third to be cast, and only one will eventually become Leatherface.

Also, we at Bloody Disgusting exclusively reported that Angela Bettis was cast as Mother Sawyer in the film that begins shooting on May 18th.

Leatherface is being produced by Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman, alongside Carl Mazzocone after they successfully resurrected the franchise with the 2013 Texas Chainsaw 3D. Les Weldon is also a producer on the project, which is being executive produced by Millennium’s Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson, Mark Gill and Beth Bruckner O’Brien.

Inside is a brutal French horror film, so this could turn out well.

I've said time and again that I'm a big fan of Stephen's and have been since I was a kid, so I'm always in favor of him getting higher profile work. Though I wish he would do something like True Detective.
