We have learned a lot about the new version of Legendary. The massacre in Texas movie this week, with the producer Fede Alvarez revealing to Bloody Disgusting’s Boo Crew podcast that it is actually a sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original classic, centered on “old Leatherface.”
Also, we inform that Sally Hardesty will return with Olwen Fouéré (Mandy) Playing the character we haven’t seen since Marilyn Burns played her way in 1974.
But who plays Leatherface, you ask? Bloody Disgusting has been able to confirm that Mark Burnham (Bad life) will be the last actor to put on the leather mask and wield the chainsaw.
Leatherface was originally played by the late Gunnar hansen, with various actors taking on the role of the many sequels, reboots, and follow-ups. Bill johnson played Leatherface on Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2; RA Mihailoff in Texas Massacre III; Robert Jacks in The next generation; Andrew Bryniarski in the 2003 remake and its subsequent prequel; Dan yeager in Texas Chainsaw 3D; other Sam strike in 2017 Leatherface.
David Blue Garcia (Texan) directed the Legendary film, which was written by Chris Thomas Devlin and filmed last year. Stay tuned for more as we learn it.
