‘Texas Chainsaw’ Reboot Adds Directors

Like good old fashioned barbecue, there’s plenty of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to go around and for Legendary Entertainment’s reboot of the series the film now has not one, but two directors with brothers Ryan and Andy Tohill said in an article on Variety.

With Chris Thomas Devlin penning the script, the reboot is being produced by Fede Alvarez (2013’s Evil Dead remake), although no details regarding the plot have been released.

The Tohill brothers made their first directorial film with The Dig which premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival to positive reviews.

As a series, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre began in 1974 with director Tobe Hooper’s documentary-style macabre masterpiece starring Gunnar Hansen as the main antagonist called Leatherface. This was followed by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, the 2003 remake of the same title followed by The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Texas Chainsaw 3D and the latest feature simply titled Leatherface that was a prequel to the whole series. There were many directions the series took over the years, hopefully the newest film will add something deeper to the franchise than what has come before.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
