Leatherface’s New Film Gets Official Title, R-Rating

by Thomas Tuna

Well, what’s old is new again (and vice versa). The direct follow-up to the iconic 1974 The Texas Chain Saw Massacre reportedly has a very familiar title. And an expected film rating.

The movie–expected to hit theaters sometime later this year–is entitled simply Texas Chainsaw Massacre, according to a report on wegotthiscovered.com, and the MPAA has slapped it with an R-rating for “strong bloody horror violence, gore and language.” Guess that just about covers it.

The original classic followed a group of friends traveling across Texas (obviously) who stumble across the Sawyer homestead, where they encounter the deadly Leatherface. The rest is horror movie history.

This ninth entry in the Massacre franchise comes from director David Blue Garcia and producer Fede Alvarez, with a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin. The Legendary Entertainment movie deals with two sisters from San Francisco who travel to (you guessed it) Texas on a business trip and run into Old Man Leatherface (Mark Burnham).

The rest of the ensemble cast includes Elsie Fisher, Sarah Yarkin, Moe Dunford, Alice Krige, Jacob Latimore, Nell Hudson, Jessica Allain, Sam Douglas, William Hope, Jolyon Coy and Olwen Fouere.
