Let the screaming commence as Leatherface is set to return in a big way.

Netflix has finalized an agreement to obtain the global rights for the latest Texas Chainsaw Massacre film, according to a report on The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the source, the new movie takes place years after the shocking events of the original, in a setting where Leatherface hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Per Netflix and Legendary, the film seeks to pick up where the Hooper and Kim Henkel film initially left off.

Directed by David Blue Garcia, Texas Chainsaw Massacre will star Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), Nell Hudson (Outlander), Moe Dunford (Vikings), Mark Burnham and Olwen Fouere (Mandy). It should be noted that Burnham will play the role of Leatherface while Fouere will play Sally Hardesty.
