Rising genre screenwriter Seth M. Sherwood has signed on to pen the script for "Leatherface," the upcoming prequel to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" in development at Millennium Films.
The film will be the eighth overall entry in the franchise (and have the same title as the third apparently). This one will serve as a prequel to the original Tobe Hooper classic and explore the origins of the horror icon in the 1970s.
A director is being sought for the project which aims to begin filming this winter. Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman and Carl Mazzacone will produce.
