We broke the information again in September that Fede Alvarez (Evil Lifeless, Don’t Breathe) is producing a brand new tackle Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Bloodbath for Legendary, and we had realized early this yr that Ryan and Andy Tohill (The Dig) can be directing the movie, written by Chris Thomas Devlin. However these plans, every week into manufacturing, have collapsed.
Deadline experiences right now that the Tohill brothers have left the challenge resulting from artistic variations. The movie, they be aware, had been “a week into production in Bulgaria.”
David Blue Garcia (Tejano) has already been introduced in to take their place, and all of the footage that had been shot by the Tohill brothers will likely be scrapped fully.
The solid contains Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Sarah Yarkin (Completely happy Dying Day 2U), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner) and Moe Dunford (Vikings).
Tobe Hooper’s 1974 basic launched a franchise that features all types of sequels, remakes and reboots. Most just lately, Leatherface served as a prequel to the unique basic.
Legendary is reportedly hoping to kick-start a brand new franchise with this one, doubtlessly (final we heard, not less than) one which’s not directly linked to the unique basic.
