Netflix has acquired the Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel from Legendary Pictures. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming giant has bought exclusive distribution rights to the sequel of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The upcoming is directed by David Blue Garcia and it will pick the story up right where the Tobe Hopper‘s 1974 classic film left off, this will be the second time Legendary and Netflix are teaming after the action-mystery film Enola Holmes.
The sequel of the acclaimed film stars Elsie Fisher, Sarah Yarkin, Jacob Latimore, and Moe Dunford, and it will set years after the events of the first film. The plot of the film has not been revealed yet, but we all hope that the sequel is as gory as the original film.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is no doubt a very important part of the slasher film genre, spawning seven sequels, a series of comics, and a gimmick for a rock band. The original film has been a very successful and very integral part of the slasher film genre and it has even been credited with a very important trope to slasher and that is the personification of the killers as faceless figures.
The upcoming sequel of the film was shot in Bulgaria, by the director Blue Garcia with a script by Chris Thomas Devlin. No release date for the film has yet been announced.
