Stephen Dorff

Last month brought news that British television actor Sam Strike had landed the title role in Leatherface, the origin story of the chainsaw wielding killer from the Texas Chanisaw Massacre horror franchise. And now Deadline brings word that Public Enemies and Somewhere star Stephen Dorff will be taking another lead role in the film, and thankfully, details on his character give us an idea of what we can expect from the story. In the film the young man who will become Leatherface escapes from a mental hospital with three other patients, taking a nurse from the hospital with them as a hostage for a deadly road trip. Read on!

In pursuit of the escaped patients will be Dorff as a deranged lawman who is out for some kind of revenge. Seems like there's a lot of unhinged characters here that should make for quite a wild prequel. Where is Leatherface going? Is he trying to get back to his family? Or does he stumble upon a group of insane people who take him in and exacerbate his mental instability? Directing the film will be French cult favorite filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo with a script from up and coming writer Seth M. Sherwood. Carl Mazzocone, Christa Campbell and Lati Grobman are producing again after the Texas Chainsaw resurrection in 2013. We're not expecting much, but maybe fans will find something to like?

I like Stephen Dorff. Unfortunately when I see or hear his name anymore, all I can think of is how great electronic cigarettes are.
