Casting News: Spectre adds Stephanie Sigman & Sam Strike to play Leatherface

Stephanie Sigman Sam Strike

Sam Mendes is currently filming SPECTRE with stars Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz Monica Belluci and Dave Bautista, but apparently the director still had one more role left to cast. It's been announced that MISS BALA and PIONEER actress Stephanie Sigman has joined the 24th Bond movie. Sigman will be playing Estrella in the movie, but unfortunately there aren't any other details about her character. SPECTRE will be in theaters on November 6, 2015.

In other casting news, The Wrap has learned that directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo may have found their Leatherface for their TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE prequel in the form of EastEnders star Sam Strike. Sources have told The Wrap the actor is in talks to play Jackson, the teenager who grows up to become Leatherface. Although best known for his role on the long-running British soap opera, Strike also starred in the BBC series M.I. High and guest starred on the comedy series Give Out Girls.

LEATHERFACE doesn't have a release date yet, but it will likely open later this year (perhaps around Halloween?) or sometime in 2016.
