Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Legendary Entertainment's upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre film won't hit theaters like a sledgehammer to the skull until next year but we've already got a terrifying teaser poster for Leatherface's latest bloodbath.

The poster arrives shortly after Call of Duty fans were alerted to the games upcoming "The Haunting of Verdansk" seasonal event featuring Leatherface from the 1974 horror classic THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Eagle-eyed viewers were treated to a special easter egg in the game’s new trailer and directed to the website TexasChainsaw.com where they were surprised with the debut of an exclusive tease of the iconic crazed killer Leatherface featured on the new poster.

The new film, a continuation of Tobe Hooper’s shocking 1974 seminal horror classic, marks the return of Leatherface, re-introducing one of the most iconic villains of the horror genre to a whole new generation. The film, which recently wrapped production, is directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker David Blue Garcia (Tejano) and written by Chris Devlin. Revered horror filmmaker Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) is producing with Bad Hombre’s Rodolfo Sayagues, alongside Kim Henkel (co-writer of the original 1974 film), Ian Henkel, and Pat Cassidy, who are producing via their Exurbia Films.

The starring cast is led by Golden Globe nominee Elsie Fisher, alongside Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Mark Burnham (Wrong Cops), Moe Dunford (The Dig), Olwen Fouéré (Mandy), Alice Krige (Star Trek), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), Nell Hudson (Victoria), Jessica Allain (The Laundromat), Sam Douglas (Snatch), William Hope (Dark Shadows), and Jolyon Coy (War & Peace).
