Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Olwen Fouere is Sally Hardesty in new image

In the same 2022 movie preview where they shared an image of DeWanda Wise and Chris Pratt in Jurassic World: Dominion, USA Today has also unveiled an image of cast member Olwen Fouéré in character – which is of special interest to Chainsaw fans because the character Fouéré happens to be playing is horror icon Sally Hardesty, the heroine from the 1974 original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (watch it HERE)! You can see this image of the new Sally Hardesty below.

In the ’74 film, Sally was played by Marilyn Burns. Sadly, Burns passed away in 2014.

Directed by David Blue Garcia from a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin (based on a story by producers Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues), the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre has the following official synopsis:

After nearly 50 years of hiding, Leatherface returns to terrorize a group of idealistic young friends who accidentally disrupt his carefully shielded world in a remote Texas town.

Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teenage sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), head to the remote town of Harlow, Texas to start an idealistic new business venture. But their dream soon turns into a waking nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the home of Leatherface, the deranged serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to haunt the area’s residents — including Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of his infamous 1973 massacre who’s hell-bent on seeking revenge.

In addition to the actors mentioned above, the cast of this Texas Chainsaw Massacre includes Moe Dunford, Jessica Allain, Sam Douglas, William Hope, Jolyon Coy, and Alice Krige, with Mark Burnham as Leatherface.

The new Texas Chainsaw Massacre will be released through the Netflix streaming service on February 18th. Here’s Olwen Fouéré as Sally Hardesty, seeking revenge nearly 50 years after she first encountered Leatherface:
