I can’t wait for everyone to see more of what we’re doing.” Darren Campion, Executive Producer at Sumo Nottingham adds “We’re incredibly excited to finally reveal what we’ve been working on here at Sumo Nottingham. To be the first to truly bring the world of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre to life was an opportunity that could not be passed.
