Texas Chainsaw Massacre Leatherface

The continuity of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise is a mess, and that’s not likely to change with the next entry. The most recent film, 2017’s Leatherface, was a prequel to the original film and in the same continuity as that and 2013’s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Both Texas Chainsaw and Leatherface were produced by Campbell Grobman Films/Millennium Films and those companies have lost the rights to the franchise. When asked on Twitter about a sequel to Leatherface, Christa Campbell wrote:

It’s possible another studio could pick things up and produce a continuation of what’s already established, but it’s more likely that they will start over fresh. The series has a history of starting over with each new studio. The first two films are connected, but the third (from New Line Cinema) and fourth (Columbia Pictures) are both quasi-reboots, then there’s Platinum Dunes’ remake (which had its own prequel). Lionsgate was responsible for the releases of the most recent films.
