Texas Chainsaw Legacy? New Movie Reportedly in the Works

It’s now been two years since Netflix premiered Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a “legacy sequel” to Tobe Hooper’s original horror classic that arrived on February 18, 2022. What’s next for the franchise, you may be wondering? Well, fresh rumors have begun to swirl.

According to a report from Geek Vibes Nation – which cites “Movie insider Daniel RPK” as its source – a new movie tentatively titled Texas Chainsaw Legacy is in the works.

“The film is set to explore the seemingly peaceful façade of Oasis Oaks, a gated community in rural Texas,” the site notes. “Within the manicured lawns and vigilant security, a protagonist family enjoying suburban bliss becomes entangled in a harrowing battle for survival as they confront the infamous Leatherface and his macabre kin on an abandoned property nearby.”

We normally wouldn’t report on rumors such as this one without any confirmation, but Bloody Disgusting has also been hearing that a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie is indeed in development. We cannot confirm the Texas Chainsaw Legacy title or plot synopsis at this time, but we’ll keep digging and we expect to learn more throughout the year.

Will the next movie be going straight to Netflix like the 2022 film or was that a one-time situation? That’ll be up to Legendary to decide. Stay tuned for more as we learn it.

In its debut weekend, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) came in the #2 spot on Netflix’s global charts for that week, viewed by subscribers for 29,180,000 hours in those first few days. In its second week of being available on Netflix, the legacy sequel was the #3 most-watched movie on the streaming service, suggesting it was definitely a hit for Netflix.

Netflix has only provided numbers on the film for those first two weeks, so the trail goes cold from there. But we do know that Texas Chainsaw Massacre director David Blue Garcia is very much interested in picking up the chainsaw again, revealing in an interview back in February ’22 that he’s already got “some really cool ideas” for where the franchise could go next.

In the post-credits teaser scene for Texas Chainsaw Massacre, we saw Leatherface return to the infamous house from Tobe Hooper’s original classic, the place where the nightmare began. A battered and bloodied Leatherface stumbles down a dirt path carrying his trusty chainsaw, the filmmakers revealing his old family home as the monster’s new destination…

Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) produced the 2022 movie.
