Schow Updates Chainsaw and Masters
David J. Schow, scribe of New Line?s TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE prequel, tells Fango that Lukas Ettlin, director of photography of Stefan Avalos? THE GHOSTS OF EDENDALE, will serve as DP on the Jonathan (DARKNESS FALLS) Liebesman-directed saw flick. The production is slated to go before the cameras in Texas by September. In regards to the casting rumors concerning Leatherface, an actor has not yet been decided upon, although Schow confirms that R.A. (LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III) Mihailoff?s name has been brought up. In regard to that possibility, Schow states, ?No one has ever played Leatherface twice! It would set a precedent.?
In further news, the writer reveals that director Larry (IT?S ALIVE) Cohen has been tapped to direct Schow?s script ?Pick Me Up? for Showtime?s MASTERS OF HORROR series. Casting is currently underway, with Cohen to commence principal photography late this month in Vancouver.
