Horror News: Texas Chainsaw Massacre Franchise To Change Hands, Another Reboot Likely

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has one of the strangest and most notoriously bad continuities. The property has changed hands numerous times already which has seen reboots, remakes, prequels, and too many errors to mention. Nothing in this series makes sense anymore. And this last attempt to give teenage Leatherface a story backfired in epic fashion. 

In the last couple years, we've seen Texas Chainsaw 3D which abandoned much of the gore for a story that tried to sequel-ize the original movie decades later. Despite glaring issues with the plot and terrible acting across the board, it at least connected to the first movie in many ways. Then, 2017 saw the release of Leatherface, an attempt to once again give a back story for the chainsaw wielding character. Due to several issues while trying to get the film released, it was pushed back repeatedly which ultimately caused more problems with the licensing of the franchise. 

Now, word has dropped that Campbell-Grobman/Millenium Films have officially lost the rights to the series. Because of the delays and not getting the latest out in a reasonable time frame, the rights are now reverted back from their ownership and will once again be up for grabs.
