Bloody Disgusting reports that Jordana Brewster ("The Fast and the Furious") is set play the lead role in New Line Cinema's upcoming prequel to the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

We've confirmed this news to be 100% true.

Jonathan Liebesman (Darkness Falls, The Ring) will direct the pic written by David Schow. The story follows a group of kids who run afoul of chainsaw-wielding psycho Leatherface and his demented family.

Andrew Bryniarksi is still not confirmed to return as Leatherface, rumors still indicate he'll be replaced.

The story will apparently reveal Leatherface's origins.
