Bloody Disgusting is reporting that John Luessenhop is in talks to direct Leatherface 3D, Lionsgate's relaunch of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise.

Writers Debra Sullivan, Adam Marcus and Stephen Susco have worked on the new project, which is said to pick up immediately where Tobe Hooper's original 1974 film left off and then flashes forward 35 years.
