A prequel to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" which will explore the origins of the horror icon in the 1970s. The story will begin with the Leatherface character in his teenage years. He resides in a mental institution until he joins a pack of fellow patients who all break out and go on the run from the authorities.
