Fede Alvarez, Producer of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Reboot hires new Director One Week into Filming

Well... That seems troubling.

It was announced back in September that Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, Don't Breathe) was going to be producing his own version of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Ryan and Andy Tohill (The Dig) were set to direct the film, but it would appear plans have changed.


Deadline reported today that the Tohill brothers have left the project due to creative differences. It was said to have been "A week into production in Bulgaria."


Despite the roadblock, the film already has brought on a new director, David Blue Garcia (Tejano), and the footage shot by the Tohill brothers will be scrapped completely. The cast of the new film includes Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner) and Moe Dunford (Vikings)


Legendary is hoping to kick start a new series with this one, reportedly finding a way to connect itself to the original.
