Fede Alvarez's 'Texas Chain Saw Massacre' Reboot Snags Writer Chris Thomas Devlin

As previously reported by BD, Tobe Hooper‘s 1974 horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is getting a new reboot from Don’t Breathe and Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez and writer/producer Rodo Sayagues. And today we have been informed that Chris Thomas Devlin has been hired to write the screenwriter for the new film.

In Hooper’s original 1974 masterpiece:

Sally (Marilyn Burns) hears that her grandfather’s grave may have been vandalized, she and her paraplegic brother, Franklin (Paul A. Partain), set out with their friends to investigate. After a detour to their family’s old farmhouse, they discover a group of crazed, murderous outcasts living next door. As the group is attacked one by one by the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen), who wears a mask of human skin, the survivors must do everything they can to escape.
