Take a Look at Some Rejected Concept Art for Texas Chainsaw 3D
Texas Chainsaw 3D opened to impressive numbers last month, debuting in the number one box office position before spiraling out of control, and out of the top 30 rankings in just four weeks time. Apparently word-of-mouth spread: this one’s a clunker, and first weekend suckers clearly made it known.
Aside from a shaky script, mediocre performances, a complete lack of synergy and a recycled concept, the picture also featured a Leatherface that didn’t sit well with all too many viewers. The iconic mask was a disappointment, flat out.
We’re now getting a look at some concept art (courtesy of GeekTyrant), that features a trio of proposed ideas for the Leatherface mask. Interestingly enough, all three of these masks look (arguably) superior to the mask that made it to screen. It’s hard to be surprised by the decision to bypass these designs considering what the film offered as a whole, but hey, chances are we’ll see another Leatherface flick surface in the next few years, so maybe we’ll be lucky enough to spot one of these specific renditions make the cut.
Get a look at the concept art below.
Texas Chainsaw 3D was directed by John Luessenhop. Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms are responsible for the script. Tania Raymonde (Death Valley), Alexandra Daddario (Bereavement), Scott Eastwood (Invictus), Richard Riehle (Chillerama), young stunt woman Elena Sanchez and R&B crooner Trey Songz star.
Synopsis: “A young woman travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding killer is part of the reward.”
