Sally Hardesty’s character went through hell in Texas Chainsaw Massacre. However, she did make it out alive. Hardesty is set to return in the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel. The logline included in the press release gave some major clues as to what direction the story for TCM will take.
“After nearly 50 years of hiding, Leatherface returns to terrorize a group of idealistic young friends who accidentally disrupt his carefully shielded world in a remote Texas town.”
That takes the new cast a whole 50 years into the future. I’m shocked Leatherface can still pick up the chainsaw at this age let alone swing it around in the famous Chainsaw Dance. But, I suppose if Micheal Myers can remain spry as a geriatric so can Leatherface.
The synopsis for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre goes like this:
Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teenage sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), head to the remote town of Harlow, Texas to start an idealistic new business venture. But their dream soon turns into a waking nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the home of Leatherface, the deranged serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to haunt the area’s residents — including Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of his infamous 1973 massacre who’s hell-bent on seeking revenge.
So there you have it! Olwen Fouéré will take over the role of Marilyn Burns in the sequel.
