The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ The Sawyer Clan Has Their Matriarch

Honey Buzz ~ The Sawyer Clan Has Their Matriarch



So far, the Honeys have been cautiously optimistic regarding the news over planned Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, Leatherface. With French directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (Inside, Livide) on board, we can be certain that time travel into the Sawyer's past will at the very least be bloody. Casting announcements have been coming more frequently now, with the very young and very... smooth-skinned Sam Strike cast as Jackson Sawyer: the man who would be Leatherface. Still, cautiously optimistic.

But now, with Bloody Disgusting's announcement that an actress is in talks to play Verna Sawyer, I am going to throw caution to the wind and say...

I don't care anymore. Interest level - zero.

While I am 100% that scores of horror fans are going to be tickled red over this news, I actually don't care that Angela Bettis is apparently in negotiations to play the Sawyer matriarch, Verna. Other people really seem to love movies like May and The Woman, but I am not one of those people. I think Bettis has two settings: dead faced and crazy eyes. I don't find either one all that appealing, but I'm willing to admit that in this case, they could work. That being said, I'm still finding it hard to get excited about Leatherface now. What do you think, darklings? Are you excited to see Bettis as one of the Sawyers or is there someone else you think might have been better suited to the role? ~ The Revenge Honey
