Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013) is a direct sequel to the original film, ignoring the continuity of the previous sequels. Leatherface is now identified as Jedidiah Sawyer (Dan Yeager). The film picks up immediately after The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, where Sally Hardesty escapes death and informs the locals of the atrocities committed by the Sawyers. After a group of local vigilantes burn down the Sawyer house and kill most of his family, Leatherface spends the film seeking revenge. In the crossfire is his newly discovered cousin, Heather (Alexandra Daddario).[23] A prequel to the original film, titled Leatherface, was released in October 2017.[24] It centers on the youngest member of the Sawyer family, Jedidiah (Sam Strike), being institutionalized after his family murdered the daughter of law enforcement officer Hal Hartman (Stephen Dorff). He escapes the mental hospital years later with three other inmates and a hostage nurse, leaving a trail of bodies as they are pursued by the deranged Hartman. Jedidiah suffers extensive trauma at Hartman's hands, until the other Sawyer family members rescue him, taking Hartman and the nurse captive. Goaded by the family's matriarch Verna Sawyer (Lili Taylor), the mentally and physically damaged Jedidiah slaughters Hartman and the nurse with a gifted chainsaw. Jedediah later crafts his first face mask out of Hartman and the nurse's flesh, which he now wears to cover his disfigured face.[25]

Icelandic-American actor Gunnar Hansen was the first to portray the role of Leatherface,[92] auditioning for the role after hearing from a friend about a group of filmmakers that were making a horror film and needed someone to portray a 'crazed murderer'. While the audition went well, with the filmmakers being impressed with the actor's imposing figure,[93][94][95] Hansen was told someone was already hired for the role.[96][97] Hansen was contacted by filmmakers a week later, as the original actor turn out to be an alcoholic who refused cooperate,[72][96][97] although Hooper would reveal to Hansen that he had been his first choice for the role.[83] During his first meeting with the filmmakers after being cast, Hooper would explain the character in detail for Hansen; describing Leatherface as being severely mentally impaired, and insane, which made the character violent and unpredictable.[83][98][99] In order to prepare for the role, Hansen experimented with different vocal tones and pitches in order to find the right voice for the character. Hansen also visited a special needs school in Austin, observing how the students moved and spoke, in an attempt to find the proper movement and behavior.[Note 6] The role was both physically and psychologically taxing for the actor, having to work up to sixteen hours a day seven days a week in extremely hot and humid weather conditions.[97][102] Throughout the twenty eight days of production, Hansen was separated from the other actors, as the filmmakers wanted the actors fear of the character to be genuine.[103][104] Filmmakers also cautioned Hansen to not wash his costume or remove the mask during filming, for fear of possibly damaging them, as they did not have enough funds to replace them.[105][106][107] The mask itself greatly impaired the actor's ability to see, as it had eyeholes on the design were too small for Hansen to see through clearly.[108] While filming the scene where Leatherface first appears and kills Kirk (William Vail), Hansen unintentionally gave the actor a black eye after hitting him in the face with a fake sledgehammer.[109] A fully functioning chainsaw, borrowed from one of the locals,[110] was used during production; for certain sequences, the blade was removed, and a piece of duct tape was also used to cover the brand logo.[111] In the scenes where Leatherface was cutting objects with his chainsaw, the power tool would have teeth. Hansen stated in 2013 that he didn't realize the full extent of that danger until he was chopping wood whilst living in the woods after the film's release.[24] The extreme temperatures and grueling physical demands were a source of great agitation for the actor, at one point during filming Hansen had become so frustrated while the shooting of the "Dinner Scene" when the tubes of fake blood didn't work, that he had cut open actress Marilyn Burns' finger just to get the scene over with. Hansen also recalled that during the scene where the Hitchhiker threatens Sally with a hammer, the exhausted and borderline delirious actor went temporarily mad.[89][112] The infamous final scene where Leatherface twirls around in a rage with his chainsaw, referred to as the "Chainsaw Dance", was partially improvised on the day of shooting.[85][113] As the actor later recalled, the scene came from all his frustration during filming, which he admitted came out in the final shot in the film with Leatherface madly swinging the chainsaw around, jokingly referring to it as a last ditch effort to 'kill' the director.[88][113] Hansen later returned to the series in 2013, as Boss Sawyer in Texas Chainsaw 3D.[114][115]

For the 2013 reboot, KNB EFX Group lead by co-founder Howard Berger[198] with assistance of fellow KNB makeup artist Mike McCarty, were hired to bring the character back to his roots.[199] Working from the earlier screenplay drafts, in which Leatherface was depicted as a more elderly version of the character, concept art by Jerad S. Marantz would emphasize the forty year time-span between the original film and the new iteration of the character. Details such as Leatherface killing and wearing the faces of senior citizens was incorporated into Marantz's earlier designs.[200] Subsequent rewrites of the original draft would abandon the concept,[201] as Luessenhop wanted a design that looked more "crispy" and resembling something more like tanned leather. In the end, Berger designed three separate masks were used by Leatherface in the film: the "Pretty Woman" mask seen in the beginning of the film, the "Comfort" mask, and the "Slaughterhouse" mask,[199] also referred to as the character's "Rage mask" during production.[202] Each mask was molded to fit Yeager's face and given more flexibility than previous created for the character, giving Yeager more freedom to express himself with his face and eyes. The "Pretty Woman" mask was created as an exact replica of the mask seen in the first film using modern-day materials, while the "Slaughterhouse" and "Comfort" masks were both original designs by the KNB EFX team. The "Slaughterhouse" mask was intentionally designed to feel distorted and warped from old age; pieces of facial hair was added to the design to make it look and feel distinct, while granules of salt were mixed into the latex to give it a rough and ridged look. Each design of the new masks were fitted with a pair of leather straps on the back in compliance to Lionsgate's incentive to have something resembling straps from an old boot, also cutting the amount of time the makeup team needed to spend applying and removing the masks.[199] Yeager recalled that it took approximately forty-five minutes to apply makeup for the mask, with fifteen minutes spent removing the mask.[203]

While filmmakers of each entry in the franchise would maintain the most basic characterization of Leatherface being a blank slate, each proceeding version of the character completely disregard the concept behind the character's mask(s), instead focusing on the horrific nature of the mask itself.[213] Platinum Dunes' remake series would put forth their own interpretation of the mask; with the mask now representing, as one observer pointed out, all of the primal rage and 'lack of humanity' that existed within the character.[249] Texas Chainsaw 3D actor Dan Yeager described Leatherface as being 'nothing more than a mask', with the masks he wore being 'real' personalities for the character.[159] The masks themselves were also a source of comfort and safety for Leatherface, with makeup artist Mike McCarty describing the "Comfort" mask seen in the film as the equivalent of a "favorite pair of slippers". Filmmakers of the 2013 entry would also add the notion that Leatherface stitches each mask onto his own face, effectively merging himself with each mask's identity.[199]

Director Wright felt confident with his casting in the film, saying that "like with Hot Fuzz [when they] had great people in every single tiny part, it's the same with this. What's great with this is that there's people [like] Michael [Cera] and Jason [Schwartzman], and [...] people who are up and coming, like Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza and Brie Larson, and then there's complete unknowns as well".[48] Collider noted that the less-known actors fit their roles well, with Wright confirming that they did not have much pressure to find a lot of big names, adding that "Universal never really gave [him] any problems about casting bigger people, because in a way Michael [Cera] has starred in two $100 million-plus movies, and also a lot of the other people, though they're not the biggest names, people certainly know who they are."[48] He also noted that while some of the actors were more famous when they auditioned, like Schwartzman and Evans, others became more well-known over the time the film was in development, saying that "Anna Kendrick did her first audition for it before she shot the first Twilight. And Aubrey Plaza got the part in Scott Pilgrim before she did Funny People or Parks and Recreation, which is crazy. It shows you how long this film has taken to get made."[10]

Wright says one thing he is particularly happy with is that this film, unlike many comedies including his own, has "a lot of funny women in it", recalling a particular scene he dubbed "the funny lady relay race", because it "starts with Anna Kendrick, then switches to Aubrey Plaza, then switches to Mary [Elizabeth Winstead], then switches to Brie Larson, and it's just Michael [Cera] being attacked from all sides from all the different women in the film."[48] In June 2013, O'Malley, who is of Korean and white Canadian parentage, stated that he regretted the fact that the film's cast was predominantly white, and that there were not enough roles for minorities.[56]
