Back in April, we tipped you off to the coming prequel of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. Reports indicate that shooting began this week on the film in Austin, Texas. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michaelthe Clonus HorrorBay, the sequel is aiming for an October 6, 2006 release date.

Cast members include Jordana Brewster, Taylor Handley, Matthew Bomer, and Diora Baird. Previously confirmed actors R. Lee Ermey and Andrew Bryniarski are also returning to reprise their roles as Sheriff Hoyt and Leatherface, respectively. 

Very little additional news has been released, and no official title has been announced for the remake; early reports simply call it The Beginning or The Origin. Anyone have a better suggestion?
