The remake train is staying strong as Jason Voorhees will be reappearing in theatres in 1009, but not in part eleven of his famed series. No, he will be coming back for the first time in a remake of the original Friday The 13th film. Derek Mears has already been cast in the role of the hockey-masked killer, but now perhaps some of his victims have faces.
Bloody-Disgusting has learned exclusively that 21-year-old Danielle Panabaker (Mr. Brooks, Sky High), Aaron Yoo (Disturbia, 21) and Travis Van Winkle (Transformers, Left in Darkness, Asylum) – all pictured inside – are the latest camp counselors to enroll at Camp Crystal Lake. They will join Jared Padalecki, Derek Mears and Amanda Righetti in Platinum Dunes’ remake of Friday the 13th, which arrives in theaters Friday, February 13, 2009. The remake will focus on Jason Voorhees (Mears) — who will wear the mask and kill — and keep the famous setting of Crystal Lake. The film arrives from New Line Cinema, Paramount Pictures and MTV Films. The Friday The 13th franchise has grossed more than $300 million in the US alone.
