Moriarty Knows Who’s Playing Jason In The New FRIDAY THE 13th!

Hey, everyone. “Moriarty” here. I would call this an exclusive, except it appears that the fine folks over at Bloody-Disgusting have confirmed the same information, so let’s just call this “exciting news I can personally vouch is correct,” and leave it at that. I know we’re supposed to get furious over every single remake that’s announced these days, but I actually think FRIDAY THE 13th is a film that’s ripe for reinvention. The first one is a clever-but-cheap slasher mystery that works primarily because of the energy of Savini’s make-up effects and the backstory of Jason Voorhees, which is more of a red herring than anything. The second film, though... the movie where they introduced retarded redneck mutant Jason... that’s the one I think is probably the scariest in the entire series. And it’s also probably the most “character” that Jason shows in the entire 47 part film series so far. I think if you look back at the first four or five films and try to put together a new movie that takes those films as inspiration and puts together a new, cohesive mythology, you might actually reinvent Jason as a movie monster and do so quite effectively. Having spoken a bit with Shannon & Swift, the writers who were responsible for this particular reboot, I think they’re on the right track, and I’m actually curious to see what they’ve come up with. And now, they’ve got the right Jason for the job.

I might be a bit biased here, but I think Derek Mears is dead right for the part. Derek’s an actor and a stuntman, and he’s also one of us... a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE geek who really loves the monsters he plays. In my second-season MASTERS OF HORROR episode, Derek played the Demon Father, the giant devil beast that shows up and wreaks havoc on the abortion clinic. Working with him was a blast, and part of what I enjoyed most was just talking horror with Derek. I have every expectation that no matter how the film is as a whole, Derek’s going to give us an iconic Jason interpretation, and I look forward to seeing his work. Here’s the Bloody-Disgusting link for their take on this news!

    Still tired of folks calling the first 4 films shit

    by ThePilgrim

    Fuck You. Friday has it's place. Part 1 is a great first watch. <P> What you all forget is the fact that Friday reinvented the slasher just a little bit more than Halloween did. Every film after it pretty much used the Friday vibe too death thus killing the magic that the first 4 films offered- You forget the true gems when there lots of knock off's piled on top of it. Yeah Friday was a Halloween knockoff but it was a knock off with brains.... <P> 2 is great 3 is too- It birthed the Jason we all know. 4 was fucking balls to the wall awesome! <P> Fuck You Downtalkers!!!! 5 ain't half bad- The Roy twist makes it the Halloween part 3 too most fans. But Halloween 3 rules!!!!!!!!! So again fuck you Downtalking pieces of shit! IF it;s so great to blend all four and make it a new film then all 4 were great as is!!! I mean doesn't that statement contradict the previous statement! <P> The originals fell on it's face in part 6- <P> Part 7's Jason looked cool, btu the story was god awful, <P>8 shows NY the way it sorta was before it was cleaned up- but again that film sucks ass. <P> Hell... Oh shit don't get me started! <P>Part X is fun but on the whole it sucks 3 movie so far and no camp crystal lake... thats whats wrong goddamn it! I still don't hold out much hope for the Nancy Drew angle! I just wanted the camp in summer time with camp councilors- with pretty naked chick tit's, some potty humor, some drug and booze abuse, and some virginal loser trying to get his prick wet. <P> All that and the misadventures in between with some goalie killing these character in cool creative ways... Thats all I wanted. But NNNNNNooooooooo!!!! Time to get serious with the series! Hahahaha OK! Good Luck with that!! Take away all that fun and beauty

  • March 30, 2008, 10:17 p.m. CST

    IMDB says....

    by Herb West

    Derek Mears did stunt work for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Pirates of the Caribbean.

  • March 30, 2008, 10:19 p.m. CST

    Oh and guess what

    by ThePilgrim

    Halloween is a rip off of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Bob's scene is beat for beat just like Jerry's scene. And Pam finding the bones is Laurie finding her dead freinds. The mask also sort of sparked the idea in Johns head- that and the eye without a face. I called TCM the Halloween in Texas. And Halloween the TCM in Suburbia. Stop Talking shit on Friday you Assholes!

  • March 30, 2008, 10:23 p.m. CST


    by Pariah74

    Isn't that guy a bit old to play Jason in Friday the 13th? Is this a sequel or a remake?

  • March 30, 2008, 10:24 p.m. CST

    So does it mean....

    by Herb West

    that Jason will be without a mask for a large portion of the movie since they found an actor like Mears. Has anyone heard who will write/direct this movie?

  • March 30, 2008, 10:28 p.m. CST

    Michael Audrey Myers

    by ThePilgrim

    Rob Ruined him for casual fans, but Myers was the better "first one out the gate" character <P> Leatherface second, <P> Jason Third. <P> As far as a series "On The Whole" Goes. <P>Well Jason and his mom wins there. <P> I can watch the Firdays in order up to part 5. I can't say the same thing with TCM or HALLOWEEN. <P> I give up on Halloween after part 3 and TCM after part 2.

  • March 30, 2008, 10:30 p.m. CST

    See how the casuals are still confused over what this film is

    by ThePilgrim

    It's a Midquel. IT takes place after PAm does her thing after Jason does his. Somethink it happened right after the hospital escape in part 4. Others think somewhere in the middle of part 3. All i know is rumors say it takes place between 2-4

  • March 30, 2008, 10:36 p.m. CST

    Wish the studio would make an official

    by ThePilgrim

    annoucement cause so many fans and casuals are fucking confused!!!! Is it a Remake or a Midquel. Stop dicking around!

  • March 30, 2008, 10:46 p.m. CST

    by Herb West

    Friday the 13th (2009) from IMDB. It lists the writers as Damian Shannon and Mark Swift. Both of them wrote Freddy vs. Jason and not much else.

    The director.....

    by Herb West

    Marcus Nispel also did The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

  • March 30, 2008, 10:53 p.m. CST

    I have no problem with the remake as long as it's hardcore

    by IndustryKiller!

    And I don't mean hardcore like torture porn, I mean hardcore like a true to form SLASHER film. Something I don't think we've seen done right in years. It also happens to be the same thing that king of the hacks Michael Bay seems mystified about. His movies are so vanilla and so watered down that they don't register in any way as horror films. None of them feel dirty enough. The actng in recent horror films is probably better than the days of yore but everything else is total crap. If they can bring the sleaze back tot eh slasher, along with the sense of tension, then we might be okay. I certainly don't want a continuation of the series.

  • March 30, 2008, 10:56 p.m. CST

    Wait Marcus Nispel is directing this???

    by IndustryKiller!

    Nevermind that last post, we are absolutely fucked. It's not gonna make a lick of difference who plays Jason, the film is going to be every bit the shiny bore that the 2003 TCM remake was. The type of film that completely misses and insults the genre it claims to be in. God knows they made money in the TCM remake and to any hack worth his salt that's all that matters. Fucking terrible.

  • March 30, 2008, 10:57 p.m. CST

    Marcus Nispel

    by Herb West

    is also doing a movie based on Alice in Wonderland. From IMDB- 'Years after her first experience in Wonderland, Alice (Gellar), now a disturbed young woman mourning the death of her parents, returns to the land of talking animals and the wicked Queen of Hearts. Based on the computer game "American McGee's Alice." I'm not kidding.

  • March 30, 2008, 11 p.m. CST

    The biggest Jason ever, that would rule. Joking aside, we do need a real true to form hardocre slasher film as stated a few posts up. The torture shit is old and more gross out than scary or suspenseful.If this guy pulls it off then I say start a new franchise all together.

  • March 31, 2008, 1:13 a.m. CST

    Moriarty is right about the potential for a remake

    by Vern

    but like Industry Killer says, it doesn't matter because Marcus Nispel ain't the guy to do it. This guy's one and only great achievement so far is that hilarious list of demands he wrote before getting fired from END OF DAYS. I wish him and Michael Bay would go back to directing C+C Music Factory videos and leave our innocent eyeballs alone.

    You lost me bud. What does it explain? Also, Industry Killer did not think Rob Zombie's Halloween was the height of filmmaking. I'm not sure what he thinks is the height of filmmaking, because he hates most modern movies. He's Industry Killer. But what's wrong with being open to the possibility of a remake being good? You don't think a remake can be good?<p> To stay on topic, the guy looks like a good Jason in the photo. Some of those Jasons they take the mask off and look like a regular dude. This guy would not be as disappointing.

    by Stalin vs Predator

    Don't cry, Shia - there's room for you in the inevitable sequence that will show and explain Jason's childhood in detail, so that the cre-teens that watch those remakes won't have to say "Like, I totally don't get it, is he like, from there, like, how did he get immortal, duh, like, totally whatever!", or something to the general effect.

    You guys know one of the writers + the actor & Harry

    by ThePilgrim

    Worked with the director in the TCM remake. <P> Guess we don't need to hear AICN's opinions on this film as it will be bias. <P> These guys wrote Freddy Vs Jason and it was a piece of shit!!!!! Sure it made money. I mean how couldn't it. No Self Respecting Horror Fan could avoid it- Shit Or Not. <P>Saddest of all is the fact that, that film was in the works since 1988. Right Issues kept locking it up and then when they finally settled it. This is what they gave us from those two Fucktards!!! <P> And now we are getting another Friday The 13th that doesn't homage what made the first 4 so great!!! We don't get the Camp Councilors <P> No beavy of Tit's and Ass (maybe a quick tit in the beginning, but the opener is a toss away to reintroduce who Jason is and Where we are in the Plot's Time Line) <P> No real character playing off one another with exceptional Potty Humor. We have a Lone Wolf walking the woods looking for clues, probably isn't even summertime. <P> No Loser and or Loser Types trying to get laid (Unless it's in the toss away opening 15 minute scene- It's like they are taking one giant huge shit on what made the first 4 so much fun) <P> Cause Campy isn't where they want to go with it. I say fuck that I want Meatballs Meet's Jason. <P> I was so hoping beyond hope that the camp would be chock full of these things, and the disabled kids rumor posted on IMDB. <P> Friday never explored that part 5 was about Mentally ill people living in a group home, near the camp site, not Psychical Handicapped Children. Jason could finally go after kids now- Goddamn it!!! Thats way more entertaining and scary then a bunch of teens and these kids have disabilities, so you don't harp on them for fucking up when trying to escape!!! <P> But no......... We are following a guy around as he looks for a bitch who was with the group of pot heads that never came back. <P>It's probably his sister or an X girlfriend. Fuck that!!!! I hope some one leaks this piece of shit Screenplay. <P> The whole thing sounds like ass. <P> The Guy hired to play him is the only correct choice they made so far.

    Jason the Red Power Ranger as Jason

    by Prossor

    In between putting up with that gay robot, and Zordon, and leading the Rangers, and trying to subdue the sexual tension with the Pink Ranger, Jason has to release his stress by donning a hockey mask and killing people in a relaxing camp site.

    I refuse to see this

    by Sithdan

    Jason's mother is supposed to be the murderer, not Jason. Jason was intended to be the tragic victim, not the monster. The original writer says this himself.

    Derek is the right guy for the job


    We all would have loved Kane Hodder to come back, but, Derek is a perfect successor. He's good people and I wish him nothing but, the best.

    I don't have to read it Released the first 15 minutes of the film with a slight descript of what else would happen. You got a guy named Chumbler who dies with in the first 15 minutes. His visual description sounds alot like Harry Knowles. <P> I wouldn't be surprised if they hired Harry to play the role <P> (insuring nothing but praise from the AICN folks) <P>Tommy Jarvis this CW/WB fuck is not, and if you can't give us Tommy then give us a chick in the lead. <P> Also the Main Reason I don't have to read it too know that it will suck. :::HINT::: It's scribed by the Two Hacks who wrote Freddy Vs Jason. I'm a fan, a big fucking fan & I know that doesn't Mean shit, but as a Fan I feel Slighted. I want the property to receive a great relaunch. Hell I don't think that it needs to be a remake and I still don't think that it is One.. <P> your gonna get a group of retards in the beginning roaming the woods looking for their pot, they get it. then they sit around a camp fire and tell the Jason Voorhees tale- Any of you all ever hear about the Voorhees Curse. 1957 a young boy attending summer camp here drowns. The counselors weren't paying attention... They were too busy screwing. His name was Jason. Jason Voorhees. <P> One year later two kids are found murdered near the campsite A few months after that the campsite is burnt to the ground. Arson is suspected. 1962, The camp is rebuilt, it's a few weeks from reopening. The Water Supply is bad. The camp is shut down indefinitely. 18 years pass 1980, Steve Christie buys the site. He decides too refurbish it and get it opened by summertime. He hires a group of friends to help him hands. Jason's Mother Pam shows up, and kills them all. The Lone survivor Alice chops off Pams head. (PAUSE) Time passes The Camp reopens. Councilors arrive for training. A Mysterious Copycat murderer attacks. <P> Lone survivor "Ginny" claims she killed the Murderer and that it was Jason. His Body and Makeshift Cabin she claims to have killed him in is never found. <P> 5 years pass.... <P> A group of teens rent out a cabin on Camp. The Killer strikes again! He took a Hockey mask from one of the victims a Prankster/Wannabe Actor Named Shelly. <P>This time the Lone survivor "Chris" -A Female once again, Kills the Murderer hitting him in the head with an Axe. <P> The Body is zipped up and taken to Pinehurst Memorial Hospital. <P> The coroner who signed the Body in- is found the next morning with his neck slit open, a nurse is found in the supply room with her guts hanging out of her stomach. The body of the Murderer is never found. Some think it was Jason, Most believe he's returned to these woods looking for the girl who killed his mother. <P> One of the listeners interrupts.. "But if he drown when he was a kid, then the killer couldn't be him. that doesn't Make any sense." The teller cut's back in. <P> "No one found the body of the boy.." --------------------------------------- All I'm saying is the fans on the whole know that the only thing missed is the correct setting. AKA the camp in summer with councilors. The retarded kids rumor was pure gold <P> It's a fucking shame that that angle isn't being played out. The film is supposed to be a fun scary flick. what we know so far sounds too serious for it's own good and too small as well. One guy looking for clues is not my idea of a great Friday flick Just you watch, someone else will use that handicapped kids routine in a horror flick soon. Kids in danger is much more scary then teens or adults. Articus if you heard me I said Derek was a great choice. So fuck off man!

    As fans we have endured 3 films "Takes Manhattan" "HELL" "X" with no prominent Camp Crystal Lake in Summer with Councilors setting. Thats whats wrong with this new film. The plot says it all. Investigates. The opening says pothead looking for weed near the campsite are attacked shortly after telling the legend. You don't have to read the screenplay to know that we are getting shafted on the one thing We as Fans have cried for a return too.

    Retards Like Jason Movies

    by 60091

    The only way to stop movies like this from being made is to tell people to stop going to see them.

    Harry, get on this shit - Platinum Dunes are going to assfuck one of the greatest horror movies ever made:<P> 2gfq8s <P> Oh yes. Michael Bay presents THE EXORCIST, reputedly to be directed by those juggfucklers who made ALIEN VS PREDATOR: REQUIEM.<P> This is getting serious. Who will stop the absolute torrent of shit pouring forth from the PD production offices like pea soup from a messed up Linda Blair?<P> WHEN WILL IT FUCKING END? AAAAAARGGHHHHH!<p> Michael Bay sucks cocks in Hell. At least, he will if there is a God. Which it looks like there isn't, if this movie gets made.

    And furthermore to the EXORCIST fiasco...

    by spud mcspud

    We already have a shit reimagining of that movie, complete with over-acting, too many overdone CGI effects and a total over-reliance on loud sound effects, complete with nonsensical plot. It was called STIGMATA, and directed by the second greatest menace to horror since Michael Bay, which is RUPERT WAINWRIGHT - who, apart from STIGMATA, also directed Carpenter reimagined shitfest THE FOG (shudder) and the only truly scary movie of his career - PLEASE HAMMER DON'T HURT 'EM: THE MOVIE.<P> He also directed the STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON video. A pasty white guy directing an NWA video back in the day? I smell the smell of selling out, even as they were selling out of FEAR OF A BLACK PLANET...<P> Oh, and the F13 remake sounds like creamed ass with a side of ass and some ass on toast. Can I have ass with that?

    Well, it's good to see that you do in fact have NO idea what you're talking about, and that what Chud has up is out dated and wrong. Just another internet know it all who really knows Zilch. Enjoy basking in your negativity and blissful ignorance!
