New Jason Voorhees revealed

derek-mears-head-shot.jpgThe new Jason Vorhees in the Marcus Nispel directed remake of Friday the 13th is Derek Mears. Mears is an alumni of horror films, having stared in The Hills Have Eyes 2, D-War, the Pro-Life episode of Masters of Horror and Cursed. I and many people would rather see Kane Hodder behind the mask again but I guess producers believe that since it’s a remake, why not get a new Jason? I would agree with that except you never see who is behind the mask anyway so it makes no difference. Why not use someone familiar with the part? I just hope that Mears and Odette Yustman on screen with Nispel behind the camera make for a good remake. Good remakes are very few and very rare.

  • Lol. Very true 90% of the time except the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes were shot very well. Their scripts needed work but they were shot by component , up and coming directors.

    True, no matter what you thought of those films, they were competently made. Me, I liked Hodder for the time but he started getting chunkier as he got older. I liked the guy who played Jason in Freddy vs Jason but lets be honest, all you really need is a big guy. This guy looks menacing but Im wondering if theyre going to show Jason as a human first then go onto the supernatural stuff or maybe go into a whole different direction, which would be cool.

  • Nispel’s got a good eye but it all comes down to the script. Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote a fantastic script for Freddy vs Jason but it eventually had the shit chopped out of it, had plot holes introduced that weren’t there previously, the characters were shallowed out as was the plot. I read the script for Freddy vs. Jason then went to see the movie and thought: What the hell is this? They made a script that transcended ALL of the Friday the 13ths and The Nightmare of Elm Streets, interconnected them cleverly and then had it turned into cheese. I hope Nipel doesn’t butcher their upcoming script like Ronny Yu did for Freddy vs. Jason. On a Ronny Yu side note, Fearless was fraking fantastic.
