Yes! According to both Bloody-Disgusting and Aint It Cool News, actor Derek Mears (who’s appeared in genre flicks THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2, CURSED and John Carpenter’s Masters Of Horror episodes) is in final negotiations to play JASON VOORHEES in the new FRIDAY THE 13TH remake from Platinum Dunes. TEXAS CHAINSAW remake director Marcus Nispel is directing from a script by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (FREDDY VS JASON). SUPERNATURAL’s Jared Padalecki has reportedly been cast in the lead roel to square off again Jason. Should be interesting! Hope they go back to the pre-zombie version of Jason from FRIDAY’s 2 through 4. He was scary as shit back then!
