Bloody-Disgusting is now the official website for all Platinum Dunes happenings, so producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form checked in via their B-D blog with the first photo of them on the set of the new FRIDAY THE 13TH remake, currently lensing in Austin, TX with Marcus Nispel (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE remake) directing.
Fuller has plenty to say on the new Jason Voorhees via his blog. Here’s an excerpt: "Tonight, my fourth on set, but the first that brought me face to face with Mr. Voorhees in all his glory – I can tell you without hesitation that every minute of frustration, pain and misery was worth it – really worth it, because tonight Jason Voorhees scared the shit out of me. No, he didn’t threaten me with that huge machete; all he did was look into the camera and every hair on my body stood up. Derek Mears captures the best of the all the Jason’s and injects the character with his own element of tangible menace." For the complete blog post, click HERE.
Meanwhile, B-D also reports that FRIDAY THE 13TH and FREDDY VS JASON screenwriters Damian Shannon and Mark Swift are on queue to script the new NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake, also from Platinum Dunes. Read the details HERE. Check out the production photo from FRIDAY THE 13TH below!
