First Look At JASON VOORHEES In The FRIDAY THE 13TH Remake! UPDATED!

In today’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, you can find a teaser image from FRIDAY THE 13TH and our first peek at Derek Mears as Jason Voorhees!!! Judging from the image, it looks like we’re getting pre-"zombie" Jason ala FRIDAY THE 13TH 3 and 4! (Which I’m all for!) Check out the image below!

The new FRIDAY THE 13TH directed by Marcus Nispel and written by Damian Shannon & Mark Swift (FREDDY VS JASON) stars Jared Padalecki (SUPERNATURAL), Derek Mears (HILLS HAVE EYES 2), Amanda Righetti, Danielle Panabaker, Travis Van Winkle, Aaron Yoo, Adam Finberg, Nick Mennell (ROB ZOMBIE’S HALLOWEEN), Jonathan Sadowski, Nana Visitor, Arlen Escarpeta, Ryan Hansen, Richard Burgi, Julianna Guill and Willa Ford. It opens in theaters on Friday February 13th, 2009!

UPDATE: Shock Till You Drop.com just got a high resolution version of the image above which debuted in Entertainment Weekly today. (Well done, Rotten!) Click the close-up of Jason below for a better look! (That’s Willa Ford in the water, by the way.)

    This is RAD!!! How did I not know they where remaking this? It might sound ridiculous, retarded or to some, just plain stupid but, out of all the Horror films that are out there, I have to say, Friday the 13th along with A Nightmare on Elm Street are my favorites. Freddy is the greatest Half-lifed, Undead, Dream Demon that ever was, A brilliant genius in his own right, hilarious and as eccentric as a serial can come, and Jason, well, what can I say about Jason Voorhees. He seems to be the mamas boy we all wish we could be! He is just a heartless, bluntly, brutal, badass and, to put it as blatant as I can, just ( a mater-of-fact kind of guy) He’ll walk up to you, possibly tilt his head and doesn’t even need to say anything. You can tell by his body language that he’s saying, Hi how are you, oh and by the way, have you met my friend Machete. And then, regardless of wether it’s a Machete or one of his other friends, you always get a proper introduction.
    Can’t wait to see the remake.
