Bloody Disgusting broke the news this weekend that the first ever trailer for Platinum Dunes’ upcoming remake of Friday the 13th will be attached to the release of Lionsgate’s highly anticipated sequel Saw V. That means you’ll be getting your first look at the new Jason in action on October 24th, 2008.
Marcus Nispel is directing this reimagining of the Jason Voorhees mythos. It isn’t a direct remake, as the original Friday the 13th didn’t feature Jason for more than three minutes at the end. While Jason’s mother will be making a cameo appearance here, this is strictly Jason’s film. And the trailer should put to rest any fears that you might have about this particular remake.
The new Friday the 13th will hack its way into theaters across the country on February 13th, 2009.
