According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jonathan Liebesman is in negotiations to direct Friday the 13th, the remake of the horror classic that Platinum Dunes is producing for New Line Cinema.
Friday made Jason, the unstoppable hockey mask-wearing killer, a 1980s horror icon, though the serial killer made only a brief appearance in the final frames of the first movie and never killed anyone. Jason didn't even don the famous mask until the third movie. The remake will incorporate components of the films, though it is known that Jason will wear the mask and will kill. The setting will be that of the first movie, Crystal Lake.
