Just yesterday we told you that casting was well underway on the new Friday the 13th, while a separate report pegged the shoot to take place in Conyers, Georgia this coming March.
Now, a casting call has made its way online revealing something extremely interesting: not only will the new Friday the 13th feature a young Jason Voorhees, but they’re casting twins. Before we overreact, it’s quite possible that they’ll be shooting long and late hours, thus having a second actor helps them avoid legal issues. (Children under 18 are only allowed to work a specific amount of hours per day, by law.) It’s also possible that this does have something to do with the film’s plot; what if Jason isn’t the one who died in the lake, but his brother (or vice versa)? That would help explain Jason’s growth into a full-grown man. But alas, I’m sure it’s the former as the casting seeks identical twins who must be “lengthy and awkward”, and “have a very electric and expressive face.”
Shooting from March 19th to May 4th, 2017, the casting call holds one more surprise, a slightly different title: Friday the 13th, Part 13. This confirms what Brad Fuller and Platinum Dunes producing partner Andrew Form revealed in a previous interview where they acknowledge that it’s a special occasion: the 13th Friday the 13th.
Friday the 13th could hit theaters by Friday the 13th of October 2017.
