‘Friday the 13th’ Shooting Update

A little update for you Jason Voorhees freaks out there. We received word that Platinum Dunes’ remake of Friday the 13th will now shoot on April 21 in Austin, Texas. No casting has been announced thus far, but expect some updates once the untitled David Goyer projects gets rolling. This shouldn’t effect the planned February 13, 2009 release date by New Line Cinema. The remake, which will be directed by Marcus Nispel, will focus on Jason Voorhees — who will wear the mask and kill — and keep the famous setting of Crystal Lake.
