While at the red carpet premiere for MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, we caught up with your new Jason Voorhees, Derek Mears, who chatted with us (briefly) about the reshoots, sex and violence in the film, along with the potential for a sequel. Read on for the skinny and check out Friday the 13th in theaters February 13, 2009.
Derek took some time at the red carpet premiere to address a few questions FRIDAY THE 13Th fans have been asking on B-D over the past few weeks. First he addressed the “reshoots” that took place a few weeks ago,
“We reshot two of the kills,” Mears tells Bloody-Disgusting. “They were good before, but the producers decided to go back and give them a little extra TLC.”
In a previous interview, Mears told us he was a pretty big fan of the franchise, when asked if he had seen the remake yet he replied, “UGH! NO. I have not seen the film yet. It’s driving me crazy!”
As for sequel talk, there have been rumblings…
“I’ve heard rumors [about a sequel], but nothing official. I’m guessing it would all depend on how well this one does first.”
But the most important question we asked was if the film will have more boobs, or more violence (and count each boob)…
“Ha! Boobs or Violence… (counts on fingers) Definitely more violence,” he says with a sinister grin.
In Marcus Nispel’s FRIDAY THE 13TH, searching for his missing sister, Clay heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake, where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins that lie in wait behind moss-covered trees. And that’s not the only thing hiding under the brush. Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has, with the help of a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are about to find much more than they bargained for. Little do they know, they’ve entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history-the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake, armed with a razor-sharp machete… Jason Voorhees.
