[Random Cool] Never Before Seen ‘Friday the 13th’ (2009) Concept Art!

friday-the-13th-2

Can you believe it’s been around four years since the 2009 Friday the 13th remake hit theaters? Jason Voorhees is once again M.I.A., and that sucks.

While we dream of seeing him slicing and dicing on the big screen once again, remake writers Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, who also penned Freddy vs. Jason, shared the following never-before-seen production sketch of the infamous slasher, whom would be played by genre fav Derek Mears.

Jason Voorhees concept art by Christopher Shy, commissioned by Marcus Nispel. Beautiful,” the duo explain.

As bizarre as it sounds, the remake only took in $65M after plummeting in its second week of release. The worldwide gross was an unimpressive $91M, which could explain why a sequel has never been greenlit.

    The friday and 13th remake was dreadful. They tried to copy IMHO the Rob Zombie formula after his commercial success with his take on Halloween. Additionally, the kills were meh, the jump scares even worse and how come when Jason walks there is no sound? Particularly when he climbed the house and entered the bathroom. Ninja Jason! MArcus Nispel started nice with TTCM but everything else since was meh (Conan could be considered a guilty pleasure though ^_^)

    It’s too bad. Despite some flaws the remake was excellent and they did a great vision of Jason himself. Here’s hoping they finally greenlight a sequel that goes back to a real camp setting!

    i liked the F13 reboot/remake! it’s the best entry since part 5. all the F13 movies where Jason was a zombie are god awful abominations.

    I thought the way they summarized the events with Mrs. Voorhees in the intro was a cool idea. However, I remember absolutely zero from this movie beyond that point.

    The F13 remake was pretty damn dreadful, but this article is worse. Seriously? The film was in no way a financial disappointment. $91 million for a $19 million film is not unimpressive for a world wide tally.

      Jerry, i agree. when Mr. D. says

      “The worldwide gross was an unimpressive $91M, which could explain why a sequel has never been greenlit”,

      i’m confused since sequels get greenlit all the time for movies that didn’t even make $91 million.

        I think Mr. D, like usual, forgot that while opinions are subjective that box office numbers are not. F13, like it or not, was a financial success. It not being greenlit for a sequel has nothing to do with that.

    Same here on your last thought djblack, I also liked the reboot/remake but I still liked friday the 13th part part 6!

    It was a well done remake but there was hardly anything new. I remember seeing it opening weekend with my mom who is also a horror fan… damn it feels like yesterday. 4 years… i was 20 now 24.
