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.
