Friday the 13th
Producer Michael Bay
, who in addition to Pearl Harbor
has brought us intentionally frightening fare such as remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
and The Amityville Horror
, now is setting his sights on resurrecting Jason Voorhees in a Friday the 13th
redo. Alas, with no director or stars attached yet, insiders tell the Hollywood Reporter
that it's unlikely the slasher pic will be ready in time for Friday, Oct. 13 — which is OK. This has more of a Christmas-release, feel-good vibe to it.
