New Friday The 13th Film Finds Director

Chad Langen

Darkness Falls and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning director Jonathan Liebesman is said to be reteaming with Platinum Dunes to helm their upcoming Friday The 13th film, which was once said to be the eleventh film in the seemingly endless franchise but is now said to be a remake to the 80's classic.  Mark Wheaton will write the script, which will feature Jason Vorhees' origins in some new original way.  Things are looking good for the film considering it's on the fast track in hopes of being released October 13th, 2006.

The original Friday The 13th followed a group of camp counselors being hunted down by a serial killer after they allow a young boy, Jason Vorhees, to drown.
