Rebel 'Friday the 13th' Film Project

January 17, 2007 -- A small rag tag group of young filmmakers have taken on the ambitious project of doing a film adaptation of one of the first original Friday the 13th novels to come out. That novel is the first of Eric Morse's Camp Crystal Lake novels, Mother's Day, Berkley Books 1994. The story takes place after the events in the film JASON GOES TO HELL.

Jason has been sent to hell. A hunter digs up Jason's hockey mask and puts it on. He becomes possessed by the evil of Jason and terrorizes a group of campers who have decided to camp at the site where Camp Crystal Lake once existed. For Director/Producer Cory Stevens this has been a three year journey to translate Morse's young adult novel onto the big screen. But it has been a labor of love for this young film student, who has financed this film out of his own pocket. The production got an added boost when the author, William Pattison (who wrote the novel under his pen name Eric Morse), gave Stevens and the production his support. Pattison has joined the production as Executive Consultant and will be lending the production his voice talent in an important voiceover role. The production also features a cast of talented young actors.

They include Mali MacConnell, Benjamin M. Santos, Corey A. Lucas, Dave Conte, Nicole Lillie, Stephen LoVerme, Allyson Smith. It also includes Paul Bradicich as old man Varner, and Derek Jimenez as the murderous the hunter, Joe Travers. Principle photography started during the summer of 2006. It is currently on Winter break and will finish in spring of 2007. The film will be released on the internet on April 13th 2007. Currently, there are three trailers available on the internet. Also the filmmaker has released two sneek preview scenes from film and a behind the scenes clip on the internet. These trailers, scenes, clips, as well as the script, stills, and cast and crew interviews can be seen at the Official movie page at: www.homestead.com/f13bloodbath/mothersdayfilm.html

Update on the 'Friday' Remake

January 8, 2007 -- With the "Friday the 13th" coming out late 2008, according to information gleaned from a screening at Platinum Dunes' "Hitcher" remake (Dunes is also remaking "Friday"), some info has come out about the nature of the film. CHUD reported from its interview with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, who are making it:

Fuller says that the film won’t be The Best of Jason Voorhees, but they’re free to pick and choose elements that they like the best. And their Jason will wear the hockey mask, even though he first got it in the third film. Form told me, “I think there are moments we want to address, like how does the hockey mask happen. It’ll happen differently in our movie than in the third one. Where is Jason from, why do these killings happen, and what is Crystal Lake?”

And then Bradley Fuller dropped the bomb on me: “And how does Tommy Jarvis fit in?”
