Marcus Nispel will be directing the "Friday the 13th" remake for Platinum Dunes, according to the Hollywood Reporter. This is good news for fans, since Nispel also directed Plantinum Dunes' great "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" remake.
The film will start shooting in the winer -- i.e., very soon. "While Jason made only a brief appearance in the final frames of the first movie in 1980 and didn't even don his famous mask until the third movie, the new movie will focus on Jason -- who will wear the mask and kill -- and keep the famous setting of Crystal Lake."
